Chromeo; Kings of Cool ...

Posted on the 07 February 2014 by Tlb Music Blog @TLB_Blog
The likes of Daft Punk, in our eyes, have some explaining to do when it comes to how their latest album received such a prestigious status, when music like Chromeo's (which is on par with, if not better than theirs) doesn't nearly get the same attention. Their latest single, Come Alive, is quite possibly even cooler than the last effort we wrote about, and we can't comprehend how their name in the UK is much more massive!
Chromeo; Kings of Cool ...The fact is, there's absolutely no other way to describe this one other than you simply have to wiggle your arse to it! The funkiness of the track is what sets it all off, and there's no way that you can escape it. They have used the same methodology as Daft Punk in how they create their music, but somehow, they have not received the same recognition for it.
The kaleidoscopic beat bursts in after a few raindrop-like synth sounds open up the show. The vocal, quite soon after the drop, is a high pitched effort that falls effortlessly off the back-end of the music. Annoyingly, the comparisons to Daft Punk, and in particular, their collaboration with Pharell Williams, are way too easy to make and that makes us wonder if the reasoning that you won't know Chromeo, is that their sound's space has already been filled in the market.
We think there should be enough space in the market for another group like Daft Punk, and we don't think there is anyone better in the world to fill that space than Chromeo. They consistently stun us, and the way in which they've never changed their directional plans really amazes us ... one day they'll get the recognition here that they deserve, and you'll be able to say that you heard it here first!
