Chroma have unveiled a video for their new single I Wanna Be Where You Are.

The propulsive, grungy track appears on the Welsh bilingual trio's 2023 debut album, 'Ask For Angela', while the Ren Faulkner-directed clip arrives ahead of their huge date supporting Foo Fighters alongside Courtney Barnett in Manchester this Saturday (June 15). Vocalist Katie Hall said: 

"This song is about limerence. It’s a new word I’ve learnt from the Lalala Let Me Explain podcast. It means to be emotionally and romantically infatuated with someone. It’s like when you have an intense crush on someone who’s not good for you. It’s not necessarily because they're a bad person, it’s because you’re in a bad place so you try to mask your problems with love.  In an age of modern technology, love and dating seems disposable. When I fall into limerence it’s usually because I feel lonely. I think it’s something a lot of people go through. We wanted to write a punk song about turbulent love that people could maybe relate to."

"One of the coolest things about being in a band is being able to creatively direct your own music video," she added. "The idea for I Wanna Be Where You Are came from a hinge date I went on in Port Talbot. I’ve always been fascinated by the steel works every time we drove past that area as a kid, and it’s been on my music video bucket list.

"On the date we chatted a lot about the steelworks closing. It’s an estimated 20,000 jobs in the area. It’s hard to think of the pressure this puts families under during a cost of living crisis. I think Port Talbot is lush, the people and the place. The video also features Welsh designer Rosie Evans' clothes. I love Rosie’s work, and it’s been a dream of mine for some time to wear one of her corsets."

Chroma will also support Newport hip hop parody group Goldie Lookin' Chain on their UK tour later this year.
