Cocktail Inspires Hot Chip Song [Video]
Hot Chip's fifth album, In Our Heads, will be released on June 12. Newly signed to Domino Records, the latest full-length by the London-based digi-funker features their trademark blend of synthtastic electro, house, funk, soul, and R&B fueled by smart, often poignant lyrics. A few hours before their DJ set at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City, we caught up with Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard and Owen Clarke and found out how the new album came about and what keeps things hot in Hot Chip's world (you'll have to wait til next month to read the full story).
In the exclusive video below, Joe Goddard shares the story about how a cocktail discovered by the band during a recent tour influenced the upcoming track "Dark and Stormy."
