Hot Chip Release New Single ‘Freakout/Release’

Hot Chip have released ‘Freakout/Release’, the title track from their forthomcing album, which is due out August 19 via Domino. It follows previous offerings ‘Eleanor’ and ‘Down’. Take a listen below.

“Freakout/Release is about pent-up energy and the need for release, and escape,” Alexis Taylor explained in a press release. “It’s also about making sense of music, and at times being plagued by the thing you focus on – music never leaves my head for a second, which is usually a good feeling, but it can feel claustrophobic at times too. It’s also about finding your place in relation to music and to performing. The riff should feel brutal and dumb and elemental and Joe was thinking about Seven Nation Army and the simplicity of that swinging from quiet to loud and back and forth.”
