The new album from The Chords UK is released today worldwide on EPOP Records. Their third album ‘Big City Dreams’ boasts 14 new tracks and is released on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

Helmed by founding member and songwriter, Chris Pope, The Chords UK were formed in 2013 to continue playing ‘classic’ Chords tunes such as ‘Maybe Tomorrow’, ‘The British Way Of Life’ and ‘So Far Away’. But Chris isn’t interested in remaining frozen in time and his aim has always been to push forward to develop a new identity, a new sound and new songs with a contemporary harder edge. ‘Big City Dreams’ does exactly that.
 
Even allowing for the time lost to Covid, the band now have five years of touring under their belt, including dates in Europe and the USA. They have released two critically acclaimed alt – rock albums, ‘Take on Life’ (2016) and ‘Nowhere Land’ (2018). ‘Big City Dreams’ is the next step on for this impressive outfit. The band, comprising Chris, Kenny Cooper and Sandy Michie have been cited live as “an incendiary rock n roll outfit” by Louder Than War.

Chris himself was described by Paul Weller as “the best songwriter of his generation”, by Uncut as “savage as Townshend with a toothache” and Vive Le Rock as creating, “timeless song writing and understated brilliance!”. He’ll take that.
 
‘Big City Dreams’ is an album fizzing with power, energy and verve.
