Hot Chip lives again; releases “Why Make Sense?” details, “Huarache Lights” video

Hot Chip: "Why Make Sense"

Hot Chip: “Why Make Sense”

This week, Hot Chip released info on their upcoming album, “Why Make Sense?” as well as the video for “Huarache Lights,” also on the new album. The last time the British group released music was the excellent “In Our Heads,” which brought us “How Do You Do?” and the funk-blast “Night & Day” in 2012.

According to a story on Pitchfork, if you pre-order “Why Make Sense,” you can also get Hot Chip’s “Separate,” a four-track EP of outtakes from the band’s latest recording sessions. So it’s a win-win all over for Hot Chip fans.


Check out “Huarache Lights”: It’s classic Hot Chip, but with an added techno/disco twist and the group’s silky vocals. Look for more surprises from the group on their sixth album, set for release May 18 on Domino.
