Chroma is the debut album of Norwegian electronic trio Three Winters.
According to the band, Three Winters – made up of Kim Sølve, Anders B. & Lars Fredrik Frøislie – takes inspiration from the vintage sounds on the ‘fifth generation VHS movies’ that defined their generation.
The 11 tracks on Chroma sound like a soundtrack from a lost 80’s sci-fi or horror film. They features the classic sounds of driving analog sequences, deep synth bass, Mellotron, electric guitar and vocoders.
The tracks – with titles like Atrocities, At The Center Of Dystopia & Amnesia – tap into memories of low-budget luridness, cyborgs and slashers. If you’re familiar with the soundtracks of Tangerine Dream, Goblin and John Carpenter, you’ll know where Three Winters gets some of their inspiration.
