One of the most distinctive and innovative bands combining dance music and indie in the past 15 years, Hot Chip are returning to Good Room on December 26. As DJs Hot Chip brings the energy of the live show to the decks, bringing together all their influences from funk and disco to techno and house to make us dance.
2015 has been a big year for the Londoners, releasing both an album and an EP this year. 'Why Make Sense?' found them reuniting with In Our Heads producer Mark Ralph and exploring sounds ranging from disco to '90s R&B to post-punk. Their four track EP ‘Dancing In the Dark’ was released last month with a psychadelic version of the Springsteen classic and reworkings of other tracks.
