Chrome Sparks Shares New Single Ahead of Debut Album via Counter Records
'Still Think' is available now, with an album due in April.
The album arrives after a series of much-tipped singles and EPs on Future Classic. It is the product of an obsessive approach to production as much it is about a restless hunt for new ideas over several years spent between Malvin’s Navy Yard, Brooklyn studio, and a secluded cabin in upstate New York. He spent a month there to escape the distractions of the city, and to distil his process during what became an intensive period of creativity. We’re told that it “boasts” a “sparkling” sound: a euphony of hip-hop, house, and bright-beaming synth work.
On new single “Still Think,” the vocoder vocals and saccharine melodies show a predilection for straight-for-the-jugular songwriting. But there’s also a lush texture and intricacy to the synths and arpeggios which underpin the track, hinting at the studio gear—in particular, a trusty Moog synth—which was a vital part of how he made the record.
“Still Think” is available now, and streaming in full below—with the album scheduled for April 13 release.
