Head Over Heels

Album Review: Head Over Heels by Chromeo (8/10)

Like most Chromeo’s releases over the past decade, songs from their new Head Over Heels are deeply rooted in Minneapolis funk, dance-pop and nu-disco. Nevertheless, this release marks the first time the Canadian duo has collaborated with rappers for studio recordings. Many of the tracks include moderate narration from west coast rap legend DJ Quik, while the funky basslines from the electro-funk love song “Don’t Sleep” features French Montana and Stefflon Don. Most sensational is “Right Back Home To You,” as its neo-soul groove reveals the band’s sensitive side and the splendid vocal range of lead singer Dave 1.
