Watch Chromeo Bring The Funk For Their 'Tiny Desk Concert' Debut
Backed by a full band, Chromeo played tracks from their fifth album Head Over Heels for their Tiny Desk set.
If you’re missing some funk this Friday, Chromeo has got you covered. The duo made their Tiny Desk Concert debut recently and brought a full band for the occasion.
The 17-minute performance finds David Macklovitch (Dave 1) and Patrick Gemayel (P-Thugg) performing four tracks, three of which are from their fifth album Head Over Heels: “Count Me Out,” “Don’t Sleep,” and “Must’ve Been.” The fourth track is “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” from their 2014 album White Women.
The set is a treat to watch, considering the backing band is made up of Philadelphia musicians including percussionists Rashid Williams and Aaron Draper. Both Williams and Draper have played with the likes of John Legend, Jill Scott, The Roots, Adele, and Erykah Badu.
Speaking of Badu, the singer was on Tiny Desk a couple months ago where she performed Baduizm‘s “Rimshot” and Mama’s Gun‘s “Green Eyes.”
