Interview: Alexis Taylor (Of Hot Chip)

By Will Oliver, August 11th 2014

Alexis Taylor

Alexis Taylor is the soft spoken vocalist and frontman of Hot Chip, the London outfit that has made you dance and one point or another. This year he released a new solo album called Await Barbarians a gentle album made for private listening on your headphones (his words).

Late last month I had the pleasuring of speaking to Taylor over the phone a week after seeing him play a show at Rough Trade. We spoke about a variety of things, such as how the show went, his new album, how he balances so many projects, and of course, the new Hot Chip album that is in production.

Hot Chip

I’ll take new music from Hot Chip in any way I can get it. They have recorded a cover of William Onyeabor’s “Atomic Bomb” for a compilation of bands covering/remixing William Onyeabor tracks called WHAT?!: William Onyeabor Remixed. The compilation is a Record Store Day exclusive that David Byrne’s label Luaka Bop is releasing.

The cover is right in Hot Chip’s wheelhouse. Enjoy it below.

Hot Chip
never cease to amaze. Every time I see them seems to be better and better than the last. They’ve found a niche that lays in between the best worlds of dance-rock and electronica with a funky soul groove.

Call it what you want, because at the end of the day, they will leave you dancing and having a blast, while also sounded technically brilliant. Last year they stole the show at the Pitchfork Music Festival, and this year they were arguably the best show I saw on Friday. Hot Chip are a band you don’t want to miss live, they just know how to bring it. It was cool to hear new single “Dark & Stormy”, which is truly one of the better songs we’ve heard this year.

[new]: Hot Chip – Dark & Stormy

Hot Chip are back with a new single titled “Dark & Stormy.” Somehow the band always seem to find a way to release something new, always keeping busy. The single is a one off release for Domino that will come out on July 23. The b-side is a new version of “Look At Where We Are.”

“Dark & Stormy” does indeed feature a darker vibe from the Brits than normal, with their nerd-funk  dance vibes very much intact still as well. It’s something that’s both romantic and danceable. Hot Chip are one of the more reliable groups in the game at this point, so none of this should come as much of a surprise.

Hot Chip @ Roseland Ballroom (April 9, 2013)

By Will Oliver, April 10th 2013

Hot Chip seem to have grown as a band exponentially every time that I see them. Not even in terms of their band member count – which has definitely grown – but in scope. The crowds and venues just keep getting bigger and bigger. This makes sense, Hot Chip have a sound that attracts all kinds of music fans. They can just as easily bring down the house with huge dance vibes as they can rock out. They even have an emotional core that can devastate you just as equally. There’s not much that Hot Chip can’t do.

During the front end of the show they dominated us with an incredible consecutive run of songs (“One Life Stand” -> “Night & Day” -> “Flutes” -> “Over and Over”) that was simply ridiculous.

They finished off with “Shake A Fist”, “Boy From School” and “Ready For The Floor” which had the place going, and carried them to the encore. I didn’t know what else they had left after giving us so many goodies in the early stage of the set, but they finished off with a four song encore that included huge performances of “I Feel Better” and “Let Me Be Him.” It was magical.

I’ll admit to being somewhat skeptical that Hot Chip would fill in the rather large space of Roseland. But they did it, and they did it quite well.
