Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
The Chromatics ever-popular 2007 album Night Drive, now remastered and expanded to 15 tracks on a pair of colored LPs, for its 10th anniversary. The lost side of the album is dark and abstract and opens with the almost funerial "Shining Violence" where detuned analog synths collide and struggle to hang onto a fading melody. It's followed by the sleeper hit, "Circled Sun," the bare bones bass and vulnerable vocal of "Bell" and the Vangelis inspired reflection of life's duality in "The Gemini." Night Drive closes with an arpeggiated musical refrain from the beginning of Side One. "Accelerator" reinterprets elements of "Night Drive's" chord progression while leaning heavily on the gear shift. As painted lines in the road begin to strobe, Chromatics propel full speed ahead into an uncertain future. Packaged in gatefold jacket with two lyric sheet inserts.
