Ruth Radelet, the former lead singer of Chromatics, has unveiled her debut original single. ‘Crimes’ was made in collaboration with producer Filip Nikolic of Poolside. Listen to it below.
“‘Crimes’ is about the pursuit of success at the expense of one’s integrity, and the exploitation of others in order to get ahead,” Radelet explained in a statement. “It’s about the price we pay for our choices, and whether or not it’s worth it. The question, ‘Is it easy to start over?’ can be interpreted in two ways – it’s meant to ask how it feels to continually reinvent yourself until you lose sight of who you are. It also asks how hard it would be to walk away from it all.”
Following the dissolution of Chromatics last August, Radelet shared a cover of Elliott Smith’s ‘Twilight’.
