Here’s what critics have said of their sold-out live shows this past April:
“…and made their dance-pop feel spontaneous and organic and warm thanks to touches like the steel drums on ‘One Night Stand.’” – SPIN.com
“With wobbly electronic rhythms and a command of the drippy, semi-ironic disco ballad, Hot Chip plays wistful but still snarky dance music.” – New York Times
“Subtle vocal interplay between singers Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard lent the tracks a sense of heart that only enhanced the frenetic percussion and synthetic accoutrements.” – ChicaoTribune.com
“Hot Chip already had thousands of festival goers bouncing to their electro-pop rhythms when the appealingly nerdy British band launched into ‘I Feel Better,’ a song with a chorus so perfect for the time and place—Coachella just after nightfall—that a lovely moment got even more joyful.” – OrangeCountyRegister.com
“Hot Chip could be the MacGyver of electro pop. Give them a maraca, a rubber band and a Swiss army knife, and the group will give you a dance-floor hit.” –WashingtonPost.com
“With a set that clocked in at nearly an hour, plus a three-song encore, Hot Chip brought the TLA to life.” – Philly.com
“Despite the somber overtones on One Life Stand, the songs came off live with a compelling energy, prompting the venue to dance and swell at every chance.” – Philly.com
“Hot Chip delivered exactly what we wanted; they took their most beloved songs from all four of their albums to create a setlist that could easily be used as a tracklist for their ‘best of’ album. – Chicagoist.com
