Genre: R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop

Label: Fearless Records

The Australian alternative R&B trio Chase Atlantic has returned with their third album, Beauty In Death. Since forming in 2014, the band has released seven EPs, two full-length albums, and accumulated over two-hundred million streams on Spotify. The band has always pushed themselves creatively forward for every release. At the start, Chase Atlantic was a much different band than they are now. They once were pop-rock, but as they matured over the years, the band’s musical style followed. Chase Atlantic has always mixed elements of their rock influences by blending them in with elements of hip-hop. Now they’ve upped their game again by incorporating even more hip-hop and surrounding sub-genre elements into the mix. Adding all the new layers into their signature sound, Chase Atlantic pushes their sound further, for what is their most striking release yet. Following the same suit from the past nine releases, Beauty In Death was again self-produced by the trio.
