Video of the Moment #1887: Hot Chip

By on Saturday, 15th August 2015 at 6:00 pm

Electronic dance stalwarts Hot Chip have a new promo video out for ‘Starting Right’, an absurdly catchy song from their current album ‘Why Make Sense?’ Just as absurd is watching a woman lip sync to Alexis Taylor’s falsetto in a club. Is this video even necessary? Not really, but it’s a unique vehicle for an otherwise exemplary song. And it’s Saturday night, it’s time to dance, and let’s face it, who needs an excuse for a Hot Chip video. Am I right?

Catch Hot Chip on tour in the UK in October. For more on Hot Chip on TGTF, head here.

Electro-pop quintet Hot Chip have announced a new run of headline dates in the UK for October including London’s Brixton Academy on the 22nd of October. The new live dates follow Hot Chip’s already sold out UK dates in May, which coincide with their new album ‘Why Make Sense?’, due for release on the 18th of May on Domino Records. Along with the live dates announcement, Hot Chip have also released a limited edition white label 12” featuring remixes of ‘Need You Now’ from Percussions (Kieran Hebden) and ‘Huarache Lights’ from band member Joe Goddard.

The band’s scheduled summer festival appearances include Glastonbury, T in the Park and Green Man. A full listing of Hot Chip’s worldwide live dates can be found on the band’s Web site.

Tickets for the following shows will be available for general sale starting Friday the 24th of April at 10 AM.

Hot Chip kind of fell off our radar after Joe Goddard went off to do The 2 Bears and their last album, ‘In Our Heads’, which came out in 2012. On the 18th of May, they’re releasing their sixth studio album, ‘Why Make Sense?’ on Domino Records, and now they’ve released the promo video for ‘Need You Now’, the second taster to the album released to the wild (the first being ‘Huarache Lights’, the song you will get for instant download if you preorder the album now). So does Alexis Taylor have a clone or what? Watch the video below and find out.
