Chaos Chaos released their latest single ‘Need You’ yesterday (September 28). The band will be donating all Bandcamp proceeds from the track to the Loveland Foundation on Friday (October 2).
Speaking about ‘Need You’, the video for which you can see above, Chloe Saavedra said: “I wanted to make an angsty song with autoharp and distorted 808 drums. I made the song in an evening quarantined and drinking a lot of wine.
“My boyfriend and I had recently been living together and I had struggled a lot with singing and recording while he was in the house, it just made me feel like someone was listening over my shoulder, so at the time I had to drink enough wine to let loose and record.”
