Slumberland recently announced that it had signed Ohio-based teen sibling band The Laughing Chimes to the label roster. Their new EP is called Zoo Avenue and sees release tomorrow, November 18, on cassette and digital formats.
The Laughing Chimes is a musical project formed by teenage brothers Evan and Quinn Seurkamp based out of southeast Ohio. Living in a small, crumbling coal town on the brink of obscurity, Evan and Quinn wanted to bring to light some of their feelings and experiences from their time here. The project draws inspiration from American and British jangle pop from the ’80s and ’90s; establishing songs that blend enduring sounds with new melodies.
The duo’s 2020 album In This Town drew attention worldwide for its brilliantly timeless songs that could just as easily originated in Athens, Georgia, or Dunedin, New Zealand, as southeast Ohio.
