There is a nervous loping quality to “Mask”, Chromatics’ own (black) pyramid song if you may, that stands out immediately from the other tracks on their 2007 full-length album Night Drive. I can’t wait to hear the band approach this one onstage – the hounds of thorny guitars encircling the vintage dance beats, while shadowy keyboards work up a steady, sinister routine in the background. The ultimate nocturnally damaged sonic canvas to live out your wildest film-noir fantasies. – keith.
