Listen: Hot Chip - 'Flutes'
In Our Heads, the forthcoming album from beautiful electronic artisans Hot Chip (head here for full track-listings), will drop on June 11th via Domino, just in time for us to learn every warm synth, every heavenly a cappella and every sumptuous breakdown for festival season.
The follow-up to 2010′s breakthrough album “One Life Stand” is produced by Hot Chip themselves with Mark Ralph; Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard and co describe it as "bursting with dynamic floor fillers, euphoric earworms and verbose synth-fuelled love songs". Lovely words.
A new track, 'Flutes', was posted online today; the quality of the recording is pretty awful (unless Hot Chip have done a massive career u-turn, and traversed across some dramatic, suicidal lo-fi plains) - and the video may well make you sick. But it's a glimpse all the same, and the first single to be released from the album does sound promising.
For a better quality version, you'll have to wait until tonight where the Annie Mac-sitting-in-for-Zane Lowe Show on Radio 1 will be premiering it.
Purchase and listen
UK Electro Pop band Hot Chip normally balances an unusual mix of the sublime with the ridiculous, and their brand new video for the single I Feel Better continues this trend.

I Feel Better is directed by Peter Serafinowicz and is off the new album One Life Stand out now. [read more]
