‘Better Late Than Never’ is an epic collection of soulful, hip-hop-infused songs. Laden with captivating hooks, connected by a strong backbeat, spacey synths and bold eccentric melodies, whilst Chase’s smooth, laidback vocal cuts through over the top to shine a light on our obsessions. 

Chase Woods Said about the EP: “I wanted to have some fun with this EP and not get pulled into anything too serious. I found myself focusing a lot on the highs and some of the more grounding, stages of relationships. Although it mainly stays on course, when it came to EP track ‘Lovesadrug’, I couldn’t help but be pulled into my go-to writing style, which draws on past experiences and takes a darker edge to sonically uplifting songs.”  

He continued to talk about the Lead single “’Bedside Table’ is a love story, written about my partner. The song talks about her little habits that wind me up but make me love her that much more. It’s her imperfections that drive me crazy (In a good way).”

Woods burst onto the music scene in 2020 and has been captivating audiences with his fresh sound and storytelling ability ever since.  At the end of 2022, he released his debut EP Terrace End Tapes, showcasing his musical range and establishing him as one of New Zealand’s most exciting new artists. On the back of these releases, Chase has also completed a successful writing trip c/o APRA Amcos, more to come from these sessions.

Having been compared by online tastemakers to legendary rap acts such as Anderson.Paak and Mac Miller, Chase Woods’ skyward trajectory is set to continue into 2023 and beyond.
