Local alternative rock band Chill Russell exist in that happy medium of paying tribute to their legendary predecessors while simultaneously creating their own unique sound. Following in the steps of Gnarls Barkley and The Dandy Warhols, Chill Russell’s name is an amalgam of former Celtics center player Bill Russell and the personality types of their band members. The name “Chill” really does exemplify the way the group gets along but it is a modest name when you consider their musical prowess that draws from 1960s guitar powerhouses and 1990s alt-rockers. Their affection for the greats of the past is apparent through their fast, loud, and fun dynamic. Their self-titled, full-length album will be released on Friday, and expect it to define their sound for the years to come. Join Chill Russell in celebrating the release of their album this Friday at Mohawk, and listen to their Studio 1A session below!
