Night Drive: IV
Critical Mass
Label: Italians Do It Better

by SPIN Staff

Since 2002, Chromatics' Adam Miller has pared down his noisy punk band to a dance-pop skeleton, while adding singer Ruth Radelet and Glass Candy guitarist/producer Johnny Jewel for the band's fourth full-length. But who's to argue when their waifish sound -- haunted synths, ice-pick drum machines, and chilly chanteuse vocals -- is so en vogue? Conceiving the album as the soundtrack to an imaginary movie, the trio emulate Italodisco godfather Giorgio Moroder and prog-soundtrack spooks Goblin, with an electro cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" serving as the numbed emotional climax.
