Chewy is an indie rock band from Lausanne, Switzerland whose sound, which falls somewhere in the realm of noisy, melodic pop-rock, has been compared to bands like Dinosaur Jr. or Superchunk. They released one E.P. and two full-length albums during their initial run: Chewy E.P. (1998), Whattookyousolong (2000), and Somanydynamos (2002), before splitting up in 2003.

Singer songwriter Gregory Wicky then released two albums with his solo project Pendleton, and Mathieu Urfer & Sébastien Altevogt created their own new band, Sigurd.

Chewy reformed in 2011, with the release of a new album, Bravado!, in August. The current line-up is: Gregory Wicky, Guillaume Conne, Christophe Roduit, Sandro Lisci. Their style has moved to a folkier sound, sometimes compared to the likes of Wilco or Neil Young.
