  • "Your life will never be quite the same again...."

    First thing's first. Congratulations. You deserve a medal. 'But what have I done?' I hear you cry. Well I'll tell you what you've done. You've successfully negotiated the myriad that is the information superhighway and now you're here. Whether it be through sheer luck, recommendation or choice, it doesn't matter. You're here. And already whilst reading this, you'll have felt the rush of shimmering indie pop that characterises this 'thing' that you've just discovered. The thrilling, euphoric, winsome chime of The Social Chameleons has filled your conscience, your very being. And now you're hooked.......

    So just what is this 'thing'? This thing of euphoria and melody that jumps out at you so emphatically? This 'thing' is in fact the sound of The Social Chameleons. But who are they? What are they? And where are they from? Another world? Another planet even? No, not quite. The Morayshire coastal towns of Hopeman and Burghead in the North of Scotland to be precise. Four from the former, one from the latter. A very important distinction. So I am told.

    'But that's not very glamorous is it?' I hear you say. But that's just it. That's the beauty of it. From a place more noted for the quality of its ice-cream, comes this. A blast of shining guitar driven pop, seemingly out of place with its surroundings. This is where the beauty lies, as it always has done, and as it always will be.

    So where did it all begin? Like so many great bands before them, the lads first picked up their instruments simply to give them something to do. Round at Dixon's house, bashing away on guitars until their fingers bled. Having a laugh, having a joke, taking the mick out of each other. Good times. Of course, when someone (presumably) blurted out, 'We should form a band lads' it was merely a formality. The lads have always been a band, in that gang/best mates kind of way. Five teenagers with an absolute belief in music and melody. You'll know what I mean.

    Early gigs saw the lads belting out covers at local pubs and parties. The signs were there. Having bashed out the covers to death, the lads began writing their own tunes. Early, more bluesy/rockier numbers were written, played and then dispensed with for a more jangly guitar driven pop sound that you're listening to right now. The Social Chameleons began to find their true sound. Their music continues to develop and inspire. The type of music that's always a winner, the type that gets the girls dancing, and the lads tapping their feet.

    And so, here we are. Right here, right now. This 'thing' that you've discovered is not just any old thing or any old band. This is The Social Chameleons. And your life will never be quite the same again....

    Smile.
