Alex Chilltown releases their fully realised debut Eulogies via Fear of Missing Out Records A pun on Bigstar’s Alex Chilton, Chilltown is the project of London’s Josh Esaw alongside friends and collaborators. The line-up of the band, which is often in flux has featured Esaw as its one consistent member and lead songwriter. In its various incarnations, Alex Chilltown has encompassed members of projects and bands such as Big Joanie, Deerful, Toothpaste, Flirting and Tugboat Captain amongst others. An incredibly personal record, Eulogies is reflective of a life lived claustrophobically, encased in the concrete and tarmac boundaries of South London suburb, Croydon. Eulogies is crystallised in the kind of dreams the can only be borne by such suburban isolation. Eulogies is a sighing ode to the place Alex Chilltown call home. Just as King Krule in habited neighbouring South London districts in The OOZ, Chilltown fully envelop themselves inside the grey malaise and contradictions of post-industrial Croydon. The sites, smells and sights materialise in hyper realism via bursts of luscious dream pop that touch on all cornerstones of the genre without ever being pinned down under the weight of any one influence.
