Chromatics Release Vinyl Only 'Camera' EP

Thursday, 07 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Chromatics have released a new EP.

'Camera' is only available on 12" vinyl here. It was mixed and produced by the band's Johnny Jewel.

In a statement, they said:

“I Want To Be With You…But Sometimes Life Becomes Too Real…I Want To See The Things In My Heart I Know I Feel”

The opening track is a love song written from the perspective of the camera, asking to be held up to see the world through the eyes of its user. Chromatics’ dense electronics are anchored by the intimacy of Ruth Radelet’s vocals. Framed by negative space, this is pop music from the blurry hours. She softly sings, “I write a song in my head, pretend that I’m lying in your arms”. The music is minimal & bare, layered with sparse percussion. The Camera EP features unreleased material, including a haunting take on Dear Tommy’s title track & the midnight mood of “Flashback To Forever”.

The EP follows last month's announcement that their new album, 'Dear Tommy', is due out this autumn, despite it being reported last year that Johnny Jewel destroyed all previously pressed versions of it. Head below to check out Black Walls, which is expected to appear on the new LP.
