The prodigious New York/Montreal-based electro-funk favorites, Chromeo, have issued another glimpse of what’s in store from their forthcoming third studio album Business Casual. Available at all digital retailers worldwide via Atlantic Records, “Don’t Turn The Lights On” finds the iconic duo exploring new sonic territories and themes while firmly holding their ground as the unrivaled kings of contemporary-yet-timeless synth-infused pop.
Premiering last Friday on Stereogum, “Don’t Turn The Lights On” bridges the gap between the electro favorites of their debut album She’s in Control, with the personal side of Chromeo that emerged on tracks such as “Momma’s Boy”, from their 2007 release Fancy Footwork. The result is an increasingly addictive track that provokes heartfelt nostalgia in ways that only Chromeo can compose – delivering a nod to their 80′s funk and R&B progenitors while exposing the matured songwriting mastery to come.
Following their performance with Daryl Hall that the New York Times hailed as “Bonnaroo Gold”, the band is touring select festival dates in Europe while they prep an all new stage show for the Business Casual Tour beginning on July 26th, presented by Green Label Sound. Full list of North American tour dates listed below.
