Download Mayer Hawthorne’s new Impressions EP of cover songs to hear his smoky take on Chromeo’s “Don’t Turn The Lights On.” Says Mayer: “On the surface it’s an electro-funk, dance floor filler, but underneath is a brilliant love ballad with lyrics that reminded me of something from Tyrone Davis. Dave1 told me the song is about a guy who falls in love with a ghost, so I wanted my version to have an eerie, ghostly feel to it.”
This Friday (4/22) the Natural History Museum’s long-running One Step Beyond party series will feature a Chromeo DJ set and a live performance by Telephoned. Reunited and it feels so good!
Tickets are already sold out, but Telephoned are giving away guestlist slots on their Twitter. The generosity continues, as Sammy and Maggie also gifted the internets with a f-a-b-o-l-o-u-s new “cover up” that you can grab here.
