The Chakras 5 Out Of 5 Album Review On Music News

The Chakras debut album "Build Me A Swan" is out now, download it from iTunes here

"After releasing a promising single earlier in the year (acclaimed by myself), The Chakras finally release their long awaiting debut album Build Me a Swan. Delivering honest, heartfelt indie, The Chakras have lived up to their promising billing with their LP.

Starting off with the soft-toned Movement the band immediately grab your attention with a well crafted keyboard based number, combining elements of Keane & Snow Patrol on the way but managing to steer clear of letting their influences define the group. The bands ability to create different songs throughout the album as the next track Build Me a Swan is guitar based, sounding similar to so many great contemporaries but delivered in such a way The Chakras truly stand out on their own.

The whole album is a great body of work, offering constant subtle variations that make the album flow perfectly. The slow tempo’d Nothing is Forgotten is the standout from the LP, although to be frank anything from Build Me a Swan could claim this title."
