The first single from Leeds-based Coping reminds us that the best alternative rock comes from a combination of styles resulting in something new.
With a swelling intro and a punch to the drums you would be forgiven for thinking you’re in for one of those modern pop-centric metalcore tracks when Chapters first starts out. However, the vibe quickly turns grungy and once the verse starts you’re grooving to something that could have come out of the genre’s golden age in the 90s. To top it off the chorus combines an airy stadium-sized guitar riff with some post-hardcore scratchy vocals to keep the song grounded in the heavy side of things. In the end, the result is a song that’s catchy and melodic but could easily start a mosh pit.
