“…an upbeat moment of craftful pop music” – Pilerats
“…Slinky and seductive, it’ll hook you quick.” – Dave Ruby Howe, triple j
“…we have every reason to believe Chymes is here to stay.” – Purple Sneakers
In her world of sleepless nights and self-discovery, Chymesdelivers another bittersweet narrative in the form of an upbeat electronic-pop track, titled ‘GITY’ (Give It To You) alongside the announcement of an upcoming live performance, premiered via Good Intent last night.
Shifting slightly this time from her trademark downbeat ethereal soundscapes, though staying true to her delicate vocal timbre; Chymes’ latest track explores emotional complexity and the vulnerability that comes with precarious romantic relationships.
“GITY is about trying to be everything for someone. Trying to show someone you can be there, look after them, give them whatever they need. And maybe it’s not the best thing. The song is kind of like a plea for help. When you’re holding on, waiting for someone to let you in but you’re just giving yourself away to someone who won’t let you get close to them”, explains Chymes.
The song arrives off the back of a fruitful year for Chymes, most recently supporting artists such as Austen and Winston Surfshirt and was booked to play Lost Paradise Festival 2019. With an ever-growing fan base across the globe following a retweet from BTS star Jungkook, Chymes has been streamed over 7 million times across Apple and Spotify. Her previous releases ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Sleepless’ have featured in a handful of Spotify’s editorial playlists including ‘New Pop Revolution’,her earlier tracks ‘Dreaming’ and ‘Wild’ have been featured on season one of the U.S. drama series ‘Good Trouble’.
Catch Chymes’ live performance at a BTS super fan and bushfire fundraising event, held this weekend at the Harold Park Community Hall, organised by Connect:Sydney and BTS Collective.
