Fresh Selection:Chromatics - In the City
This might not technically be fresh, but it was freshly renewed in being brought to our attention with the anniversary of the Chromatics birthday recently! Chromatics are an electronic band fixed on a path to the well deserved classification of a classic group. 'In the City' is one of their well known tracks off their 2007 album Night Drive, and we love it so much, that we had to highlight it.
It is clearly a melancholic post-disco number that sounds simply timeless. The analog synths and beautiful lead female vocalist go back and forth competing for your attention. Is this an intentional metaphor commenting on city life? I would not put it past this band, especially when the brilliant Johnny Jewel is counted amongst their ranks.
