Chromeo are back! To celebrate this glittering occasion we feel it is only right to bestow you with Chromeo goodies.
First things first, the terrific twosome that is Pee Thug and Dave 1 have released their new song “Night By Night” and if you haven’t heard it you are really missing out. Dave 1 comments, “for “Night By Night,” my first instinct was to create a disco song that a rock guy would have written in the early ’80s. It’s really specific aesthetics that we’re going for sometimes. There are references that inspire us, but hopefully when the songs come out it transcends that. Otherwise what we’re doing would be very boring and derivative.”
He continues, “We get tired of a certain set of influences and we reach for other ones. Our first album was very electric boogie influenced and our second album was very lush Quincy Jones. On this new one we’re going for the funky E.L.O. stuff on certain songs. I think “Night by Night” is a nice way to announce that. If you really analyze the song, it has echoes of a lot of the stuff we’ve done before. The main synth is the same as the one on “Needy Girl.” Then the guitar riff on the chorus that P plays sort of echoes the “Bonafied Lovin’” intro with all the harmonized guitars. Then in the guitar solo there are very unsubtle echoes of the Eagles’ “One of These Nights,” and we just covered an Eagles song, so it made a lot of sense in our heads.”
So there you go, Dave 1 describes it better than we ever could! But hey go and listen to the original edit of “Night by Night” below and then compare it with the delicious Siriusmo Remix of the same track and let us know which you prefer. Whichever mix floats your boat – download them here.
