The Chain Gang of 1974 has released new album FELT on Caroline Records today. The 9-track collection expands upon a dreamy synth-pop that initially earned Chain Gang adoration worldwide, progressing into the project’s most strikingly honest material to date. Kamtin Mohager tells us, “After 10 years of having this project, I believe that FELT sounds exactly like what Chain Gang Of 1974 is supposed to sound like.
This is Kamtin Mohager’s third full-length as The Chain Gang of 1974, preceded by Wayward Fire and Daydream Forever. He worked with friend, peer and acclaimed producer Thom Powers of The Naked and Famous to complete FELT.
