LISTEN: Hot Chip ‘Dark & Stormy’
We’re very excited to share with you ‘Dark & Stormy’ – HOT CHIP‘s first recording since their fifth studio album In Our Heads that was released this exact time last year!
The track offers substance, and is sure to keep Hot Chip perched up on their reputable platform due to the fast-paced love and respect that this track has already gained.
A desolate key line tears open ‘Dark & Stormy’, which is looped over and over [and over]. Soon to be chaperoned by a supportive drum kit and steady bassline, this repetitive pattern builds confidence quickly throughout the track, transforming itself into a series of more metallic sounds from time to time, before deflating back to it’s initial paranoid presence. This leading melody meets many new faces along the way. emitting sounds that can be described as nothing better but what the song’s title so obviously suggests.
Include the vocals of both Hot Chip singers Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor to bind this track together and instantly you have an impressive comeback single from the English outfit.
Hot Chip‘s ‘Dark & Stormy’ is soon to be available as a 10″ single through Domino Records, as well as a digital bundle on 22nd July. You can preorder the vinyl single HERE.
