Chalk Horses was a shortlived band born out of the ashes of Wellington band, Rifles. Simon Middlemiss (guitar) and Thomas Brown (vocals) relocated the band to Auckland and through the influence of their new drummer Txomin Bisset (DHDFDs) shifted focus from the punk infused indie of their previous band to a loop based approach more akin to the slowcore of Low, or even the trip hop sounds of Portishead.
Released posthumously in 2014, this double A side cassingle release showcases two beautiful and ambitious tracks from a lost album that hopefully will resurface one day.
