As though the influx of new music from Italians Do It Better artists thanks to the label’s excellent new compilation After Dark 2 weren’t enough, here’s a new song from Chromatics, courtesy Scion’s free 10th anniversary mixtape. If you paid close attention to the band’s post-Kill For Love mixtape Running From the Sun, you might recognize the “Red Car,” a woozy, intense track that sits right on the edge where good dream meets nightmare, with autotuned-out-of-recognition vocals. You can now download the track on its own – and, we suggest, put it on your “late summer nights” mix. Check it out.
