Dirty Chime

4 albums

Dirty Chime is the brainchild of solo artist Thomas Clayton, writing lyrics from personal experiences that touch on sensitive subjects such as mental health, self-medication and escapism. His sound spans the gamut— ranging from soul to indie pop to R&B. He has his background as a jazz drummer to thank for his infectious chord play, driving rhythms and silky falsetto.

Chime recently released his debut music video for “Fifty One Fifty," directed by Embyro (G-Eazy, Too $hort).

Chime has garnered additional press from Run the Trap, Earmilk, Your EDM, and more, and has performed with the brass band Bonerama and opened for Bingo Players.

Lyrics:

Thinking about you Every day and every night Yea you know what I wanna do Do to your body Need you to know that I gotta kick it with you and with no one else You call me on the phone You ask if I’m alone I say I know that you been feeling Electricity You talking differently I think you know just what it’s time for I know You don’t wanna just slow down I know It ain't time to behave now I know You don’t wanna go home now I know So give it up, gotta give it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Yea you know what I wanna do Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Yea you know I gotta vibe with you Tangled up in these sheets with you Tangled up in your hair, your smell, your perfect skin. And I can’t go back to the way it was before. No. No I can’t go back to the way it was before. No. You call me on the phone You ask if I’m alone I say I know that you been feeling Electricity You talking differently I think you know just what it’s time for I know You don’t wanna just slow down I know It ain't time to behave now I know You don’t wanna go home now I know So give it up, gotta give it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Yea you know what I wanna do Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Keep giving it up Yea you know I gotta vibe with you

Lyrics:

They all want a piece of you Tear you up like you’re denim Fill you up with?their?venom Emotional predators Delphinidin lives?in my skin Oh how fragile we?really are Don’t want know no one to know it Only face that we show is Ironclad Pull me apart Pry me open We are fragile beings I poured it all out Yea I showed you what i’m all about I got a jaw made of glass But I think that I'm shatter proof Baby you know that I'm complex Gotta inferiority complex Sick of all the mood swings Sick of how the roofs been caving in Never quite felt stable in This skin of mine Pull me apart
