CURRENT: Chromatics – “In Films”

When Chromatics released “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around,” I commented, “If the first two glimpses of Dear Tommy are anything to go by, this time we’ll find Chromatics standing in the center of the frame. They’re ready for their close-up.” The great new single “In Films” gives credence to that original statement, as synths blast immediately into the frame, finding the band in the middle of an enormous production. Ruth Radelet continues to dazzle with her cool, smoky delivery staying above the fray below, while never sounding detached. This is stadium music that is just as powerful in the bedroom.

You can download “In Films” now, because Johnny Jewel is a saint. Seriously, send him a thank you note. And buy Dear Tommy when it’s released. We can only hope it’s soon.
