Chromatics release free rarities album, on new Italians Do It Better comp w/ Glass Candy & Desire (who have a new video)

Chromatics at MHoW, July 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Since the album came out, a lot of people on the road have been telling us they are curious to hear some of the unreleased music from the Kill For Love sessions…Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we’d clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, & feel around in the dark…working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm…throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow…

The above update was posted with a new “album” by Chromatics titled Running from The Sun, which was culled from the Kill for Love sessions. Stream/download that in full below, where you’ll also find the lyrics and the tracklisting.

Desire, a band that contains two members of Chromatics, have released a new video for “Tears from Heaven” from the the forthcoming Italians Do It Better comp After Dark 2 (release date TBD). Check out that video below, along with the tracklisting. Chromatics, Glass Candy (who are on the lineup of the upcoming UR1 Festival), Farah and many others also contribute to the comp.

RED CAR Lyrics
Do You Feel So Blue In Your Shiny Red Car ?
Will You See Your Friends Burn With You In The Fire ?
Standing Alone On A Beach
Slipping Away From The World
Or Did You Find Your Heaven Pass Beside The Road ?
Oh Red Car
Now That Your World Is So New
Hang The Tears From Your Grave
Spend My Nights Driving In Circles
Can I Still Feel The Same ?
Steering Off Of This Road
The Flames Become Glass
The Shadow In The Distance
You’ll Never Pass
Oh Oh Red Car
Oh Baby Girl

Everybody’s Got A Secret To Hide
Everyone Is Slipping Backwards
I Drank The Water & I Felt Alright
I Took A Pill Almost Every Night
In My Mind I Was Waiting For Change
While The World Just Stayed The Same
I Can’t Remember If I Like What I Said
I Can’t Remember It Went Straight To My Head
I Kept A Bottle By The Foot Of The Bed
I Put A Pillow Right On Top Of My Head
But I Killed For Love
You Say You See It Almost Every Time
A Little Number Counting Back To Nine
I Can’t Remember If I Like What I Said
I Can’t Remember It Went Straight To My Head
But I Killed For Love

The Burning Flame Is Flickering Now
I Say Walk With Fire
It’s The Same Dream Every Night
Don’t Be Scared It’ll Be Alright
& If You Hold Your Thoughts Too Tight
They’ll Say You Can’t Keep Running From The Sun
Morning Comes & They’re Waking Up
Drinking Blood From A Paper Cup
It’s The Same Old Dream We All Had Last Night
& They’ll Be There Burning Next To You
If You Say Your Prayers Tonight
Be Careful What You Ask
& If You Lock Your Windows Tight
Daylight Still Peaks Through Cracks
Running From The Sun

Spent My Life Inside This Room
& Disappeared Some More Each Day
The Screen Stayed Flashing In My Mind
I Couldn’t Run Away From You
You Kept Me Hanging On The Line
I Get So Lonely All The Time
I Try To Find My Way Back Home
These Streets Will Never Look The Same
My Broken Heart Erased Your Name
The Screen Stayed Flashing In My Mind

You Saw Me Standing Alone
Without A Dream In My Heart
Without A Love Of My Own
You Knew Just What I Was There For
You Heard Me Saying A Prayer For
Someone I Really Could Care For
Without A Love Of My Own
