CHROMATICS Nite LP Red Vinyl NEW 2017
Birds of Prey
When Nite first appeared way back in 2006, Chromatics had yet to release their breakthrough album, Night Drive. Since then, the Johnny Jewel-helmed combo have gone on to bigger and better things, with each successive album bringing a fresh wave of success.
As this reissue neatly proves, their sound was a little different back then. While there are nods towards their later soundtrack-inspired sound (see Birds of Prey and Sleepwalker), much of the mini-album is split equally between fuzzy, guitar-heavy art-rock workouts and, more thrillingly, the kind of thrusting, muscular Italo-disco revivalism that Mike Simonetti's Italians Do It Better imprint once excelled at delivering.
This limited edition LP format is pressed on red vinyl.
