Chateau Marmont "Nibiru"

If there was any doubt in your mind that motorik space-disco was alive and well, Parisian quartet Chateau Marmont will certainly assuage such notions. The title track from the group's forthcoming second EP, Nibiru, is a pure Italo number, complete with arpeggiating synths, a driving beat, thick spacial electronics, and an ominous choir lurking behind it all. "Nibiru"'s pace remains constant throughout its five-minute runtime, but big key changes, plenty of instrumentation, and epic movements in the song's trajectory keep things fresh and interesting the whole time.
