Back from the depths of hibernation, Hot Chip has a new song & video to accompany their new forthcoming album. It’s slow panning shots of barely lit speaker cones that slowly come into being as LED-like pattern displays. Simple, effective stuff.
It sounds less warm and organic than their previous few albums, but it’s still got all those interesting sounds that make Hot Chip atypical and mesmerizing. The quick vocal sample is a new look for them, but overall, it feels familiar and easy. It’s good to have them back.
