Chymes – ‘Taken’

Chymes – ‘Taken’

After a string of impressive singles that have lit up 2021 with joyous indie-pop vibes, Australia’s own Chymes is back with a brand new single, and this time, she’s teamed up with the stunning Aston. Uniting to produce the ultimate “anti-fuckboy anthem”, the pair have recently shared ‘Taken’, a scathing, but utterly enthralling, new release that is set to soundtrack the closing days of the year.

An assertive anthem that hits with an infectious refrain, ‘Taken’ sees both artists’ delivering their best vocals to date, hitting with edgy, bass-heavy production that leans into the darker territory found on Chymes’ recent cuts like ‘Death Wish’ and the stunning 'Love Me Like You Hate Me'.

“This song was beyond fun to create. Writing with a good friend is such a pleasure and we really were able to combine our joint love for sassy, hard-hitting lyrics and punchy production for this track,” Chymes says of the writing process behind ‘Taken’. Lyrically, ‘Taken’ centres around being lured in by those who already have a significant other and the “temptation and frustration that comes with that.”

Aston echoes the sentiment, adding “It’s the worst because you create a bond with someone totally unaware that they have a partner back at home. Usually, more than one person gets hurt in the situation.”

“It was cool to turn this somewhat hopeless lyrical concept into something that felt flirtatious, upbeat and mouthy,” Chymes added, reflecting on the track and announcing it in perfect style. You can stream the new single above and make sure you follow Chymes for more amazing hits.
