Seven years after Kill For Love, Chromatics finally return with a new album, Closer to Grey. You may be reading the title and wondering why Dear Tommy is spelled wrong, but Closer to Grey — dubbed “a film for your ears.” — is actually a new, different full-length than the fabled “white whale” of ice-cold synth rock, and it is out NOW on Italians Do It Better.

In the years since their last release, Chromatics were featured in two parts of Twin Peaks: The Return, where they played “Shadow” and “Saturday” at the Roadhouse. Band member Johnny Jewel has also released a handful of solo albums and film scores, which has only wound up fans even further in anticipation of new Chromatics music.

The long-rumored Dear Tommy was announced in 2014, and while a number of tracks have been released — and subsequently pulled from streaming — the album has been delayed numerous times. So, we can either continue to dwell in this “Waiting for Godot” situation with Dear Tommy, or we can suck it up for now and listen to Closer to Grey.
