CHAMPS is a band comprised of brothers Michael and David Champion. They were formed in 2011 and released their debut album, Down Like Gold, the same year.
It was lauded amongst critics with rave reviews from the likes of The Guardian, The Independent and Q Magazine and it also received substantial radio support in the UK from BBC 6, BBC Radio 2 and Radio 1.
Fast forward to 2018 and the boys decamped to London, immersing themselves in the underbelly of the East End music scene, which led to a chance meeting with American producer, Sean Oakley (Frank Ocean, Portugal The Man, James Blake). The pair spent the following days with Oakley, going through demos and explaining their vision. There was an immediate chemistry between the three and in late 2018 they booked out Chale Abbey, a studio on the Isle of Wight which stands within the walls of an abandoned monastery dating back to the 1100s.
Between long walks and a few very heavy nights, they recorded 12 songs, which made up their latest album, The Hard Interchange. The first single, Solid Action speaks of the first time Michael witnessed somebody injecting heroin in an underground club in Berlin during one of their early tours. ‘It was done with such jovial determination and control, a very ‘Solid Action’, the nonchalance really affected me.’ Says Champion.
