Chrome Hoof by Rachael Horner.

Disco-Doom-Funk pioneers Chrome Hoof have been busy bees of late what with releasing a fourth LP and re-shuffling their lineup. Now fronted by Shingai Shoniwa (of Noisettes fame) the free-wheeling 11 piece have just put out a new video to lead single Knopheria which is as glam as their sequin-clad singer. Think extravagant disco funk mayhem for the 21st century, all fronted by the magnificent vocals of Shingai Shoniwa.
