Boomkat Product Review:
*Includes DFA Mix* Managing to be arty but without the arsehole element, Hot Chip (our tip for the Mercury!) release their new single 'Colours' and it's another fine slice of pop/dance/indie that can't help but get you throwing some shapes. Taking a similar approach to last single 'Boy From School', the Chip have taken a thudding electro heart and pumped it full of indie melancholy - resulting in a striking image that is as vibrant as it is solipsistic. Given a thorough once over by Murphy et al, the DFA mix doesn't let a cow-bell get within sniffing distance; preferring instead to lather it up in cold water synths for a double-take that wrings even more emotion from the bruised vocals. Chip shop!
