The collective talents of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle and Owen Clarke have provided a consistently stellar output which continues to evolve with a deceptive effortlessness. While their lexicon of influences includes a diverse mix of soul, R&B, gospel, Detroit House, disco and funk, Hot Chip have created a uniquely identifiable sound. Since 2004, they’ve released a string of ambitious and creatively bold albums of soulful, lyrical and melodic electronic pop.
Their impressive debut Coming On Strong was followed in 2006 by the brilliantly buoyant The Warning, which earned the band a prestigious Mercury Music Prize nomination. 2008’s Made In The Dark spawned an international mega hit in “Ready For The Floor”, which picked up a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Dance Recording’. With In Our Heads, an unadultered delight of an album bursting with dynamic floor fillers, euphoric earworms and verbose synth-fuelled love songs, Hot Chip cement their position as the world’s most talented electro-romantics. In Our Heads is their fifth album and was released in June.
