CHROMA – ” Don’t Mind Me “

Posted: March 9, 2023 in MUSIC

Chroma are one of Wales’s best-kept secrets, this fearsome Welsh three-piece have been producing righteous bilingual noise pop for the last few years, powered by visceral guitars, pummeling drums and Katie Hall’s powerhouse vocal performances. Now they’ve signed to Alcopop! Records, and shared their new single ‘Don’t Mind Me’ It also serves as the first taste of their forthcoming debut album, due out later in 2023. Laced with chunky fuzzy bar chords, and twitchy drums, it serves as a platform for Katie’s incendiary vocals that chart her struggles with mental health, magnifying her personal experiences and raging at the unfairness of the mental health system, it’s a universal struggle and offers an “I’ve been there too” lifeline to many who have suffered with their mental health, especially since lockdown. “Oh my head is hazardous!” she exclaims over this most explosive chorus, ‘Don’t Mind Me’ hits hard in more ways than one! Katie Hall“Don’t Mind Me” is about my personal struggles with my mental health.

When we started Chroma, writing lyrics quickly became one of my main outlets to process my feelings. The song is about recognising when you’re in a spiral and trying to catch yourself. Also, I wanted the lyric ‘Don’t mind me I’m just having a breakdown’ to help people who are feeling isolated feel like they’re not alone. When I’m going through a rough patch, I always turn to music to make me feel better. I want people who are going through something, whatever it is, to listen to the song and feel seen.”The track arrives ahead of the band’s appearances at SXSW in Texas, which include a slot on the Focus Wales showcase on March 16th, and the Alcopop! Records showcase the following day.

Debut album is coming via Alcopop! Records in 2023
