Chromatics (Portland, Oregon-based indie electro-pop)

~ Group


Chromatics is an American electronic music band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 2001. The band consists of Ruth Radelet (vocals, guitar, synthesizer), Adam Miller (guitar, vocoder), Nat Walker (drums, synthesizer), and Johnny Jewel (producer, multi-instrumentalist). The band originally featured a trademark sound indebted to punk and lo-fi that was described as "noisy" and "chaotic". After numerous lineup changes, which left guitarist Adam Miller as the sole original member, the band began releasing material on the Italians Do It Better record label in 2007, with their style streamlined into a electropunk-Italo disco indebted sound.

The band began incorporating elements of synthpop and post-punk on their third release, Night Drive (2007), which was met with critical acclaim, and their fourth album, Kill for Love, was released March 26, 2012. Several of the band's songs have been featured in television series such as Gossip Girl and Bates Motel, and their track "Tick of the Clock" was featured in the film Drive (2011). In December 2014, the band announced their fifth studio album, titled Dear Tommy, that was prededed by a number of singles throughout the year.
