Their sound appeals to a wide demographic with a truly diverse cross genre feel. Proving so, the boys have managed to create quite a buzz in their last few months pushing their new releases, “More Than I Knew”, “Kutter”, “Bedroom” and “Let You Down”. Chakra is currently in pre-production for their upcoming full-length debut record. Their album consists of a very unique, edgy, melodic sound.
