Australian-born indie duo Chymes is enjoying a boom thanks to the good influence of BTS Jungkook.
In an article titled “K-POP superstars BTS made an indie Australian duo famous overnight,” Australian media outlet The Industries Observer showcased Chymes along with BTS.
“BTS had quite the year in 2018. The Korean boy band owned it at every station, leading the Billboard 200 Albums Chart with two titles Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer (no other K-pop group has cracked the top 10), burning up the box office with a concert film, and setting social media alight.”

“Perhaps feeling the festive spirit, Jungkook showed his love for ‘Dreaming.’ On Dec. 22, he grabbed a screenshot of the track from Apple Music and shared it on the official BTS Twitter account, which counts more than 17.7 million followers. Chymes have been dreaming ever since. In a matter of days, the tweet earned more than 1.18 million “likes” and over 350,000 retweets, with engagement numbers still growing.”
“Chimes’s Twitter account jumped to more than 10,700 in less than two weeks from less than 130 followers on December 2, affecting Australia as well as several countries including Japan, Malaysia, Turkey, and Thailand.”
“Chymes’ Twitter following ballooned from just under 130 on December 2 to more than 10,700 in under two weeks. There’s also been a huge spike on their digital streaming platforms with the Aussies impacting the Spotify Top 50 Viral Charts in several countries, including Japan, Malaysia, Turkey and Thailand.” media said.
Chymes manager Sarah Miller of management company added, “I mean, you never think something like this will happen to you. This only happens to the Justin Biebers and 5 Seconds of Summers’, right?! Once it was confirmed real by the #BTSARMY, it was an emotional rollercoaster of shock, excitement, gratitude, and then around again.”
Meanwhile, Chymes is an indie duo whose early 20s from the central coast of the New South Wales, singer-songwriter Kiersten Nyman and producer Cameron Taylor play pop music with a sweet electric guitar.
In 2016, the album “Grow” drew attention and released single songs such as “Bloom,” “All Time Low,” “Shade,” and “Dreaming” based on Chymes’ restrained indie music.
