Described by The Guardian as “the greatest British pop group of their generation”, audio adventure addicts Hot Chip will make their triumphant return to Australia in 2020, locking in some huge party shows across Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as they immerse themselves in the warm praise surrounding their latest album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy.
Also in the country headlining Victoria’s Golden Plains and Wollongong’s Farmer and the Owl Festivals, the band will be ably supported on all sideshow dates (excluding Canberra) by Melbourne funk synthesist Harvey Sutherland (LIVE), himself in the midst of a globetrotting odyssey as he spruiks his latest banger ‘Something In The Water’ and a brand new studio band.
Arriving with a reputation for sonic wizardry cultivated through nearly two decades of marvellously consistent output, Hot Chip have always had an ability to charm all who stand before them.
A Bath Full of Ecstasy, their seventh studio album, builds on this reputation as it racks up some of the best reviews of their career. Singles such as ‘Hungry Child’ and ‘Melody of Love’ crystallise a celebrated sound as the five-piece bridge a sense of euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies and inspired vocal transmissions.
