By way of Portland, Oregon, Chromatics have spent the last decade finding their trademark synthpop, post-punk sound. The current lineup features singer Ruth Radelet, guitarist Adam Miller, drummer Nat Walker, and producer and multi-instrumentalist Johnny Jewel. Today marks the release of their fourth studio album, Kill for Love.

The second single from the album is a cover of Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black).”  The song is the bookend piece to the live 1979 Neil Young and Crazy Horse album Rust Never Sleeps. The original video is filmed in Gemini Vision and is directed by Alberto Rossini for the Italians Do It Better record label. Watch the lo-fi video below and head over to iTunes to pick-up Kill for Love.
