Chromeo Leading By Example

23 Feb

Everyone has a different take on where electronic music is and what it truly has to offer. A lot of people don’t think it has the same impact of other genres, but others love it more than anything. Personally, I think it has lagged a bit behind other genres because of its accessibility. Anyone can make electronic music with a keyboard, drum machine and software. You can even make it in your bedroom. With that in mind, I think some great artists unfortunately get clumped in with the garbage that doesn’t even deserve 15 seconds in the spotlight.

Chromeo, on the other hand, is doing everything right. Not only does the lead singer play guitar to the electric tracks, but also he writes great songs with memorable melodies and doesn’t let the electronics take away from songwriting. The band uses the format to make what it has stronger. Now if you’re someone who completely hates electronics (maybe you are just that stubborn), I am sorry – you’re missing out on a lot of possibilities. If, however, you loved the eighties and want something that falls between the music you love and your guilty pleasures – this is exactly what you’re looking for.
