BACK IN PRINT ON 180-GRAM COSMIC CLEAR DIPPED IN BLOOD RED TRANSPARENT (TWO TONE) VINYL!!! The ever-popular Night Drive release, now expanded to fifteen tracks. "... the transformation of Chromatics has been so effortless that it's still easy to be wowed by the results. But listeners who are only familiar with the band's forays into shambling punk will certainly be surprised by Night Drive's assured songwriting (which would wow even if the band had been chasing this narcotic Eurodisco sound for years) and how it wrings ravishment out of electro moves that should be long-drained of their charms."—Pitchfork. The lost side of the album is dark and abstract. Opening with the almost funerial "Shining Violence." Where detuned analog synths collide & struggle to hang onto a fading melody. Followed by the sleeper hit, "Circled Sun," and the Vangelis inspired reflection of life's duality in "The Gemini." Looking into a broken mirror, RUTH is more vulnerable than ever with the bare bones bass & vocal of "Bell." "Night Drive" closes with an arpeggiated musical refrain from the beginning of Side One. "Acelerator" reinterprates elements of "Night Drive's" chord progression while leaning heavily on the gear shift. As painted lines in the road begin to strobe, Chromatics propels full speed ahead into an uncertain future. Includes a lyric sheet insert. Includes the track “Tick of the Clock” from the film Drive.
