CHAI release new single ‘Donuts Mind If I Do’

The group have also announced their singing to Sub Pop!

To celebrate the fact that they’ve just signed to Sub Pop, Japanese quartet - and firm DIY faves - CHAI are sharing brand new, excellently titled, single ‘Donuts Mind If I Do’.

“Keep going on!” CHAI says: “When you’re feeling vigorous, when you’re feeling sick, You like what you like! No changing that! Even if what I like is as simple as a donut

Accompanied by a new video directed by Hideto Hotta, Hideto says, “In order for various concepts of society, societal structures to have been built up and exist today, there had to be changes to those concepts, to those structures in every era to continue to lead to the next society…with that said, in this music video we explore the CHAI you know today, and then CHAI as elderly women. On an all-white table cloth, eating donuts, sits CHAI. They can even sip on the tea in the teapot if they’d like! Ultimately time passes, and the elderly CHAI is still there, enjoying their last supper in the middle of the meadow, white-table cloth and all eating their donuts. CHAI changes physically, but one thing that does stand still is them living in their truth. If finding true happiness is one of the goals the human race is constantly in search of, then conveying this in this visual, spreading what happiness means to CHAI, to me, is something I feel is important in us living in our truths.”

The track is lifted from their upcoming double A-side, which also features second track ‘Plastic Love’ that’s set to arrive on 6th November.
