Video: Chromatics "Back From the Grave"
- Words: Nathan Albert
Portland's Chromatics has been leaking cuts from its upcoming Kill for Love LP in the form of Alberto Rossini-directed music videos for the past few months now. The audio-visual aesthetic of "Back from the Grave," the fifth and latest in that series, harkens back to that of 2007's brilliant Night Drive, offering a haze of italo-infused dream-pop anchored by Ruth Radelet's forthright vocals and the analog sensibilities of the Italians Do it Better pedigree. That label (which Chromatics' Johnny Jewel helps to run) is yet to give a solid release date for the rest of Kill for Love, which has been delayed since January. (via Pitchfork)
