Chromeo - "Sexy Socialite"


Before you press play on Chromeo's new single, keep in mind that this is Chromeo we're talking about - these guys have always had a way of making charmingly ridiculous social commentary, and this is a six-minute song called "Sexy Socialite," so if you're expecting anything not absurd, you've probably been living under a Chromeo-less rock for the past couple years. Between Dave 1's seductive pleas to a woman who's too hip for him ("I could be your boyfriend and your counselor"), some percussion assistance from ex-LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney, and that serpentine, Seinfeldian bassline, it's impossible not to groove a little while you giggle. Check it out while you wait for more info about the band's upcoming record, White Women.
