With Free Energy
Like their forefathers Depeche Mode, Hot Chip is a British band combining traditional pop song structures with modern technology and underground dance beats. Over their first three albums, they’ve honed their sound into near-perfect electro-pop dance tunes like “Over and Over” while gaining an international following that’s long transcended cult status. On the eve of their fourth full-length release—“One Life Stand”—they’re on the verge of stepping into Depeche Mode’s sizable Doc Martens as the world’s next bona fide electronic rock superstars. Much of the album was previewed at this secret-ish show presented by MySpace Music. With Free Energy.
