“Stand Out Chameleon” is out now, buy/stream it here.

On the tails of a successful foray into the US with their SXSW appearances, CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE today shares their single “Stand Out Chameleon,” a total carnival ride of a maximalist pop, 90s rock & RnB-inspired jam that doesn’t quite fling itself off the rails (though it comes close, in a good way). With the single comes an adrenaline burst of a video – listen and watch “Stand Out Chameleon”  HERE.

“Stand Out Chameleon” may start out a little bit more subdued than what you’re used to from the group, who isn’t afraid to collaborate with artists of any genre – from punk rockers wielding metal guitars, to TCTS (Kelis, Ed Sheeran, David Guetta) – but as soon as it ends you’ll want to hit repeat to get the bop started right over again. With horns beefing up the drama and the wall-of-sound feeling of the track, the percussion gives you that drum line feeling; you can see the cymbals flashing as they twirl while the bass rattles your bones. The video hypes things up even more with a sugar rush of Froot Loops, candy skulls, and other youthful indulgences and playthings that have you reaching for your very own inner child, too.

Of “Stand Out Chameleon,” Chi- says, “This is a song that only CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE could have written, striking a perfect balance amidst these fast-changing times. It’s got this classic yet cutting-edge beat and groove that will make you want to dance.”

CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE is led fearlessly by Chi- – who wears her hair in a daring trademark orange French bob – and backed by Whoopies No.1 + Whoopies No.2. Drawing inspiration from artists like Beastie Boys and Beck and turning it in the direction of hyperpop, CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE has been tapped by Spotify Japan as a “RADAR: Early Noise” artists, and have since garnered 7 million streams on Spotify alone. Every aspect of the creative direction is shared between the three members of the group, from the visuals, the styling, the production, and the writing process. The creativity of CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE and the energy they put into the music is unmatched. With one of a kind eclectic taste, CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE creates a chaotic, upbeat, almost cartoonish world, while delving into our darkest human emotions.  CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE
is the next-gen artist who is going to sublimate the hyperpop genre with their double-sided creations.

CHAMELEON LIME WHOOPIEPIE recently wowed US crowds at SXSW with the immaculate party atmosphere of their live set. In Japan, they’ve already made their TV debut on CDTV (a late night show on TBS Japan), have been synced on Uber Eats Japan, Featured in NYLON Japan, and have collaborated with Grammy-nominated rock band FEVER 333 guitarist Stephen Harrison (Harrison DM-ed the band himself, asking to collaborate), UK techno producer (and Kelis, Ed Sheeran collaborator) TCTS and Tokyo Experimental beatmaker PARKGOLF.
