(Clicka qua per la versione Italiana)

London's quintet Chapel Club, fronted by Lewis Bowman, staged a revival of post-punk rock of the 1980s on Palace (2011), that collects the singles O Maybe I, Five Trees, All the Eastern Girls, Surfacing (reminiscent of Dream A Little Dream Of Me) and Blind (reminiscent of Whipping Boy's Blinded). The songs are trivial imitations of the Smiths, Joy Division and Echo & The Bunnymen, something similar to what the White Lies had done before.

They converted to synth-pop on Good Together (2013) and then faded away, irrelevant.
