Ah, White Women. The title alone makes Chromeo’s forthcoming LP one of my most eagerly anticipated of 2014. Sure, Chromeo sounds like they have one foot still firmly stuck in 1984, but that retro charm is part of their allure. It’s worked for them so far, and if “Come Alive” is any indication, it’ll continue working for the foreseeable future.
This time around they’ve enlisted the help of fellow funkateer Toro y Moi on the vocals. Chaz Bundick’s own projects have headed towards the more psychedelic side recently, and while that’s good and all (Anything in Return was one of my favorite records last year), hearing him lend his vocals to something as deliciously funky as “Come Alive” is a treat.
I would be willing to bet that this song is what the inside of a discoball sounds like. On repeat listens, I’m pretty sure I can feel my hair start to spontaneously jheri curl. Suddenly, I feel like I should trade my car in for a mint Chrysler LeBaron.
If Daft Punk officially made funk cool again last year, then White Women seriously has a chance to make it genuinely fun again too.
