With their self-produced album ‘Defender’, Brighton’s Chungking are back to demonstrate all the elements that have made them a connoisseurs’ favorite.

Slick and sultry grooves, coupled with serious musicianship; Proper, deep-rooted songwriting that places them somewhere in a miraculous zone between Kate Bush, The Bee Gees and the ‘Drive’ soundtrack, and which could only have come from people utterly in love with pop music in all its forms. And above all, the voice and multi-layered harmonies of Jessie Banks, smooth as silk and tough as steel.
