Rainbow Chan | Skinny Dipping
Sydney’s Rainbow Chan officially released her first single from her brand new EP due out mid 2013. The single is called “Skinny Dipping”, a charming aquatic love-tune featuring a few Rainbow Chan touchstones — cascading melodic electronic blips, unexpected musical transitions, and a bit of celestial imagery. The lyrics are a pretty trip into memories of old love, washing up in waves of melody, and overlapping vocals: “It was clear, night was still / The water was black ink … / I stepped back, you stepped forward / Dancing without care / Close my eyes, feet on sand / We were younger than / Taught us to remember how we swam under stars / Night was falling ’round us like a veil.” This is a marvelous release. Note: Lyrics are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.
