See: Chromatics release new video for ‘Teacher’

We’ve been waiting a while for news of Chromatics ‘Dear Tommy’ album, so to get a video, a statement from Johnny Jewel on the track and then the album track listing is good news for all.

Teacher is this peerless slice of warm synthpop, all cascading sounds, blurry synths sounds and this gorgeous ethereal vocal shimmering over the top of it all. It’s further decorated with the kind of sing along hook that has you joining in on first listen.

Of the track, Johnny says

“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.”

Goodbye Teacher. 
School’s out forever.

Johnny Jewel
