Based deep within the post industrial dreamland of modern Britain, Chncer is a pursuit for connection through authenticity. Born from the need to express, when faced with the drab every day.

‘The goal of Chncer is to evoke feelings of quiet hopefulness through being lyrically stark, and creating solidarity between those who feel the same.’

Urgency, hope and dancing to your problems.

This is Chncer.
