Portland synth-rock/ dark pop outfit Chromatics return with their 5th studio album (and first for 5 years) Closer To Grey. Johnny Jewel’s Italians Do It Better label has perfected an unmistakable aesthetic, where each record envisions its creators as would-be movie stars and their music as the cult classics we ought to remember them for, and no band or sound plays into this more than Chromatics. The record blends reverent covers of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Sound of Silence’ and Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘On the Wall’ with their more typical, minimalistic synth sounds that give Ruth Radelet space to let her intimate yet powerful voice take control.
Closer To Grey is released 10th January 2020 and will be available on CD and blood red LP.
