Seems as if there haven’t been too many changes for Hot Chip since their move from James Murphy‘s DFA Records to Domino Record Co: the band setup is still the same, their music is still floor-friendly, and the promotion of new music is still viral.
Just as DFA and The Rapture previewed their first single ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ on a turntable, Hot Chip just premiered their new single ‘Flutes’ in video form, showing flicks from the recording studio.
‘Flutes’ is the first track off their upcoming album In Our Heads, produced by Hot Chip themselves and Mark Ralph in London, out on Domino on June 11th. ‘Flutes’ is a straightforward electro-pop-meets-rave-gem, which may not sound too muscley in this YouTube clip below, but is much more bold and deep in the final version (we had the chance to preview this :-p ).
In case you can’t wait for Hot Chip’s fifth album, we’d recommend you to tune into tonight’s Radio Sessions – Electronic Beats on FluxFM, where Joe Goddard will be talking about his side project The 2 Bears as well as playing a dj set. Our show starts at 10pm GMT+1, find more information here, listen to the FluxFM live stream here.
