the Danish Music Awards, Copenhagen-based trio Chinah return today with their first new offering of 2017 called "Even Love", which sees the band trade in their brand of R&B-infused electro-pop, as heard on previously released singles such as "Can't Remember How It Feels" and "Colder", for a smoother, chirpier indie-pop sound. The new single also serves as a taste of their forthcoming Hints EP, due out later this year via Danish label, No3.
Speaking on the track, Chinah explains:
"In our minds, 'Even Love' is not one clear, bright color, as it is neither completely sad, nor completely happy. The color of the song is a shade in-between, that comes from the interaction between the cheerfulness in an up-tempo beat and the melancholy and drowsiness in the vocals and lyrics. We hope that listeners will find this interesting, and that they will not find the vocals too sad/dramatic and not find the beat too cheeky, but instead that they will appreciate the way those two contrasts compliment each other."
