SHORT BIOGRAPHY AND ALBUM INFO:
Made In The Dark is Hot Chip’s third full length release and the follow up to their critically acclaimed album The Warning. This new installment which is released in the US on February 5 shows Hot Chip at its best; wonderfully quirky, clever, soulful and poppy. The bands sound has evolved towards a wilder, heavier electronics, though still coupled with a signature pop aesthetic. The stand out tracks “Shake A Fist”, “Ready For The Floor” and “One Pure Thought” add pure, unadulterated head rush pop into the mix. Made In The Dark also shows that the band is equally at home creating songs of intimacy and melancholy as they were dance floor-fillers.
The band come together with Owen Clarke's signature guitar and keyboard riffs, Al Doyle's high caliber musicianship and Felix Martin's programming skills combined with the considerable talents of Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor in a way making the songs even more propulsive, repetitive, rhythmical, methodical, wonky, intimate and beautiful than before.The hipsters who found and love Hot Chip will still be lured in by their originality and inventiveness, whereas the undeniable infectiousness and catchiness of their music should bring them a wider audience.
