Chromatics are the reflection on the dark side of the street. With Night Drive, they were barely there but they seemed to weigh a ton. Beautiful vocals giving life to city phrases, rhythms that keep everyone moving but not quickly enough to miss the crash. There are times when you can’t listen anymore to them because it hurts too much, and then you press play again. There’s an intimate distance to their music, with just enough separation that you don’t really know what’s going on.
The Portland five-piece returns with their new album “Kill For Love,”(March 26, 2012) which gained immediate Pitchfork praise of “Best New Music”. The band will perform at Forbidden Fruit, making it their debut Irish show!
