Just when you think the British electronic band Hot Chip can’t get anymore addictive, they bedazzle listeners with Dark And Stormy, a magnetic new track that’s scheduled for a July 22 release on Domino Records. The track’s chorus is infused with a hypnotic melody to hum in the streets, office, shower and damn near everywhere for months on end.
Dark And Stormy is the first new Hot Chip recording since In Our Heads—the group’s acclaimed fifth studio album. Its B-side features an updated version of Look At Where We Are featuring Tori and Reiko Kudo of the Japanese folk-psych band Maher Shalal Hash Baz. According to Hot Chip, the Kudos have “revocalled the track in their native tongue.” Listen to “Dark And Stormy” below.
