Artist Interviews Wire

Since 1977, Wire has been reinventing its sound through experimentation – even though they emerged out of the British punk scene, they always resisted categorization. In 2002, they started their own record and distribution label and have continued their evolution towards elder pioneers that are still restless and curious.

In the following interview, CHIRP DJ Erik Roldan sat down with Wire’s lead singer Colin Newman to talk about their history, their future and what makes them so special.

Artist Interviews Architecture in Helsinki

 Architecture in Helsinki shows are high energy alt-pop extravaganzas. Their catchy melodies and fun, playful lyrics create an environment where it’s welcomed and encouraged to both smile and dance around like a kid; and this Monday night (11/21) at the Metro, CHIRP Welcomes Architecture in Helsinki back to Chicago.

AiH frontman Cameron Bird sat down with CHIRP Radio’s Blake Burkhart for a chat about the visual nature of his band, his admiration of Grace Jones and a recent moment in his career that he considers a “massive honor.”
