About Hot Chip
It's a bit of a coincidence that Hot Chip's 2004 debut album was titled "Coming on Strong," because that's exactly how you could describe their emergence on the EM scene.
Hailing from London, their first EP "Mexico" was a mash-up of techno beats, acoustic guitar, piano and stellar vocals. It served to put the industry on notice that Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard were here to stay, and it was followed in 2002 by the "Sanfrandisco E-Pee," which transitioned Hot Chip to a bit of a more playful sound.
The big break the band was seeking came when it signed with N.Y.C. record label DFA in 2005, releasing the "Over and Over" EP and 2006's full-length "The Warning." By 2007 they were touring consistently, and also released a DJ-Kicks mix album. A short time later came the single "Ready for the Floor," which was the first single from the album "Made in the Dark."
Though Hot Chip was somewhat criticized for a mellower sound on 2010's "One Life Stand," it returned with a more uptempo, experimental "In Our Heads" in 2012.
Hot Chip has taken a bit of a break as late so that Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell could focus on the side project 2 Bears. The duo released their new album "The Night Is Young" on October 13 via Fatboy Slim's label Southern Fried. The LP follows 2012's "Be Strong" and sourced material from the duo's latest travels, including sessions in South Africa last summer where they recorded with local musicians in a studio run by BLK JKS' Tshepang Ramoba.
