Hot Chip ‘Freakout/Release’ 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 19th August.
Limited brown coloured vinyl.
Hot Chip present their eighth album, ‘Freakout/Release’, via Domino.
‘Freakout/Release’ is another dizzying high in a multi-decade career that’s seen Hot Chip continuing to innovate and develop a rich, resonant songcraft. And while they continue to operate at peak form, the album also feels like a new chapter for the group - a collection of flesh-and-blood songs that finds the band reaching into the darkness to emerge as a true creative unit, their gazes fixed positively on the future ahead.
The five piece - comprised of Owen Clarke, Al Doyle, Joe Goddard, Felix Martin and Alexis Taylor - wrote and recorded in the band’s newly minted Relax & Enjoy studio in East London, a creative space that Al Doyle put together before and during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fittingly, harnessing Hot Chip’s irreplicable live energy in a studio space was in the front of the band’s mind, as they found themselves particularly inspired by their cover of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ that’s become a setlist staple.
