Biography

Led by acclaimed drummer Brad Elvis and vocalist Chloe F. Orwell, Chicago’s The Handcuffs explore broad sonic territory while believing in the power of a great radio hook. Bold, sexy songs deliver memorable melodies & unexpected twists. Inhabiting some of the same musical frontiers that have delivered the Ting Tings & Duffy to the top of the charts, The Handcuffs layer sultry pop vocals over a rock/pop-hop backing track. Their songs have seen feature placement in “Gossip Girl,” “The Hills,” “The City,” “Roadtrip Nation,” “Free Radio,” “Jersey Shore” and dozens of other television shows and films on networks such as MTV, VH1, the CW, Showtime, A&E, E!, PBS and more. They also provided the soundtrack for the Sundance and SXSW award-winning documentary “The Education of Shelby Knox,” which aired on the prestigious P.O.V. series on PBS. Songs from their first two CDs, “Model for a Revolution” and “Electroluv” have received airplay on college, community, satellite and commercial radio stations worldwide, including KROQ (Los Angeles), Q101 (Chicago), M3 Radio (New York City), WXPN (Philadelphia), KOPN (Columbia, MO) and InterFM 76.1 (Tokyo).

MORE:
The Handcuffs embody the spirit of rock music’s uninhibited, sexy and overbearing appeal. A perfect blend of style and energy. They do not sound like anyone else, but at the same time they seem very familiar. They are influenced, by everything good that sells and anything good that doesn’t.
