Download: 2 Hearts and Chemicals, ‘Froid’ (featuring Guylaine Vivarat)


The electro-shoegaze of bi-coastal collaborators 2 Hearts and Chemicals is growing tentacles. Guitarist Eli Lhymn – the L.A. half of the band – recently rekindled a friendship with singer-bassist Guylaine Vivarat, known for her work in local bands such as Detective, Useless Keys and Tennis System. Their sweeping one-off “Froid” suggests a epic movie narrated by a French chanteuse, the Cocteau Twins refracted for 2012. 2 Hearts and Chemicals, meanwhile, have a guest-filled LP in the works for this summer.
