Ever since Ann Arbor’s Chrome Sparks flew — or rather, stormed — onto our radar with his bubbly electronica patchwork of a track “Marijuana,” he has held our close attention. His newest song “Send The Pain On,” released just a few hours ago, is a beautifully pieced-together musical landscape that winds, glimmers and is full of built-up surges and an all-consuming, throbbing energy. It’s alive and breathes like filled lungs do. Soothing, yet invigorating, it inhales and exhales, like the rise and fall of a heaving chest.
“Send The Pain On” is off Chrome Sparks’ forthcoming EP, due out sometime this winter.
