HOT CHIP

Everyone's favourite electro-pop imps, the stadium shaking, body moving, high-note hitting Hot Chip are back with a BRAND NEW ALBUM. Dripping in lyrical references to the halcyon days of rave and the sleek synth-funk they've perfected over the past fifteen years, "A Bath Full Of Ecstasy" is primed to make you dance, dream and catch more than a few feels.

Switching up their workflow to collaborate with outside producers from the outset, Hot Chip enlisted the dancefloor clout of Philippe Zdar (the French touch legend who's added club dynamics to Cat Power, Beastie Boys and Phoenix, and makes up one half of Cassius) and indie expert Rodaidh McDonald (famed for his work with The XX, Sampha and David Byrne). The result is the perfect combination of classic Hot Chip, the bold flavours of Zdar's ouvre and the emotional impact of McDonald's productions. 

The record is a celebration of joy but recognises the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. You can hear the pleasure Hot Chip had in creating this album and they want to pass on that feeling to the listener. It is time to get lost in "A Bath Full of Ecstasy".

"Made In The Dark" is the definitive Hot Chip record and could have been made by no other band. It would probably be easiest to say that "Made In The Dark" is faster and rockier than "The Warning", but that is only beginning to scratch the service. Within its 13 tracks there is both rhythmical chaos ("Shake A Fist", "Bendable Poseable"), soulful introspection ("We're Looking For A Lot Of Love", "Made In The Dark" and "In The Privacy Of Our Love"), oddball disco ("Hold On") and even contemporary widescreen pop ("Ready For The Floor", "One Pure Thought"). The songs are propulsive, repetitive, rhythmical, methodical, wonky, intimate, beautiful and uniquely Hot Chip.

FORMAT INFORMATION

2xCD/DVD Info: Limited CD/DVD package comes in deluxe embossed fold-out sleeve. Includes six video tracks recorded live at the Melt and Glastonbury festivals, and at the Electric ballroom in London.
