Archie Bronson Outfit - Chunk
Alex Yau 15/12/2010
Just as 2007 showed bright things for the Pigeon Detectives, they disappeared into the indie ether faster than Keanu Reave's acting career. It's not surprising. After bold claims of releasing two albums in a very short space of time it was predictable. No one has that much talent right? Chunk, a track that resulted from a last minute experiment, could fall down a similar path. Thankfully it doesn't.
Minimalist in nature, Chunk's charm derives partly from the horn and droning guitars which pervade through your mind like an alarm. The quirky bass is the song's main charm as it walks through into your head. It's not an invasive entrance, rather one that you'd invite to sit down and have a good time with.
