Hot Chip

One Pure Thought

After months of near-constant rotation, the Chip’s special recent album, ‘Made In The Dark’, seems to have slithered off the radar a touch. ‘One Pure Thought’ will put them back on to the middle of the ol’ submarine detector, though. While it’s not quite ‘Ready For The Floor’, it’s another wedge of house-pop brilliance from the Putney digi-lords. Al Doyle’s crunch-riff slices like cheese-wire, Alexis Taylor’s puppy-dog croon wraps the whole thing up in a coat of hands-in-the-air euphoria, and we all suddenly wish we were ripped to the nipples on a dancefloor the size of Iceland. Scorching.
