Hot Chip - Spell

 

Last Friday, Hot Chip released A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, their brilliant seventh album and the group’s definitive release, crystallizing the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colorful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalizations and pounding electronic pop rhythms.

Ahead of their show at Glastonbury this weekend – where they headline the Park Stage on Saturday – the band have shared a video for album track “Spell."

Having originally started life as a track for Katy Perry (Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard contributed to her 2017 album Witness), “Spell” showcases some of the more experimental vocal production found on A Bath Full of Ecstasy. Taylor’s vocals are manipulated to be playful and free, without obfuscating the words; harking to Prince’s gender-bending infectious lust.
