Review of All Fall Single by The Chapman Family

Despite having played as part of the NME Radar Tour 2009, The Chapman Family, a quartet from Stockton-On-Tees, have waited until now to knock out this beastly come back single. The frantic pounding drums and electric guitar of 'All Fall', alongside Kingsley Chapman's smooth vocals, bring to mind the likes of Editors and Maximo Park, with a big chorus reminiscent of The Killers.

Towards the tracks' close, the instrumental frantically drives forward with considerable pace and volume as a wall of distorted guitar noise and desperate shouting vocals. It's perhaps quite unusual and peculiar to have an instrumental B-side, but in doing so The Chapman Family really do evidence and reiterate their confident, raucous energy and determined, Placebo-like rock edge. A sterling effort.
