Whilst Irish five-piece The Chalets came by their name after a booze-fuelled All Tomorrow's Parties, there's little in their music that indicates a love of awkward, obscure math-rock. Anything but in fact - this is playground sing-along indie-pop. Think Le Tigre. Think Bis. Heck, even think Shampoo. Catch my drift? Good.
There's something a little dirty about it too, most evident in b-side (this is a limited edition 7", vinyl junkies) 'Sexy Mistake' (recently picked up by MTV for an ad' campaign). You could call it bubblegum, but it'd be sour flavoured, with a twist of lime - oooh, sharp. Quirky might be something of a dirty word, but The Chalets are great, quirky fun, and should set fire to dancefloors wherever they go.
