Big Beat trailblazers The Chemical Brothers have been pumping out incredible sounds for the better part of a quarter century. And while their pop-culture influence has ebbed and flowed, the quality of their music has remained consistent throughout. With their new album ‘Born In The Echoes’ set to drop next month, the UK duo has released their third single, Under Neon Lights, a collaboration with American avant-garde artist St. Vincent.
‘Under Neon Lights’ is an old school trance-inspired warehouse banger with synth loops straight out of a haunted music box and St. Vincent’s ghostly vocals moaning, “Got no husband, got no wife…all I wants of you tonight.” The Chemical Brothers’ production–combined with Annie Clark’s vocals–results in pure, beautiful chaos and the accompanying video with its simple computer-generated geometric visuals is a perfect complement. Give it a watch right here, and keep an eye out for the full LP on July 17th.
