Hot Chip Release Free Download 'Burning Up'


Hot Chip have released a non-album track as an instant download for the special edition of forthcoming album Why Make Sense? To be released via Domino records.

‘Burning Up’ is a synth delight marauding between apathetic lyrics and a candy-pop lead line which dabbles in dream-pop and ends with a disco beat to sink your teeth in to. It’s classic Hot Chip providing a minimalist bounce with enough artistry to keep you interested. As free downloads go this one is a belter – the visuals aren’t too shabby either.
