MUSIC: Hot Chip celebrate ‘Bath’ record with Dublin gig

Hot hot hot!

HOT Chip, who release their electrifying seventh album, ‘A Bath Full of Ecstasy’, on June 21, will be live at The Olympia Theatre on Thursday, October 17.

Their third album for Domino, A Bath Full of Ecstasy is the group’s definitive release, crystallising the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalisations and pounding electronic pop rhythms.

Recorded in Paris and London, the album sees the group (Owen Clarke, Al Doyle, Joe Goddard, Felix Martin and Alexis Taylor) open up to a more adventurous and collaborative song-writing process.

Choosing to work with outside producers for the first time, Philippe Zdar, the French maestro who’s shaped the magic of Cassius and Phoenix, and Rodaidh McDonald, the Scot who’s collaborated with The XX, David Byrne and Sampha, among others, has brought about a brand new sound.

The band recently shared the first song from the record, ‘Hungry Child’. For six glorious minutes, Hot Chip fuse the uplifting soft pads and melodic keys of classic soulful house and the percussive swing of UK garage, full of sweet vocalisations and rhythmic snaps, to make an instant, club-ready hit. The video for ‘Hungry Child’ is directed by Saman Kesh and features Martin Starr and Milana Vayntrub. 

Having headlined BBC’s 6Music Festival, Hot Chip have been debuting new songs at intimate shows in the UK.

Their dates continue in Europe and North America before they reassert themselves as the ultimate festival band.
