Hot Chip is the ideal blend of poppy, groovy EDM and dark, seductive instrumental rock. Main singer Alexis Taylor’s voice is mesmerizing, as is the band’s overall sound both live and recorded. Their tunes jive in a somewhat romantic manner, flowing as would a dream, unique yet somehow very familiar. Their performances as well as their recordings are bold and charming in their genre bending, with both a bumping beat and a grooving keyboard riff swaying the audience back and forth. Hot Chip will entice in a way similar to their live performance, and alongside opener Klangkarussell, the night is sure to get funky.
