Many are the artists that can replicate almost perfectly the sound of the ’80s post-punk/pop sound that was brought to life by icons like The Church and Echo & The Bunnymen. Few are those that can do something new and interesting with that template. In the latter category you’ll find the Bergen-based band Chain Wallet. They have the chiming guitars, slightly fey vocals, and arms akimbo lyrical bent down pat, but with the added twist of a bit of C86 dreaminess and an atmosphere that feels like walking into the cold air after a warm night in front of a fire.
