Taken from their debut LP due later this year ‘Eternal Light’ is a groove filled slow jam with tinges of Chronixx’s reggae roots. The track proceeds recently released ‘On Sight’ (ft. JID, Kadhja Bonet, MKINNA), ‘Time’ (ft. Mac Miller and Kali Uchis) and ‘Beauty and Essex’ (ft. Daniel Caesar & Unknown Mortal Orchestra).
“It was a pleasure to work with Chronixx on ‘Eternal Light’. The melody ideas he comes up with are unlike anyone else. They are totally different from the usual R&B pop writers we work with.” – Callum Connor (Drums).
