Music Review – Hot Chip, Made in the Dark

Movmnt Magazine’s Music Review

 

Charmingly nerdy, and with a penchant for hip-hop, London-based electro pop group Hot Chip have made a career out of defying classification. With Made in the Dark, the group takes its hodgepodge tendencies to even greater heights. From R&B to electric guitar driven ballads, beat-heavy pop to unabashed dance music, Made in the Dark offers something for everyone. Once again, the connecting thread for the music is the oddball charm strung throughout the album’s thirteen songs. It’s the same dorky lovability that made Hot Chip such a thrilling pop act back in 2004 with their debut, Coming on Strong. What’s different this time is their confidence in beats, and willingness to make a dance anthem if they so please. And if tracks like “Shake a Fist,” “Ready for the Floor,” and “Bendable Poseable” are any hint, Hot Chip has gotten quite good at making its listeners shake their stuff on the dance floor.
