Best Songs of 2012: Chromatics - "These Streets Will Never Look the Same"

Best Songs of 2012

These Streets Will Never Look the Same // Chromatics

If you're looking for a sequel to the excellent Drive soundtrack, Kill For Love is your best bet. Chromatics were Initially penned to provide the movie's entire score, but Refn decided  a variety of artists would be more effective. They still provided the creepy, anxious "Tick of the Clock" for the film's opening scene. Chromatics mixes 70's/80's new wave and modern day reverby electronica, giving them a sound that epitomizes Drive-style noir. "These Streets Will Never Look the Same" is the highlight, an epic, 8-minute long auto-tuned masterpiece.
