'Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences'

The seamless and seductively smooth RnB grooves of Jessie Ware, and synthpop spectacle that is – Chromatics

leave a comment »

Chromatics are a four-piece (Ruth Radelet, Johnny Jewel, Adam Miller and Nat Walker) Electronic band from Portland, Oregon who formed in 2001. The band’s fourth studio album ‘Kill For Love’ was released on June 4th, 2012 and has been regularly cited as one of the top five albums of the year to date. I decided to showcase the title track and ‘These Streets Will Never Look the Same’, from the 17-track synthpop spectacle.

 

The band has just finished a two-week mini tour of the US with Hot Chip and are headed our way for a couple of shows, including The Warehouse Project, Manchester (October 19th, 2012) and Heaven, London (November 6th, 2012).

 

Jessie Ware is an Electronic and RnB singer-songwriter from Brixton, London whose debut album ‘Devotion’ is set for release on August 20th, 2012. Ware has been described as having a ‘chameleon voice’ and I think that this would be an accurate description of the instrument. She can seamlessly and seductively glide between smooth RnB grooves and razor-sharp emotive pop with an electro edge. Definitely something for all tastes and appetites. Her current single is ‘Wildest Moments’, which has been a regular feature on the playlists of leading UK radio stations this month. I think Ware is definitely one to watch for the future.
