Off the back of their fifth full-length LP, In Our Heads, Hot Chip are back. The London-based group, who, since 2004’s debut Coming On Strong, have been producing R’n’B-influenced electronica, are highly regarded for their live shows packed with winners like Over and Over, Ready for the Floor and One Life Stand. For this tour, the band are being joined by New Young Pony Club’s drummer/vocalist Sarah Jones. Support comes from Disclosure, who are making a name for themselves via their recent production work and live sets. We like the glitchy bass of their Jessie Ware remix.
