Blood red vinyl. Closer To Grey is the fifth studio album of Portland electronica/synth band Chromatics. Closer To Grey is the first album the band released since 2012. Amongst others, it contains reverent cover versions of Simon & Garfunkel's The Sound Of Silence or Jesus And Mary Chain's On The Wall. The minimalistic Synth-Sound of previous albums is not lost though, and singer Ruth Radelet proves once again how tender and at the same time powerful a voice can sound.
