Chameleonize delivers their take on a break-up song with newest single, “Spoiler”

Every band has their own version of a break-up song- whether it solemnly tells a story of heartbreak, seeks revenge, or simply says “fuck you.” Chameleonize, the 5-piece “soul-prog” group from New York City, decided to tell their own story with their latest single, “Spoiler.”

Staying true to the Chameleonize style, the song combines elements of different styles and soulful lyrics. The band really enjoys playing this live, as it leaves the audience excited and surprised.

The main idea for “Spoiler” was written spontaneously on a laptop in a college apartment in Oneonta NY, where the group first met and returned a few years later for a “welcome back” show. The dense harmonies and movement of the chorus set the outline for the rest of the song. After being shelved for a little while, it was easily completed. The song is about moving on from a toxic relationship and realizing that person couldn’t accept the passion you were willing to give.

This will be the band’s final single before the release of their debut EP, coming out later in this year. “Spoiler” is now available everywhere for streaming. Be sure to follow them on Spotify to keep up with future releases.

“Day Job” Out Now

Chameleonize’s newest release, “Day Job,” tells a relatable story about growing up

The newest release by New York City-based soul/prog band: “Day Job,”  is a grooving tune that combines R&B, Funk, Jazz and Rock, and with Pop vocal melodies. Its quirky female lyrics narrate the struggle of uncertainty many young people face as they become adults in a world of "expectation." It is a lyrical satire, criticizing the perceived “rules” that dictate how we grow up. The band wrote this song at a time when all the members were going through a similar stage in life and attempting to juggle advice from conflicting sides. “Day Job” tells a relatable story that bounces between these conflicting viewpoints about growing up, just as the band-members experienced themselves. Conceptually, the song reminds us to simply find a groove and pursue happiness above all.
