New: Chromatics - "Lady"

Publish date:

Chromatics’ new record Kill For Love is due soon, and their latest teaser comes in the form of a characteristically lo-fi video for too-sexy slow-burner “Lady.” Portland’s Ruth Radelet and company keep it sweet, simple, and plenty dark with grainy, fuzzed-out nocturnal home-video footage and a classically chilly, grooving soundscape that sits comfortably right where chillwave meets new-wave.

It certainly helps the whole thing’s vaguely creepy film-noir feel that Radelet’s cryptic lyrics (“if I could only call you my lady, baby I could be your man”) and confessional croon are in top form. Italians Do It Better are still noncommittal about when the record’ll drop, but stay tuned.
