Italians Do It Better have announced details for the American group's fourth album.
The 2007 LP Night Drive made Chromatics a flagship act for Italians Do It Better, the Seattle-based label run by Mike Simonetti. That record closely followed the haunting indie-disco feel of Simonetti's label, with RA's Patrick McNally describing it in terms of "sleepwalking arpeggiated bass, frictionless nightglide synthesiser pads and rhinestone spatter of glittering high-end piano." Based on the title track, Kill for Love seems to trade the disco vibe for a more indie rock feel, while maintaining the lo-fi approach.
Kill for Love is slated for release in January. Word has it that Glass Candy—another Italians Do It Better group who share a member with Chromatics—also have an album in the works called Body Work. More details on that one soon.
