Chromeo are currently in the standings for best album title of 2014. The album I’m speaking of is White Women, and its contents matter much more than its title. Chromeo’s music is made for more than just Caucasian females to enjoy. All races and genders are welcomed, encouraged in fact, to groove to the electronic, discoesque, funk pop, music of Chromeo.

Upon initial listen, you can hear a variety influences from Hall & Oates to Daft Punk. Singer/guitar player Dave 1 lays down stanky funk and R&B riffs, whilst singing in a very Wang Chung “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” manner. Seriously, everything about Chromeo screams the 80’s: their fucking album is named White Women. What part of that doesn’t sound like a Culture Club? P-Thugg’s synths are so light and sweet, that this music begs to be danced to. So Bonnaroo? You wanna dance?
