Chromatics have shared new single Teacher and the tracklist for their long awaited Dear Tommy album.
“The apple obscured in fog is enigmatic and open to the interpretation of the viewer,” Johnny Jewel says. “Are we sinking into the unknown or rising from beyond the grave? An apple a day keeps the doctor away and music is the medicine. Our teachers transfer knowledge of good and 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.”
First mooted in 2014, Dear Tommy was last expected in 2018 but has since been usurped by the release of Closer To Grey last year.
