Finding information on Chromatics has been decently difficult.  They appear to only have a Facebook page and that’s all.  Either way, the four-piece electronic band from Portland has just created a cover masterpiece. If you call yourself a true indie/electronic music lover then without a doubt you know about New Order’s classic “Ceremony”.  The original still gets played through my speakers often and now Chromatics will take their place for a while.  Chromatics did a wonderful job covering this tune, maintaining the original guitar lick, a slight electronic tinge and with beautiful vocals from Chromatic’s Ruth Radelet.  Ida No from Glass Candy also gives us lead guitar on this track (via Pitchfork)!
