October 28, 2022 BY Abby Harari
Australian alternative pop artist Chymes releases her new single “Monster,” a dark yet playful track. Known for her unique brand of pop, Chymes pulls you into her world with her delicate yet powerful vocals, intimate lyrics, and flirtatious persona.
“This song is very tongue-in-cheek, crazy, and fun. It plays on this “gaslighting” idea, which I love writing about because it happens to everyone, and I feel like I experience it a lot, especially as a woman,” says Chymes.
She continues, “It’s written about a relationship where things are toxic, and this person brings out the absolute worst in you and turns you into someone you’re not. While the lyric content can read very dark and intense, I wanted to make sure the production of the song felt a little more lighthearted and playful whilst still keeping a dark moody overtone.”
