Chromatics have just offered up a big treat for their fans. The group had eight songs that they recorded during the sessions for 'Kill for Love' that never made it on the album. Now the band has offered them up for free via Soundcloud.

Johnny Jewel explains the background of the set of songs on his Soundcloud:


“Jet lagged & buzzing from Friday’s show in Paris, I couldn’t sleep… so I stayed up all night with Oko talking about color based dreams while blending these tracks together. Since the album came out, a lot of people on the road have been telling us they are curious to hear some of the unreleased music from the Kill For Love sessions. Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we’d clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, and feel around in the dark… working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm… throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow.”
