Video of the Day: Chick Quest – Savant Garde

When you think of music from Vienna, you’re probably more likely to conjure up images of powdered wigs, grand pianos and symphony orchestras than agile, mariachi trumpet wielding post-punk, but that’s exactly what Austrian four-piece Chick Quest are serving up with ‘Savant Garde’, the first glimpse of what’s to come from their forthcoming second album Model View Controller.

Mashing together New Order-esque basslines, Talking Heads flavoured vocals and brass that could easily be snipped from an Ennio Morricone flick, ‘Savant Garde’ and its accompanying warehouse dance party video point to interesting sounds waiting to be discovered on the banks of the Danube.
