Almost a decade ago, the Canadian duo Chromeo introduced their unique blend of electrofunk to an exponentially growing global audience. White Women, Dave 1 and P-Thugg’s 4th studio album coming this spring on Atlantic, refines their signature 70’s and 80’s influenced quirky pop songs, masterfully crafted in the tradition of the finest R&B, disco and funk.
For all the retro talk, Chromeo’s music is, more than ever, anchored in pop’s present. This is reflected in the band’s collaborative approach on White Women. They unexpectedly resurrected Death From Above 1979 as their backing band to perform “Sexy Socialite” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, they shot an epic album trailer with Parisian design firm Surface to Air to preview “Over Your Shoulder” and partnered with contemporary artists Snarkitecture, MILK Studios & Tumblr to create The White Room installation in New York. The newest edition (pun intended) in an ever growing and exciting list of collaborators is Toro y Moi, featured on their buoyant new single,“Come Alive”.
