I’m a little late to this (I got caught up with working on some other cool stuff), but a couple days ago Italians Do It Better head Johnny Jewel posted on his SoundCloud page the cut “Just Like You,” the first single from Chromatics’ forthcoming Dear Tommy album.
It’s a gorgeous, cinematic slow-burner that along with the 8-track demo of “Shadow” forecasts a pronounced David Lynch vibe on the followup to Kill For Love. I think that spending time working with Ryan Gosling on his directorial debut must have rubbed off on Jewel et al.
Dear Tommy is slated for a March release, and until then IDIB will debut a single a week.
From Chromatics’ Facebook page:
