Chandeliers "Mr. Electric"
The four members of Chandeliers are set to unleash their debut album, The Thrush, this October, and have pulled out all the art funk goodness for the occasion. The Chicago-based band has spent the last couple years blossoming in the city's avant-rock scene, perfecting its own version of the laptop-meets-guitar sound. "Mr. Electric" features punchy keyboard melodies over rapid snare drums, with a slinky funk flavor underneath. Groovy is generally a word to avoid when describing music, but in this case, the term fits perfectly.
