Hot Chip launch new album at London show

Electro-poppers unveil 'Made In The Dark'

Hot Chip launched their new album ‘Made In The Dark’ at a sold-out London show last night (November 22).

The band played nine tracks from the LP, due in March next year. They included set opener and recent vinyl-only release ‘Shake A Fist’, the record’s title track and forthcoming single ‘Ready For The Floor’.

Speaking to NME.COM afterwards, frontman Alexis Taylor said he had enjoyed playing the new material, “but we had some technical difficulties. I hope nobody noticed”.

Hot Chip were watched by ‘The Mighty Boosh’ star Julian Barratt, who interviews the band’s Joe Goddard in this week’s issue of NME on UK newsstands now.

‘Shake A Fist’

‘Boy From School’

‘Hold On’

‘Out At The Pictures’


‘One Pure Thought’

‘Over & Over’
