CHROMATICS – IN FILMS (ItaloDisco/Sytnh – US)


Just a few weeks after their hazy and cinematic single “Just Like You”, synth disco four-piece Chromatics are sharing a brand new tune taken from their forthcoming album Dear Tommy. The song is called “In Films” and, as always, it is available as a free download from frontman Johnny Jewel’s SoundCloud.

“In Films” is surprisingly cheery and bright considering the band’s back catalogue of moody slow jams and melancholic disco tunes. On this new track, Ruth Radelet’s vocals show unprecedented confidence laid over bouncy drums and upbeat guitars, not to mention the super catchy chanted hook. There is still no official release date for the new album but we know that it will include 17 tracks, among which are reworked versions of “Cherry” and “Camera”, two songs taken from the 2013 compilation album After Dark 2.

Three years after their hugely successful album Kill For Love, Chromatics share the first single from their forthcoming album Dear Tommy, which will be released on Italians Do It Better this March.

This haunting slow jam features Ruth Radelet’s whispery vocals over smooth synths and hypnotic beats. Just the kind of elegant melancholic electropop one would expect from the band.

PHILOSOPHY OF SOUND – IT IS LIKE THAT (Disco/Electro – Australia)

Philosophy of Sound

What do you get when you combine a master’s degree in philosophy with a love of dance and electronic music production and a fascination with the latest forms of disco influenced sounds? Philosophy Of Sound – an electro nu-disco project spearheaded by Melbourne based producers Martin K and John Salmon, bringing you hot disco guitar licks, booty shaking bass and a selection of some of Melbourne’s best vocalists.

Martin is a philosopher turned music producer originally hailing from Poland, who after spending some time in his other project Koshowko decided to start a ’beyond-disco’ side project. John has an international background as a DJ and producer. Over the last few years both have been working in close collaboration with various electronic music labels and artists, which has led to many remixes and releases on several labels in both Australia and Europe.

“It Is Like That” is the duo’s debut single with Discotexas and it is part of a three release plan that will be unveiled in the following months. As of now, the single is already supported by The Magician, Social Disco Club, Tiago and Tronik Youth.

As a bonus, get your hands on Philosophy of Sound’s excellent remix of “Cairo” by Polish up-and-coming electropop trio Kamp!
