Chroma Bay are a three-piece hailing from Nottingham, UK, making summery, chilled out electro pop. We had a quick chat with them about their upcoming release, Impossible, the football, and just how great Glasto was this year.
Hi guys, how’s it going? Introduce yourselves!
Hey! We’re Scott, Miles and Ben. Collectively Chroma Bay, creating electronic pop music from the heart of the UK.
Where are you at the moment?
We’re currently watching the England game, with our head in our hands!
Oh my days! I think that was all of us! Your debut single Impossible, is out on Friday, how are you feeling about it? And where will we be able to hear it?
Excitement currently outweighing any nerves, as we release our debut single. Impossible will be available throughout all major distribution services and through our social media pages – you can’t miss it!
Impossible has a nice electropop laid back vibe to it, doesn’t it? Very chilled. I really like it, especially the synthy bits towards the end. It’s summery. Good job, fellas! Is this the sound we can expect from Chroma Bay?
Thank you! Definitely, synthy and ‘summery’ are apt to describe our sound. Although, the next two tracks we’re releasing are a little harder hitting than Impossible, and we’re looking forward to pushing the boundaries of our sound in the future.
What’s in the pipeline for you over the next little while?
We’ll be releasing two more tracks over the summer, and preparing for our first set of live shows.
It’s been a pretty excellent festival season so far. If you could play any festival in the world, which would it be?
We’re going to Benicassim this year, and it’d be dreamy to play there! Though, after catching up on Glastonbury this year, we’d have to put that at the top of our list of festivals to play.
Glasto looks like it’s been epic this year. Whilst we’re talking festivals, who doesn’t love a game of Fantasy Festival Lineup? Three (or more) artists (living or dead) that would make your life if you could see them one after the other on one stage… Go!
Stevie Wonder, The Beatles & Led Zeppelin.
Yeah that’ll work! Finally, what’s been your favourite venue to play at? And what makes it so great?
Collectively at one time or another we’ve played at Rock City in Nottingham, and we’d love to come together with Chroma Bay to play there again.
Thanks guys! Enjoy that bourbon.
Chroma Bay told me they’ll be touring the UK later on in the year, so keep checking for tickets. Meanwhile, keep up to date with them on Twitter, Facebook and Soundcloud. We’ll be posting the links to Impossible on Friday 1st July!
