LISTEN: Chartreuse - 'Whippet'

"I'm grasping the neck of all of my friends singing I deserve the same as you do."

Chartreuse never disappoint, and I'm a little in love with this one. I should probably be heading to sleep, but I feel compelled to write as I've just listened to their new single a few times in a row and then fallen into a little Chartreuse shaped rabbit hole. Love them and love this one a lot! They recently announced their debut album Morning Ritual, which is due for release via Communion Music on 10th November - Whippet is the latest single to be taken from it. 

With Hattie on lead vocals on this one, she describes how the track was inspired by a conversation she had with a friend at the pub about life plans and 'settling down.' "She was asking me what my plans were, and I said I didn't know. A lot of our friends have serious careers, and we're in a band. I felt bitter about having to have the conversation, so the line "left like a whippet" is me wanting to leave and stop talking about it."

If you like what you hear - they're heading on tour across November: dates and tickets here. They've also just announced a few instore shows, tickets here.

Pre-order/pre-save Morning Ritual here.
