    It’s a heady, dazzling blend of pop, punk, dance, funk and electronica, moulded into a swirl of kaleidoscopic energy.

    Punk is a huge step forward for CHAI, and easily one of the best albums of the year.

    Unafraid to delve into their every whim, from the accomplished to the adventurous to the absurd, CHAI are just about as now as you can get without stumbling into the unrealized.

    New cute or not, CHAI make a pretty strong blend of all the best bits.

    Even though Punk might not be the pop explosion that Pink was, it's a well-rounded album that capitalizes on the band's imagination and capacity for experimentation while blending the sounds more organically. Plus, it's more fun than just about anything else going on in the late 2010s and that alone makes the record and the band worth checking out and falling (and staying madly) in love with.

    A joyful revolution.

    With PUNK, CHAI have defied all expectations, decreeing that everybody to them is cute--and they don’t need to be.
