Album To Check Out: Hot Chip – In Our Heads

Hot Chip, the UK-based electronic dance band have been around for almost a decade now. Yet they still show no signs of slowing down or letting go of the fun. Ten years have not stopped Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor or the rest of the crew from creating infectious music for the masses to dance to.

That’s not to say Hot Chip haven’t grown up. While the beat is still strong and the music catchy, themes of love, life, and adulthood began to emerge in their songs from their excellent prior album, One Life Stand.

In Our Heads, the group’s fifth studio album, continues this trend. It’s all sounds great though. And don’t worry, Hot Chip are still big kids at heart and still know how to party. Their songs still are self-aware and contain a sense of self-humor. And they are still making goofy dance music and are laughing about it.

Check out the videos for the dizzying single Flutes and the feverish Night & Day embedded below.

Hot Chip – In Our Heads comes out 6/12 via Domino (order here)
