Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts, electronic act Hot Chip have moved the date of their Brisbane headline show to Wednesday 27 January. Tickets to all headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth are on sale now and moving quickly. These performances coincide with Hot Chip’s headline performance at the highly anticipated Melbourne-based boutique festival – Sugar Mountain.

Forming in 2000, London’s Hot Chip have had their finger on the pulse of international dance music for 15 years. Following a few years of self released EPs Hot Chip started generating international critical acclaim in 2006 following the release of their stunning self-produced album The Warning. Featuring the unforgettable nu-dance jam ‘Boy From School’ and unmistakably catchy ‘Over and Over’, these tracks are an example of Hot Chips staying power, having topped best of lists around the world.

‘The Warning is propulsion and power and punctuation rolled up into one, abandoning a lot of the graceful, delicate melodies of the debut for songs with more wallop… the results are golden.’
– Pitchfork 8.1/10

‘A fantastic collection of nu-dance’ – The Guardian

‘Imagine the Postal Service, but far more danceable and quirkily experimental. – The New York Times

Having set a precedent for high accolades with each successive release, Why Make Sense? (out now through Domino) has re-established Hot Chip as an act that remains at the forefront of electronic dance music. Singles ‘Huarache Lights’ and ‘Need You Now’, from Why Make Sense? weave their now trademark shadowy synths and kinetic beats with melancholy lyrics set to minimalist catchy electronic melodies.

‘Still romantic, still funkier than a bunch of pasty dudes from Putney have any right to be, still making it cool to dance even if you can’t dance for sh*t.’ – Pitchfork

‘Despite all the allusions, the songs aren’t trapped in revivalism. Part of Hot Chip’s charm has been its combination of intelligence and ingenuity with a self-conscious reserve.’ – The New York Times

‘Banger-free, perhaps, but gloriously avant garde and fiercely inventive.’ – The Guardian

Joining Hot Chip as special guests will be Empress Of and Australia’s own Touch Sensitive. Appearing at their Brisbane and Perth shows will be New York based, Honduran-American acclaimed singer-songwriter Empress Of. Not since 2013 have Hot Chip been to Australia – these highly anticipated performances are not to be missed! Secure your tickets now to see one of the most exciting and prolific electronic acts in the world.
