Today, Chromeo unveils the surreal and kinetic video for their latest single, “(I Don’t Need A) New Girl.” Directed by Spencer Ford and produced by Weston Freas, the video captures the essence of Chromeo’s signature style, with Dave 1 and P-Thugg immersed in a world of cars, legs, and keyboards.
The release of “(I Don’t Need A) New Girl” marks the completion of a cohesive trilogy of singles for Chromeo. The first installment, “Replacements,” featuring the iconic artist La Roux, received high praise for its indie sleaze vibes and infectious danceability. The track made its debut during Chromeo’s performance at Coachella, where La Roux surprised audiences with a live collaboration.
Following “Replacements,” Chromeo released “Words With You,” a track hailed by Stereogum as their favorite creation from the Canadian synth-funk duo. The song’s catchy hooks and irresistible groove caught the attention of Taco Bell, leading to its inclusion in an international ad campaign.
To celebrate the release of their new music, Chromeo will embark on the FUNK YOURSELF tour this fall. This marks their first headline tour in over four years, and fans can expect energetic performances and a visual spectacle. The tour includes dates at renowned venues such as Brooklyn Steel in New York and the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto. Additionally, Chromeo will be performing at festivals like Austin City Limits and Portola.
One of the tour’s highlights is a massive co-headline show in Los Angeles with the talented Purple Disco Machine. This collaboration promises to be a memorable night filled with electrifying funk and infectious beats.
Chromeo’s recent appearance at Coachella further solidified their status as musical innovators. The band’s performance received glowing reviews from Rolling Stone, who described it as a preview of Chromeo going bigger, bolder, and chrome-ier than ever before.
