Taking influence from jazz prog rock, and classical music, CHON are an alternative rock band quite unlike anything else, from San Diego, California. The band’s debut album Grow will be released in the UK / Europe via Sumerian records on the 25 September, and is a beautiful melodic journey showcasing a sound that is very unique to them. Check out the new single ‘Can’t Wait’, which has already had in excess of 350k views on youtube below!
In the past seven years, CHON have gone from playing local shows in their hometown of San Diego to a spot on the Billboard 200 and tours with Animals As Leaders and Circa Survive. On their debut full-length Grow, CHON incorporate prog rock and jazz with lightning quick picking, dynamic drumming and buoyant melodies, creating a sound that’s fresh, exciting and wholly their own.
They released their first EP, Newborn Sun in 2013 and followed it up in 2014 with the Woohoo! EP, The record that put CHON on the map. Much like the title of their debut album suggests, CHON have evolved greatly since forming in 2008. There’s no telling where they will go next,musically, but with the UK and Europe firmly in their sites, more people are sure to be listening.
