Ha, get this, Hot Chip will have their music playing during the introductory at the Olympics for the ping-pong games. So what better way of getting their name out there as much as possible by releasing a new music video just soon after the Olympics has started.
Yes, you read it correctly, there will in fact be a Coachella at Sea. Two cruises are scheduled to sail across the ocean with a lineup of bands/DJs to accompany this voyage, one to The Bahamas (3 days), and the other to Jamaica (4 days). With an eclectic lineup that all will enjoy, this is due to be one of the most epic concerts known to man. Some people say “cruises aren’t for them”, or “cruises are so boring”, well if you can afford this party of all parties, I would reconsider these assumptions, because this could and may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yes, I believe (unless this becomes an annual event), that seeing such an amazing concert out on the open ocean would be a once in a lifetime experience. They’ve got Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip, and James Murphy, as well as El-P and Killer Mike, who just released R.A.P. Music (Killer Mike‘s new album, produced by El-P), one of the best albums this year… so you know you’re in for a treat once the S.S. Coachella sets sail… and my guess, but since you will be on a boat, you’re bound to see some of the artists in person, because they don’t have anywhere else to go before and after they play their set… just sayin’. See above poster for more artists that will be on the ship, and keep an eye out for more surprises to be added to the lineup in the near future.
S.S. Coachella Dates:
Hot Chip doesn’t know the meaning of a dull video, they’re always going above and beyond when it come to the production of their music videos. “Look At Where We Are”, directed by Danny Perez, tells the story about a man and his model robot creation. Watch the new video from their latest album In Our Heads, which is out now.
Hot Chip will be releasing their new album In Our Heads, June 12, which should be pretty upbeat and entertaining, from what we’ve heard already. Hoping for more videos like this one from Peter Serafinowicz, as he did their “I Feel Better” video as well a couple of years ago. Even though the song title is not the most original, the video for “Night & Day” is, watch it here.
