Exclusive Single Premiere: Max Chillen "Vietnam" (2015)

18 year old Brisbane musician Max Chillen is certainly drawing influence from all the right places, citing the likes of LCD Soundsystem and TV On the Radio as inspiration for his off-kilter sound. The multi-instrumentalist is just about ready to showcase his dark dance-punk style to a wider audience with a six-song EP, titled Coffin Fit, premiering the project's first single here on the AU.

"Vietnam" is an energetic odd ball of distortion using two guitars, an early 2000s electronic drum pad, two glass jars, a can of hairspray ("for percussion"), and a reference to Powerpuff Girls, placing Chillen as one of the more interesting new Aussie acts we have come across in recent weeks.

Chillen tells us that Coffin Fit will deal with death, love, and Karl Stefanovic and will be released for free on his Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages on October 31st. Listen below:
