This is something fresh. Mixing dream pop with new wave elements and some My Bloody Valentine type vocals, Chromatics may have earned the album of the year award (or rather album of the week). This kind of music can come off boring live, but hyper intense on record. Either way, it's a good new sound. I'm very interested to see where Chromatics go after this. I'm always impressed just to hear something that doesn't completely suck these days.
