‘When’ Chromeo & Solange’s ‘Night Falls,’ Somebody’s Gettin’ Pregnant

If anyone were the modern-day successors to Hall & Oates's '80's hybrid of soul and pop, it would have to be Chromeo. The Montreal-based duo, consisting of Dave 1 and P-Thugg, have been known just as much for their creative and bizarre videos as they have been for their catchy hooks. The video for their "When The Night Falls" is no exception. Featuring everyone's favorite kid sister of the moment Solange Knowles (doing her best "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" Whitney Houston impression on the chorus), the duo finds that they've musically impregnated an insatiable (and well dressed) mob of female fans and are on the run like it's Night of the Living Dead. In the course of their escape, they encounter explosive pregnancies, a vocoder-ized talking baby, and even Dave 1 succumbs to the music's impregnating powers. In the end, it turns out it's really all just Dave 1's guilty dream about the responsibility he's been shirking. The When The Night Falls EP is available now on iTunes, and the duo will embark on the Night Falls North American tour starting September 14th in Dallas. As a general warning, I suggest all you ladies of SoulBounce keep your contraceptive of choice nearby as you watch the video. You know, just in case.
