Since breaking out in 2018, CHAI have been associated with explosive joy. At their
live shows, the Japanese four-piece of identical twins MANA (lead vocals and keys)
and KANA (guitar), drummer YUNA and bassist-lyricist YUUKI have become known
for buoyant displays of eclectic and clever songwriting, impressive musicianship,
matching outfits, delightful choreography and sheer relief. 

Their third full-length and first for Sub Pop, ‘WINK’ contains CHAI’s mellowest and most minimal music and also their most affecting and exciting songwriting by far. While the band leaned into a more personal sound, ‘WINK’ is also the first CHAI album to feature contributions from outside producers (Mndsgn, YMCK) as well as a feature from the Chicago rapper-singer Ric Wilson.

WINK’ is a fitting title then: a subtle but bold gesture. A wink is an unselfconscious
act of conviction, or as CHAI puts it: “A person who winks is a person with a pure
heart, who lives with flexibility, who does what they want. A person who winks is a
person who is free.” YUUKI noted that “With this album, we’re winking at you. We’re
living freely and we hope that when you listen, you can wink and live freely, too.”
