Velvet Owl Single of the Week

Chromatics - Kill for Love

Remember that 80s revival thing that took place a couple of years ago? Headed up by La Roux and Ladyhawke, for a few months the airwaves were awash with electro pop reminiscent (to some of us at least) of those nights at the youth club disco, dancing to Kids in America by Kim Wilde while trying to not let anyone step on our pristine Puma G Vilas.  Although a couple of years late to the party, this Chromatics single offers an alternative take on the 80s - think less Now That's What I Call Music and more Factory Records Sampler - the stuff we listened to in our bedrooms as we tried to remove the muddy footprint from our trainers with a pencil rubber.
