Chicklet are (Kyungsun) Julie Park (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Barida (guitar, vocals, synth). Sean Bettam (bass) was part of the group from 1997 to 1999. Bettam toured with Chicklet throughout the US to support their first album Wanderlust. Chris Sytnyk (bass) recorded on several Chicklet releases including Lemon Chandeliers, Wanderlust and Indian Summer. Bettam later moved on to form a new project Telladega while Sytnyk continues to work with the band in the studio.

Chicklet started as a side project from other musical projects. Park had just left the band Brill while Barida’s band Groundcover had recently split.

Chicklet recorded, produced and independently released Daisy Smile and Kittyin 1995 and played live shows throughout Toronto.[1] In 1996, Chicklet were invited to Livonia, Michigan to record the song Shellac, which was recorded and produced by legendary 4AD musician/producer Warren Defever of His Name is Alive. The song attracted the attention of California’s Dewdrop records and was included on the compilation Splashed with many a Speck.
Later that year, Chicklet signed with California’s Satellite Records which marked the release of their first Satellite recording, Premiere. The recording was released on semi-transparent purple 7” vinyl, and introduced the band to a larger audience while attracting positive reviews from press in both the USA and Europe.
In 1997, Chicklet recorded an EP titled Lemon Chandeliers at Toronto’s Audiolab Studio with Chris Hegge. Chris Sytnyk recorded bass while Barida played the drums on all the tracks. Park and Barida followed up with a full-length album Wanderlust in 1998, which was also recorded in Toronto at Audiolab studio.
