Few occasions can tempt me to leave my cosy lair on a miserable January evening, and fewer still can inspire me to don impractical footwear; and yet, two weeks ago I found myself on the other side of town, balancing atop my (admittedly tame) heels, ankle deep in snow. What rallied my spirits and jolted my core strength? In a word: Chromeo. The electro-duo exploded out of Montreal five years ago and their newest album, Business Casual, was released last fall. Tracks like “The Right Type”, “When the Night Falls” and “Don’t Walk Away” are bang-on, disco-fabulous; and is there a woman in the world who can resist the powers of the “Night by Night” video? The real-life act was pure fun from the palpable beats to the epic light effects and the falling confetti. Nothing tops a night of full-fledged dance, dance, dancing.
