Chief Scout - Oh Shit ( Song Review )

Chief Scout are from Athens Georgia in the U.S.A.  I just came across them this morning in a live video from the YouTube channel Athens Ga Live Music.  I would say they are an Alternate Indie Rock Band and I was rather surprised to hear such catchy and melodic tunes. They are a 3 piece band of guitar, bass and drums. The lead guitarist fills out songs nicely with catchy melodies, but at the same time his playing style is dynamic... ranging from very heavy to soft. The bassist also has an interesting style, that works in a totally different ranges of the songs. Basically he is just not following what the lead guitarist is doing chord or note wise and that's a good thing! The bassist is basically filling out the rest of the song and adding his own personality when its needed. The drummer plays in a way that fits well with the dynamic of the band and is not overwhelming the songs and knowing when to hold back and using restraint when needed, but at the same time knowing when to rock and play heavily. The lead singers vocal style is of its own, meaning it has its own, one of kind quality and does not sound like most typical alternate indie rock groups.

The song "Oh Shit" is quite a nice and catchy fulfilling song and the music video is surprisingly entertaining! I like the lead guitarists / singers guitar riffs. The song has a way of taking you on a journey with brief ups and downs to keep you entertained.

Chief Scout have a self titled album out now on most all digital sites such as Apple Music and Spotify.
