London electro-synth quintet Hot Chip has just released seventh studio album, “A Bath Full of Ecstasy”, to critical acclaim.
The band built a steady reputation since forming in 2000, and by 2006 had second album “The Warning” with its groove-classic ‘Over and Over’ nominated for the Mercury Prize. But follow-up “Made in the Dark” and especially single ‘Ready for the Floor’ was when Hot Chip really took off and garnered their firs Grammy nomination.
Some reviewers have noted the apt title of “A Bath Full of Ecstasy”, saying the record had “both heart and soul” and that the band has “seldom sounded as youthful and carefree”.
Live performances at festivals over the summer had fans and critics raving alike, so this sounds like a perfect show for a festive end-of-year blow out.
