Chromatosestarts with the title track, which hooks you right from the beginning. The song boasts impactful musical elements involving intense brass sections, tight, groovy drum parts, sudden surprise elements with heavily distortion-driven guitars, and more. The second song, None Other Than Dirty D, is a chill song with beautiful saxophone melodies played over a mellow groove with occasional drum elements that catch the listener’s attention every now and then.
Chill Pillis the following track, and this song brings to the table some of the most skillfully played, groovy, creative bass lines. Besides that, another attraction of the song is the saxophone line that plays over the bass, along with the beautiful synth lines that make you close your eyes and feel the sound. The next song, Blow, is again a highly bass-driven song where the instrument adds sheer awesomeness to the wonderful and intriguing rhythm section and happens to be the centerpiece of attraction.
The EP ends with its final track Frogadelic, and as the name suggests, there are sounds of a frog’s croak, used as musical elements in the song. The rhythm of this song is very catchy, and the percussions add beautiful colors to the tribal-music-inspired rhythms. Overall the sixteen-minute thirty seconds long EP, Chromatose is an absolute treat to listeners, and once you listen, you will perhaps add it to your playlist. Check out the EP here:
