REC’D: Chromatics – “Kill For Love”

Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

Portland electro quartet Chromatics will release their forthcoming LP Kill for Love in January, but if you can’t wait that long, we totally understand, and so do the band.

You can watch the video for the album’s title track now – it’s a beautiful but relatively simple performance video (shot on grainy film so it looks like home videos of when your parents were cool) allowing the song to stand firmly on its own two feet.

It didn’t really need much help to shine though – “Kill for Love” is a really hypnotizing, fascinating song that will definitely get you psyched for the record, as Ruth Radelet warmly croons her sweet, cryptic confessional lyrics while her band effortlessly weaves a bubbling, dreamy, New Order-esque soundscape.
