According to singer/songwriter @ChazCardigan, you’re still fine even if “Everything’s Wrong”

CHAZ CARDIGAN, “Everything’s Wrong”

After previously releasing a full-length album and his recent major label EP Vulnerabilia, Nashville’s Chaz Cardigan is back with an indie single follow-up called “Everything’s Wrong”.  This is one that really should have been part of Vulnerabilia.  The song is a cousin to Chaz’s alt.rock radio hit “Not OK!” using similar reverse psychology in its lyrics versus its title.  So just because “Everything’s Wrong” doesn’t mean that you can’t be just fine and dandy, thank you.  There’s more to life than what goes on around you; be creative and shake those ideas out to make things happen!  The song has another very direct and powerful vocal from Chaz which sounds at times like The Killers’ Brandon Flowers and at others like Keane’s Tom Chaplin.  “Everything’s Wrong” is pretty entertaining if you’re listening to Chaz’s music for the first time, and if you enjoyed “Not OK!” then this one will resonate with you too.  Check out the video above.

Your summer singalong is here: “S.O.S” is the latest from Nashville’s @ChazCardigan

CHAZ CARDIGAN, “S.O.S”

Quickly following up the EP Vulnerabilia, which has spawned the Top 30 alt.rock hit “Not OK!” is “S.O.S” by Nashville singer/songwriter Chaz Cardigan.  Still in the anthemic vein, Chaz somehow manages to unintentionally intersect a fresh James Bay kind of journeyman rock style with the party “na na na” rock of 80’s hit “Centerfold” by The J. Geils Band.  With a standout vocal, Chaz doesn’t mince any words (hint: the title does NOT stand for a cry for help!).  He’s out to do himself right even if it doesn’t appear that way to others, and sometimes you need to give yourself the space to do just that so the next time it’s better for you and any others who are involved.  “S.O.S” is rowdy on the outside, and a good time is had by all, but you won’t forget about its silver lining either.

It’s okay to yell I’m “Not OK”, sings Nashville’s @ChazCardigan

CHAZ CARDIGAN, “Not OK”

Although you may not have seen his face in a video before, the name Chaz Cardigan might seem somewhat familiar to you from reading these blog pages.  A similarly named singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist named Spazz Cardigan released a few highly praised singles a couple of years ago that somehow never gelled, though it appears many folks nevertheless had their eyes and ears on his music.  Flash forward with record deal in hand from Capitol’s new Loud Robot imprint comes the freshly minted Chaz Cardigan with “Not OK” (yes, Chaz is his real name).  Be sure to check out the creative video which enhances the positives about not being okay, complete with tons of gummy bears, if you please.  The singer draws a lot from 90’s Beck at the start of the song, but by the end of “Not OK”, it’s become a righteous anthem that would appeal to 5SOS fans, for those times when you’re down and the world looks ugly and you need to chill.  With the big label push I think you’ll be hearing the music of Chaz Cardigan on the radio very soon.
