Hot Chip – ‘Ends of the Earth’

square

 

 

Hot Chip, like any band, are prone to hits and misses. When they miss, they become unlistenable (to me anyway). But when they hit, they knock it out of the park. ‘Ends of the Earth’ is a great distillation of everything Hot Chip does well: funky beats, detached lyrics and anthem synths. There’s also a touch of The Knife, especially in the intro. I’m baffled why this wasn’t released as a single.
