Published Nov 04, 2012After releasing their remarkable Kill for Love album earlier this year, noir-pop auteurs Chromatics have decided to treat their fans to a new mixtape called Running from the Sun.
The 35-minute blend of tracks is composed of unreleased material from the band's Kill for Love sessions. Here's what Johnny Jewel had to say on his SoundCloud page:
Jet lagged & buzzing from Friday's show in Paris, I couldn't sleep...so I stayed up all night with Oko talking about color based dreams while blending these tracks together. Since the album came out, a lot of people on the road have been telling us they are curious to hear some of the unreleased music from the Kill For Love sessions...Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we'd clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, & feel around in the dark...working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm...throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow. In Amsterdam right now trying to upload it from the hotel. Fingers crossed...
This is a lullaby for you...
