Losing yourself is made easy with the latest installment from Small Black. New Chain is an album that's easy on your ears while still bringing a strong presence to the lo-fi chillwave scene.
“Panthers” starts you off with an outer-spacey feel that pulls you through the cosmos. On your ride strange synths mixed with the smooth voice of Josh Kolenik provides the perfect guide. “New Chain” is a more upbeat track that makes you feel like you may be in a dream sequence of a late-'80s movie.
Songs like “Hydra” take you through what feels like a jungle of sound; with every turn there stands a new beat. Small Black is setting new standards for the chillwave movement with New Chain.
