Picture this: you’re making music with your mates, and you’ve just put out one of your first EPs. It’s only racked up a handful of streams, but you’re already on the verge of hitting the big time.
How does that happen? By going viral, of course; something which happened to Sunny Coast slacker punks The Chats last year after having just released their third EP.
Out of seemingly nowhere, their track Smoko (which is taken from July’s Get This in Ya EP) spread like a wild bushfire across the web and expanded their reach well away from the pub stages they frequent.
Smoko’s ‘s the sound of a band who honestly sound like they don’t give a flying fuck (they might, but who knows?), and even though the undertones surrounding it are largely sarcastic and comedic, there’s certainly potential for them to capitalise on the success of the viral hit they unknowingly bestowed unto the planet.
