With the release of his debut album Unfall, Chase Tremaine takes a fresh approach to some classic genres that gives the record a life all its own. Laced with addictive progressions, a soulful vocal approach, and youthful zeal, Unfall boasts ten tracks of Tremaine's anthemic pop-rock aesthetic.
The new single “Search For Myself" immediately grabs you with its infectious pop groove, followed by an escalating arrangement that allows the song to build and breathe as it plays on.
"The song 'Search for Myself' is about the futility of self-discovery. It's becoming such a popular narrative in the modern consciousness that 'knowing thyself' is the answer to your woes, or that self-fulfillment should be your greatest priority in order to live a happy, meaningful life," explains the songwriter about his single. "My general thesis in this song's lyrics is that we should stop treating our 'true selves' as some concrete, unchanging, infallible reality; instead, we should recognize that we are constantly growing, changing, learning, adapting, etc., and doing so in a mix of good, bad, and neutral ways. Likewise, I believe we should redirect our focus from learning about the shifting sands of our self identity to learning about truth that doesn't change. You should not, and cannot, be the center of your own universe -- you will collapse beneath that weight."
Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Chase Tremaine is coming from, Unfall should be heard in its entirety.
"The marriage of complex rock and catchy pop accomplished on this album is almost unreal to me; it's greater than anything I ever thought I would be capable of," says Tremaine of creating the record. "And it's constantly being affirmed by fans, whose favorites are frequently the newest songs: 'Search for Myself,' 'Matter,' 'Honest Tree,' and the album closer 'Unfallinlovewithable.' If 'Search' becomes a successful single, that would be all the sweeter, since nothing about the song was a hackneyed attempt at creating a single or a 'song for radio.' In fact, the original acoustic version of this song came very easily and naturally to me, so I would absolutely love to write more songs like it."
Having an undeniable love for music from a young age, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chase Tremaine began his musical journey in his childhood by writing his own versions of songs he heard on the radio or at church. By the time he reached 4th grade, he was writing original songs on his own, and a few years later, as his influences changed, Tremaine started writing songs inspired by a newfound love for modern rock. As time went on, the artist took drum and piano lessons, but it wasn't until he picked up a guitar that he had found his calling. Progressing quickly at the instrument was impressive even to his older brother, Taylor, who had spent years touring with nationally signed acts. Upon returning home from tour, Taylor put his own band together, and Chase would shadow him as the band's guitarist.
Mentoring Chase as a guitarist, drummer, singer, and songwriter, Taylor had the support of his younger brother through various projects. In 2016, the two of them relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where they now take part in performing and co-writing with acts around town. With an arsenal of original songs, Chase began working on his debut record Unfall, his first effort as a solo artist, in 2019. The album is a testament to where his sound is right now, as well as where he can go in the future.
Unfall is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets, and the artist is currently working on new material for upcoming releases.
