Album Review: Hot Chip – A Bath Full Of Ecstasy

Posted on 19 Jun 2019 at 9:53am

There was something a little bit off about Hot Chip when they first arrived: how to take a band who went on about monkeys with miniature cymbals and whose quirky gap year house was ready for the floor, providing, the cynics said, it was one with a chemistry department on it?

Even then though, the smart money – what else – was on the Londoners successfully escaping an era dominated by mawkish lads from Morecambe writing songs about bad drugs they’d never taken. Gleefully mixing art and wonk-heavy sonics for an audience tired of not going to the ball, their songs celebrated the durability of everyday love and held the kind of soul that came and sat next to you on the bus. Eventually, they became the Pet Shop Boys for the abstention generation.

Don’t worry about the title of their new album either: A Bath Full Of Ecstasy is overflowing with natural highs as opposed to mid-life crisis hedonism, lead Chippers Joe Goddard and Alexis Taylor preferring to avoid the sort of angst and recrimination about the current state of society that has embittered similarly veteran artists.
