Emerging from Edinburgh’s underground, electronic duo Chuchoter blend gripping pop vocal melodies with precise, striking synthesis.
Inspired by a mix of modern pop and disco, their deep-soul vocals, strong, self-assured lyrics and dirty production create a fresh sound with a club focus. Hailing from rural Aberdeenshire they grew up on James Taylor, The Smiths and Hall and Oates, but have strayed far from their original influences, now leaning towards artists such as Bossy Love, Shamir, Chvrches and Jamie xx. The band is a qualified pop effort made up of vocalist Emily Smith and producer Owen McAllister. Having studied Music at the University of Edinburgh their goal is to create pop music that is both accessible and stimulating. Emily has just graduated and Owen is now a freelance audio engineer in Edinburgh. Following a series of powerful performances supporting Australian garage powerhouse KLLO, as well as Irish pop- rockers Wyvern Lingo, the band are moving onto their first major festival, Electric Fields 2018. Their EP, “Pieces,” released 27.08.18, is a stunning series of angry, powerful maxi-bangers. Featured in The Skinny and the Spinnup Artist of the Month blog it encapsulates not only the duo’s ability to write fresh, red-raw emotive pop, but also communicates a sense of strength and perseverance that everyone can relate to, and sometimes everyone needs.
