As self-confessed Hot Chip obsessives, I suppose solo projects from the band are always likely to be given the benefit of the doubt by Sync. But there’s no doubt involved in determining that this is a great track from Joe Goddard.
Music Is The Answer – follow up to Lose Your Love released in December – is the latest from the guy who is best known as Alexis Taylor’s vocal counterpoint in Hot Chip, and yet his solo stuff sees him very much set out on his own with a sound that is Chip-esque at its core, but taken in an even more experimental direction. Certainly forthcoming album Electric Lines (out on 21 April) is going to be a must-hear, and his upcoming date at London’s Heaven on 4 May is one for the diary too.
