Chavis Chance - I Hope I Die First

August 03, 2022

If you've never heard about Chavis Chance, then it means it's the first time you come to IMC. In that case, welcome! We hope you will enjoy this song, and if you do, feel free to follow us for more incredible music, carefully selected for your ears.

"I Hope I Die First" is Chavis Chance's third feature on IMC. The song has been released on July 14th and is part of the superb "3 2 1" EP released the same day. It also contains the wonderful "Three Still Listening", that Joe Pope reviewed almost a year ago in an "Artist Pick" that you can read here. We discovered Chavis back in December 2020 with "Bluebonnet Trail".

Chavis Chance is a traveler. Born in the US and now living in Valencia, Spain, he traveled the world last year, and when we listen to this EP, we can only think that it was very beneficial. "I Hope I Die First" is the last song of the EP and concludes it with a kind of new feeling: future nostalgia. You know, when you just spend good times with your friends and don't know what's going to happen at all. 

As Chavis said, "this song started out as bit of a bitter joke... but as I got deeper into writing it, imagining these two young people sitting on top of a parking garage just like my friends and I used to do in high school, I found it just turning more and more into a completely sincere statement. I imagined those two people looking out at their lives together with all the hope, fear, and anticipation that time brings. The song tries to zero in on that feeling".

Mixing electric guitar, piano, and fantastic backing vocals, the song takes you on a journey between the present and future. We often hear about the death in today's music, but we truly think this song brings another dimension to it: seeing death from a positive perspective. Even making jokes about it. That's what we call clever writing.

The melody is nothing but catchy. We listened to the song once, and we got it running in our minds for the whole day. With bewitching vocals that we could listen to all day long, Chavis scores points, and will inevitably make you want to listen to the rest of the EP. We have rarely heard so much passion for music in a track. And it feels good!
