Our take

by Angus

Now seven albums into a career as the self–styled kings of UK indie soultronica, Hot Chip are beginning to sound like they can push these albums out in their sleep, when really that effortlessness actually speaks to their incredible work ethic. Whilst their past few albums all inhabited their own particular celebratory atmospheres, A Bath Full of Ecstasy sounds like the culmination of all their work thus far. Celebratory, concerning love and bathed in lush synths and Alexis Taylor’s unmistakeable falsetto.

It’s notable that the album was the last to bear Phillipe Zdar’s name in its production credits, with the French house legend’s tragic death occurring just days before the album was due for international release. It’s a fitting finale for the producer, and one that he would be extremely proud of.
