Vinyl Theatre released their new EP, aptly-titled Chromatic. Hailing from Milwaukee, their sound involves indie rock laced with funky synth lines resulting in a colourful, vibrant sound.

With drums pulsating, guitar solos shining and killer sing-along choruses, this is a really fun and upbeat record, my favourite kind!
