Chromeo’s ‘fancy footwork’ opening doors

Posted September 18th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

So “Needy Girl” wasn’t just an underground one-hit wonder after all. This Montreal synth-funk duo has more to offer than slick catchy joke throwbacks. Its latest record for Vice, Fancy Footwork, has inspired all kinds of people to fight for a piece of the action. The Beastie Boys have offered up a few opening slots on their current tour, so Chromeo will be exposed to upwards of 12,000 fans per show. And even more exciting is the news that their idols Hall & Oates have asked the guys to collaborate with them on their new record. And if things still couldn’t get any better, Chromeo is set to make it’s first national TV appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in mid-October. Hey, and Paris Hilton is a fan, so they must be doing something right.

Stream the video for Fancy Footowrk’s first single, “Tenderoni”, here.
