Mike (bass), Charlie (guitar) and Whitney (drums) formed Chung Antique spring 2009 while studying at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.

Always instrumental, but initially a quartet with extra percussion, the band developed on the local house-show circuit. In 2011, it pared down to a three-piece, self-released the seven-song demo Go Poetry!, and toured the West Coast. Now based in Seattle, the trio continues its quest for the perfect balance of math and melody.

Sweater Weather — recorded at The Hive and Zoo Zhop in Vancouver, B.C. in winter 2012-13, and released on San Francisco's 20 Sided Records in January 2014 — was Chung Antique's first full-length, the culmination of five years spent zeroing in on its sound. The group toured the U.S. that summer, followed by a weeklong West Coast trip in spring 2015 with Indiana's The Rutabega.

In October 2016, the band released a two-song 7" EP, "Artesian Swell"/"Norse Code," recorded live to 2" tape at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, on Seattle's Electricity & Lust Records. Having recently completed their second U.S. tour — 21 shows in 24 days, including the trio's first-ever East Coast dates — they are currently working on the follow-up to Sweater Weather, tentatively titled Cat Guilt.

Bands Chung Antique has shared stages with over the years include Hum, Low, Dianogah, Speedy Ortiz, Tera Melos, Rooftops.
