It’s a bloody Canadian take over. A few weeks ago, Chromeo, another outfit from that cold ass land up North released the first single from their upcoming album White Women. Being from Montreal, you can understand why they seem a little creepy somehow, but fuck are they funky as hell – in a way that is really impressive melodically and actual song-wise, but also kind of comedic in a way. A sound that definitely came through via songs like their 2007 wonder Bonafied Lovin’ and one that shoots back through in the new single Come Alive.
I’m not a fully fledged fan of the band, but have enjoyed the odd single here and there, such as the aforementioned track from 2007’s Fancy Footwork, and the single off the following album, Don’t Turn The Lights On. This is definitely one of those moments and I can’t help but enjoy this one thoroughly. It’s fully of creepy sex noises, the odd slap of the bass and it absolutely amazes me how a band can produce a song that seems like a piss-take on 90’s R n’ B yet is strangely incredibly catchy and enjoyable in a way that is not even slightly humorous.
