The cinematic soul of Surprise Chef is based on evoking humour. With vivid arrangements, they use time and space to build soundscapes that invite the listener to enter the band's universe. The quintet's distinctive sound comes from 1970s movie soundtracks, mixing the funky side of jazz with samples that form the basis of hip hop. The first two albums All News Is Good News and Daylight Savings amassed a broad fan base that took music from Melbourne, Australia to all corners of the globe. As they put the finishing touches on their upcoming album, they offer a small taste of what's to come with their new single "Velodrome".
