Chromatics have returned with a dreamy new single, ‘Toy’. You can listen to the track below.
The single comes in three different versions: ‘TOY,’ ‘TOY (On Film),’ and ‘TOY (Instrumental).’
Describing the song, Chromatics wrote: “It’s a song about trying to forget someone you’re still in love with even though they treat you like a object. I’m not your TOY.”

The single follows the surprise release of the band’s album, ‘Closer To Grey’ last year; a deluxe edition of the album is now also available to stream.
The album was the electronic outfit’s first full-length in seven years, following on from 2012’s ‘Kill For Love‘. The album – released via Italians Do It Better – contained 12 tracks including ‘The Sound Of Silence’, ‘Twist The Knife’, and ‘Through The Looking Glass’.
“I was about a year deep into recording what would become Windswept when I heard that David was making Season three,” said Jewel at the time. “It’s been a year since Chromatics performed at the Roadhouse. With disintegrated memory through the haze of television snow, I wanted to share a glimpse behind the red curtain.”
“The project began as a sonic exploration of the sounds I was hearing in my nightmares. I wanted to find my way out of the maze by focusing on beauty over fear — like the way the fractured sunrise looks in a dream.”
This summer, Chromatics will appear at All Points East and Primavera festival.
