Western Automatic came to the Chicago scene in 2014 with their debut self-titled EP, the product of songwriters Alex Chadwick and Ben Norsworthy and producer Dan Silberman at MHP studio in Evanston, Illinois.
Alex and Ben were both coming off of bands that fell apart and had worked with each other for years so the timing was perfect. Although it started as a studio project it was very quickly clear they needed to perform the material live, so they brought in friends and Chicago natives Samuel Ocean on keys, Dave Brandwein on drums, and Jake Longardner on bass.
The music runs the gamut from grimy power chords to slick pop textures dripping with melody and everything in between. The throughline is in singer Alex Chadwick’s lyrics; sometimes obvious, sometimes obtuse, they paint the picture of someone searching for meaning in a world bigger than themselves. <br>
