Put simply, Chymes are one of our favourite emerging Aussie musical talents. The duo – Cameron Taylor and songwriter Kiersten Nyman – mesh downbeat electro grooves and melodies with shimmering lyrics and otherwordly production.
Their sound glistens and seduces, as reflected on their debut EP – Grow – which personified their slick ‘bedroom’ production vibe.
We invited Cameron and Kiersten to the Lost At E Minor rooftop recently to perform a few songs, including this one – a richly atmospheric cover of the Jon Bellion hit, All Time Low.
We asked Cameron and Kiersten why they chose All Time Low as a cover and what they were wanting to communicate with this version that the original perhaps lacked.
“We chose All Time Low because we just love the song’s melody. It’s so sweet and catchy. It became stuck in Kiersten’s head so we had to do something with it! We wanted to strip the song back and focus on the pretty intense lyrical and emotional content that can be missed in the original due to the original’s playful arrangement and production.”
