Chromatics share new single “Teacher” & announce the tracklist for their long-awaited Dear Tommy album.
“The apple obscured in fog is enigmatic & open to the interpretation of the viewer. Are we sinking into the unknown or rising from beyond the grave? An apple a day keeps the doctor away & music is the medicine. Our teachers transfer knowledge of good & evil. From the fairytale of Snow White’s endless sleep to the Garden of Eden in the book of Genesis, exposure is the agent of change. Music is a language communicated by the artist but ultimately defined by the listener’s own exposure to sound throughout their life time. I can’t change my past, but I can choose to break the cycle & not pass the poison apple I was fed to my daughter.”
School’s out forever.
– Johnny Jewel

Unreleased Chromatics Cover Of Hole’s “Petals” For The Ending Scene Of “The Perfection”.
“…Lonely Hearts Club Left Behind…”
In “Time Rider”, Chromatics employs the metaphor of a motorcycle as a sort of inter dimensional vehicle between the future and the past. In this dream, the motorcyclist mirrors myths of the grim reaper as Ruth Radelet eerily asks “Can I take your hand? I want to ride with you into the storm.” Life after death. Future past.
Produced & Mixed By Johnny Jewel. Out now on Italians Do It Better.
