HOT CHIP Invite you to join their dancefloor-filling antics.
“The ground started shaking moments into a performance by Hot Chip, a geeky British band known for their transcendent electronic performances. Boots, heels, and sneakers pounded the floor as the audience erupted into electronica-tinged dance moves and fist-pumping like it was 1997. “ – Spin.com
What do Brains, Cactus Jack, an art school student, a librarian and a nerdy bloke with a dodgy moustache have in common? Not much. Give them keyboards, synthesizers, percussion and line them up on a stage, and you have the HOT CHIP live experience.
Secret Service and Village Sounds are proud to announce tasty English five-piece HOT CHIP will perform club shows in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne respectively, when they return to wow Australian audiences this August for the sold out Splendour In The Grass in Byron Bay. Making their first sojourn to the west, these performances are now your only chance to catch them live this tour. Tickets to these satellite shows go on sale 9 AM on FRIDAY, JUNE 8.
Constantly evolving and defying expectations with their quirky house-influenced beats and melodies, HOT CHIP is Alexis Taylor (vocals/keyboard), Joe Goddard (beat master/vocals), Owen Clarke (Keyboards/guitar), Felix Martin (drums / MPC), Al Do It (guitar). Their astounding ability to write cracking pop tunes such as the immaculate summer hit “Over and Over” from the equally brilliant breakthrough album The Warning saw them nominated for the coveted Mercury Music Prize in 2006.
“They are Prince-adoring, R&B-loving, two-step worshipping electro-funkers with a cheeky attitude… They have pulled off the trick of not taking things too seriously, yet still produce some seriously good music… There’s not many bands out there who can fuse rave-era beats, crowd roars, battling 303 drum patterns and swelling synths to make a coherent electrifying whole.” – NME
This month, DJ-Kicks: Hot Chip hits the shelves which features a mix of some of their favourite music by luminaries including Ray Charles, Black Devil Disco Club, New Order, Joe Jackson and Etta James. In keeping with DJ-Kicks custom, the group also contributed a new and exclusive track of their own called My Piano, to the album.
HOT CHIP: not just the critics’ choice, the people love them too! Their shows this August are sizing up to be this year’s, well HOT ticket.
