Chromatics share “Black Walls”; long-awaited ‘Dear Tommy’ LP out this fall

chromatics-black-walls

Chromatics longintheworks album, Dear Tommy, looks to finally be coming out “fall 2018″ via Italians Do it Better, according to the band. The band haven’t shared further details, but they do have a new single and video, “Black Walls.” While this song wasn’t on the Dear Tommy tracklist that was released last year, it’s a fine example of what Chromatics do best: slinky, glascine synthpop with noir guitar lines and Ruth Radelet’s dreamy, detached vocals. The video, all oversaturated neon hues and prism filters, looks like it could’ve been made in 1981. Watch below.

“Black Walls” lyrics:
Between her dreams & oxygen
The end is all she ever asked
Engines warm
It’s dark outside
A hidden tear behind her mask
Black walls closing in again
Losing sleep & lost in time
She’ll close her eyes
& unlock mine
She turns water into wine
She says she’s no substitute
& she’s always dropping blue
They say there’s no reward for you
But all their lies end on a Monday
Black walls closing in again
Losing sleep & lost in time
She’ll close her eyes
& unlock mine
She turns water into wine
She says she’s no substitute
& she’s always dropping blue
They say there’s no reward for you
But all their lies end on a Monday
They’ll drink theirs
I’ll drink mine
They’ll drink theirs
I’ll drink mine
Raining pain from black walls
She fills up the glass again
They’ll drink theirs
I’ll drink mine
They’ll drink theirs
I’ll drink mine
She turns water into wine
She turns water into wine
She turns water into wine
She turns water into wine
