Foggy Notions Presents the Irish Debut of Chanel Beads. Tickets on sale now.

Chanel Beads — the project of New York-based musician Shane Lavers — has announced a headline US/UK/EU tour in support of his debut album, Your Day Will Come, out now via Jagjaguwar. Having just wrapped a sold-out tour with Mount Kimbie last month, Chanel Beads will return to the UK for a headline show at Corsica Studios, London, as well as Rally and End of the Road festivals in August, before wider UK and European dates (and Pitchfork festival) later in 2024. Also announced is their first North American headline tour.
Chanel Beads have also released an official video for album standout ‘Idea June’, directed by Dana Greenleaf. On ‘Idea June’, Maya McGrory takes lead vocals to project Shane’s lyrics, singing in a voice that’s both earnest and digitally processed as though she's speaking as a separate embodiment of Shane. In under two minutes, distorted guitars and cinematic strings by Zachary Paul land somewhere between detachment and kinship, becoming strangely affecting despite its unfinished and liminal form.
Your Day Will Come marks Lavers’ arrival as a new force in experimental music. Throughout the album, Lavers captures the many contradictions of modern existence and the strange infiniteness of the digital world. Though he incorporates the scrappy sonics of post-punk, the gripping sentimentality of pop tunes, and the spectral artifice of electronic music, he blurs lines through unconventional song structures that build into transcendental climaxes. As he intentionally prints his songs down to embed fried artifacts and ghostly remains, the resulting songs have a time-collapsing quality, both transitory and timeless.
Praise for Chanel Beads and Your Day Will Come:
“[Chanel Beads] exists at the intersections of ambient electronic, sophisti-pop, field recordings, and top 40, executed with impressionistic ease.“ — Teen Vogue
“...they sound like the soundtrack to a montage of every dream you’ve ever had.” — Loud & Quiet
' of the most brain-zappingly original bands you'll have come across in a long time.' — Electronic Sound
“For all its oblique melodies and wobbly production, Your Day Will Come evokes a strange kind of beauty.” — Pitchfork
“[Chanel Beads has] won over fans with its peculiar, genre-bending singles. Shane Lavers’ songs playfully push the boundaries of instrumentation.” — SPIN
"[Your Day Will Come is] a showcase of Lavers’s originality and boundless imagination."— Paste
