Chromeo

After somehow graduating beyond novelty-act status with its first couple of white-hipsters-doing-dirty-funk-rap albums, Montreal’s kitschy electro-disco duo Chromeo is on the verge of another breakthrough. At Coachella last month, falsetto-loving singer David Macklovitch and his Oates-like partner Patrick Gemayel had swarms of California millennials dancing like they were auditioning for “Breakin’ 3.” Now, they’re touring to hype their first album with Atlantic Records, “White Women,” full of Pharrell-like happy dance-pop and featuring such guests as Solange Knowles and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.
