Seek and Hide brings Hot Chip to The
Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, Al Doyle, Owen Clarke and Felix Martin are the men behind this electropop Casiotone-hop group. They formed in 2000 and self–released records until they were signed in 2003. They released their debut album, "Coming on Strong," later stating that they wanted it to sound like a home-made version of the Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique."
In 2006 they released their second album, “The Warning” to great acclaim. The album was short-listed for The Mercury Prize. Two singles were released from the album and both “Over and Over” and “Boy from School” were well received. In that same year Hot Chip were hired to provide music for the in-game stereo within the Sims.
Hot Chip make use of toy trumpets and kazoos to get their sound just right, but no laptops and no backing tracks.
Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor has provocatively boasted that he is "like Stevie Wonder, but can see things."
Recent festival appearances include Dour Festival, Glastonbury, Sónar, Benicassim, Electric Picnic, Bestival, Lovebox, the Reading and Leeds Festivals, the Summer Sundae festival and the Big Day Out and Splendor In The Grass (2007) in Australia. They released a DJ Kicks compilation in 2007, which included a new song called "My Piano", also released as a 12".
The band will release their third studio album, Made in the Dark, on February 4 2008. The first release out of it was "Shake a Fist" which was released as a limited one-sided 12" in September 2007, the first single will be "Ready For The Floor" in January 2008.
