Album: Soundtrack For A Nonexistent Film (2020)
Play Video

Songfacts®:

  • This instrumental, as the album title implies, is a piece of soundtrack music for a film that doesn't exist.

    Analog Players Society is a New York City based collective led by Ben Rubin and Amon Drum. They assembled various musicians for the project and had them create sounds that they then essentially used as samples; "Chase" is based on a riff from saxophone player Donny McCaslin.
  • The song is meant to evoke a car chase - the guys had the '70s TV series Starsky & Hutch in mind. "It builds melodically and goes back down, and it's got this tension to it that doesn't really go away," Ben Rubin said on the Songfacts Podcast. "I was just lucky to have the genius of all the musicians in there," Amon Drum added. "The only thing that I added was the synth bassline, which really is stupid simple, but that's what I wanted. I wanted something that was grinding and ridiculous."
  • The music video was directed by Jude Goergen, who does most of the band's visuals. The main running man is played by their friend, Ramin Hedayati, who is wearing Amon's Adidas sneakers.
