Chromatics – Kill For Love 
Chromatics started in Portland a long time ago and had a noisy lo-fi punk sound. Then it ended. Then it came back with a hipper new-wave blend of rock and pop. Now it’s better than it was before. Kill For Love, the album, is a bit of a roller coaster, running through loops of excited dance-pop bliss at times, and then diving into slow, plodding tracks of depression. Kill For Love, the song, is a highlight — one of the more exciting moments on the album.
