Alternative-pop artist Chymes shares her sophomore EP ‘Karma’, which focuses on the complex, darker side of female friendship. Chymes explains, “This EP feels like it’s my Taylor Swift ‘Reputation’ era – I’m calling out the people who hurt me and the friends who did me wrong and I feel like I’ve never been more explicit in my story telling, it’s super personal. It’s a therapeutic EP about shitty friendships and relationships I’ve had, and the journey of going from feeling crazy, heartbroken and lost and then healing from it all and cutting those toxic people from my life.” 

The four-song EP features two unreleased tracks and the recent single “Black Hole Friend” gathered wide support across Asia, entering over 11 Top Hit radio stations across Indonesia such as Prambors, and earned praise from the likes of Rolling Stone India, Media Indonesia, Creative Disc and more.
