Hot Chip will release their fifth album, In Our Heads, this June. The self-described electro-romantics have been busy with various other projects (New Build, The 2 Bears, etc) since 2010’s One Life Stand, and it seems the time apart has reinvigorated the band.
They’ve always crafted an awkwardly charming melange of synthpop, R&B and dance music, but new single “Night And Day” is beyond anything they’ve done before. With its taut percussion, symphony of synths, butch bassline and pitch-shifted vocals, this is at once incredibly weird and instantly approachable:
Look for the single June 4th on Domino with a remix from 2 Bears featuring Trim and an exclusive b-side “Jelly Babies.”
