London based Artist CHINCHILLA Gives Us a Little Taste of Upcoming Project With New Single ‘Fingers’
With a string of singles and collaborations under her belt, which have amassed over 17.5 Million streams and earned 2 Estonian Music Award nominations, CHINCHILLA signed to Sony Germany’s Columbia Records after the release of her debut EP ‘Awakening’ early last year.
The new single ‘Fingers’ tells the tale of a toxic ex, your kryptonite, who loves to show up when you’re moving on… they’ve done this once too often. But this time you’re a changed woman, and not the one to be trifled with. You meet them in a dark alley and cut their fingers off, so they can’t pull you down anymore. ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’.
With vulnerable piano and vocal lead verses luring you into a false sense of security, and a contrasting heavy bass drop coming in for a chorus that you can’t not move to. ‘Fingers’ keeps you on your toes… while cutting off your fingers. A dark pop break up song with a twist.
She says, “‘Fingers’ wasn’t particularly thought out”, explains CHINCHILLA. “We wanted to create a song with contrasting verses and choruses, mixing vulnerable and powerful. The lyrics came quite naturally in the writing session from an angry place where someone has wounded you up to the point where you feel crazy. I remember thinking about the Brother’s Grim tales and Sweeney Todd when writing it. I love those stories and thought, what would this kind of story sound like sung in an almost sickly-sweet voice, with pop production behind … a kind of scary sound”.
The rising star has received airplay support from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders and Italy’s Radio 105. From wowing the live stage with her compelling soaring vocals, infectious charisma, self-made wardrobe, penning sharp tongue-in-cheek and empowering lyrics with attitude, the CHIN ethos takes pride in being unapologetic.
So far, we saw her perform across Europe, supporting both Sting on his 2019 arena tour and MISSIO on their 2020 ‘Mafia’ run, as well as a breath-taking performance at The Great Escape and Isle of Wight festival. CHINCHILLA is starting a fire in the music industry and is certainly one to watch. Her forward-thinking, emotionally raw song-writing style has led to relatable, cutting-edge intelligent pop that marks her as a unique new artist. She’s an unforgettable force to be reckoned with, with her sights firmly set on turning the industry on its head.
