24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE: HOT CHIP DO IT "NIGHT & DAY"
Hot Chip | 18/04/12
Grab your toothbrushes, because Hot Chip are going to be with you Night and Day. Yes, Night and Day (the first single from Hot Chip's forthcoming fifth LP, In Our Heads) is released on June 4th. The track is a solid gold chunk of of classic Hot Chip weird-ass superfunk disco, driven by a menacing yet supremely danceable rubberized bassline. It's the sound Prince would be making had he grown up just south of the Thames. It's Zapp not Zappa.
The single will be available on 12" and via digital download. It will come with a remix from the 2 Bears ft. Trim as well as an exclusive b-side track entitled "Jelly Babies".
Why not avail yourself of the throbbing disco sound of "Night and Day" right here?
