CCC-03: Volleyball - Nature Doesn't Rush

  • silas gregory

Chalkpit Cassette Club is back with new treats for all the music lovers out there. Following the critical and commercial success of its previous releases featuring The Howl & The Hum and desert-rockers The Howlers, the club’s third instalment of limited edition, hand-numbered cassettes will celebrate long-standing Chalkpit favourites, Volleyball, coming a long way from their first mention on the Chalkpit music blog, Volleyball have since released six singles and been remixed by psyche legends Morgan Delt and the Holydrug Couple, as well as developing a number of exciting visual projects following their collaboration with ‘The Rattle’ creative collective.

The world of Volleyball is a truly synesthetic experience. Mixing retro designs, hypnotic rhythms, saturated colours and DIY aesthetics, their music contains an undeniable sense of nostalgia and escapism. It is the sound of a good trip; one where the listener is transported to a vivid alternative universe, far away from the mundanity of the daily world. Even their website is an escapist sinkhole, featuring an arcade-styled videogame that is both charmingly simple and deceptively addictive.
Silas Gregory - Founder of Chalkpit Cassette Club said “For me Volleyball are easily one of the most exciting bands to come out of 2021 and a firm favourite of ours at Chalkpit. The band never fail to raise the bar pushing their creativity and musicianship to the limits. I am thrilled to be able to bring them onto the Club for a very special cassette release encompassing their musical discography to date featuring current singles, remixes and even 8-bit versions of their tracks."
