OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Copenhagen’s most cherished alternative trio CHINAH recently announced their new album 'Feels Like Forever' and today unveil the stunning visuals for latest single 'What I've Become'.
Following on last year's sleek return 'Promise' and the Guardian-approved 'Mysterious', 'What I've Become' is a deeply ethereal moment on the Danish dark pop masters' debut.
Delving into a moment of semi-serenity, CHINAH trade heavy synths and dark beats with a stripped back and tranquil arrangement. The carefully considered sonic experience still retains the kind of adventurous experimentation and strong melodic foundation that makes their music so endlessly compelling.
Fine Glinvad explains... "The song is written in that place where the outer world is completely still, but there's a torrent of thoughts in your head. It’s about enjoying that internal drama and consider it as important information that tells you what to do."
Simon Kjær adds... "For this song we wanted to make a small arrangement that also feels big and overwhelming. Aiming for the smallest sound source we could find, we found an old plastic keyboard, with a gritty guitar sound, but treated it as though it was a whole landscape of strings."
With the release of 'What I've Become' today CHINAH announce the long-awaited second album, entitled 'Feels Like Forever'. The album is set for release on 19th March via The Orchard and available for pre-save/pre-order now.
“the sound of new Copenhagen cool” - i-D
"powerful and invigorating" - COLORS
"menacing, alluring synth-pop" - Highsnobiety
"a come-hither dose of electronic eyelid-batting that would seal the deal on any grubby dancefloor." - Guardian
'Feels Like Forever' by CHINAH is out 19th March via The Orchard, featuring singles 'Promise', 'Mysterious' and 'What I've Become'.
CHINAH was formed in 2014 by a special composition of musicians and personalities. Vocalist Fine Glindvad is a daughter of a banjo player and grew up with bluegrass music, whilst guitarist Simon Kjær, as well as the man behind the synth, Simon Andersson, comes from a background in experimental electronic music.
After swiftly coming to the fore both at home and internationally with the debut EP ‘Once The Lights Are On’, and developing a formidable live reputation through shows at SXSW, The Great Escape, Iceland Airwaves and Roskilde Festival, the band then released their game-changing debut album 'ANYONE' in 2018. The record earned them rave reviews and regular plays on BBC Radio 1, as well as a COLORS show and a glowing endorsement from Munroe Bergdorf.
