Ashrae Fax – ‘CHKN’ jimmy 04/07/2014 dreampop Earlier in the week Ashrae Fax announced the release of their first new album in over a decade! ‘Never Really Been Into It’ will be out this August, great news for fans of the ‘Static Crash!‘ re-issue. The North Carolina outfit (powered by singer Renée Mendoza and producer/guitarist Alex Chesney) have posted the lead single ‘CHKN’. Cocteau Twins comparisons are inevitable, it’s an 80s styled dream popper after all. One thing is certain, the years haven’t dimmed Renée’s vocals one bit! Pre-order the LP via Mexican Summer.
