The past couple years have undeniably been a labor of love for Austin psych-pop five-piece Chakra Kahn. Though most of the band’s members find origin in local dark wave outfit KNIFIGHT, Chakra Kahn maintains a completely different vessel of pop-rock sounds that flirt between retro and futuristic. The group has taken their affinity for creating compelling soundscapes and is pushing the psychedelic envelope exponentially further with a brand new full-length album!
Stillness is Motion puts Chakra Kahn on a sonic midpoint between Flaming Lips, Supertramp, Mac Demarco and ELO, with layers on layers of perfect performances all stacked together into one upbeat (yet introspective and socially conscious) experience. Stillness is Motion comes out on September 21st and the vinyl release party is October 13th at Barracuda. Whether you’re busy this Labor Day or taking it easy, you’re in for a powerful psych-pop premiere of a previously unheard track from Chakra Kahn, “Retrograde Movement”!
