Australian brothers Mitchel and Clinton Cave began releasing music via their YouTube channel before starting pop act Chase Atlantic in 2011 with friend Christian Anthony.
The trio expanded on the Cave brothers' early songs, incorporating elements of contemporary hip-hop and trap production into decidedly alternative-minded pop and rock songs. The trio grew through releasing tracks online and touring throughout Australia. Their 2014 EP, Dalliance, was followed by Nostalgia, another EP released the next year that included the viral single "Friends." Chase Atlantic's energetic songs and relentless self-promotion eventually landed them a deal with Warner Bros. in 2016. The following year, they delivered their full-length debut, Chase Atlantic, featuring the single "Okay." ~ Fred Thomas
