After a lineup change, Jewel, one-half of iconoclastic Glass Candy
, joined Chromatics
and began working closely with Miller on a new, electronic sound. Soon after they added singer Ruth Radelet, as well as Nat Walker on drums and synthesizer, now fully complementing Miller's deftly minimalist guitars with dreamy vocals and atmospheric electronics. Their game-changing 2007 LP Night Drive
earned new fans and critical acclaim — Pitchfork called the transition “effortless” and the record “impressive.” Night Drive
heavily influenced Nicolas Winding Refn’s 2011 film Drive and the pulsating track “Tick Of The Clock
” powering the film’s famed opening sequence.
