The new album by Chromatics is finally here—and it’s nuts. It’s been five years since the excellent Night Drive from the electro-pop outfit, but Kill for Love just came out via iTunes after many delays and the release of five music videos from the record. But anyone thinking this might increase Chromatics’ audience by building on the acclaim heaped on the band after featuring on the Drive soundtrack may need to think again.
Kill for Love is epic—it clocks in at over 90 minutes in length, with 17 songs included in total. Among those is their oddball cover of Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)” (just titled “Into the Black” here) and a 14-minute closing track titled “No Escape.” Italians Do It Better is promising a double vinyl release of this at some point, but no details on that are forthcoming at present. For now, head over to iTunes.
