Ones To Watch & The Noise Present: Chase Atlantic – Phases Tour at Buckhead Theatre
Friday, June 21st at 8:00pm
Australian brothers Mitchel and Clinton Cave began releasing music via their YouTube channel before forming the pop act Chase Atlantic with friend Christian Anthony in 2011. The trio expanded their sound on the Cave brothers’ early songs, incorporating elements of contemporary hip-hop and trap production into decidedly alternative-minded pop and rock songs. The trio grew through releasing tracks online and touring throughout Australia. Their 2014 EP, Dalliance, was followed by Nostalgia, an EP released the next year that included the viral single “Friends.” Chase Atlantic’s energetic songs and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Warner Bros. in 2016. The following year, they delivered their full-length debut, Chase Atlantic, featuring the single “Okay.” In January 2019 the band issued the Don’t Try This EP.
