Our selection of great hip hop and rap shows coming to Ireland this summer 2019.
A Bath Full of Ecstasy, Hot Chip’s seventh album, out 21 June, is the group’s definitive release, crystallising the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalisations and pounding electronic pop rhythms.
This autumn, Hot Chip will embark on their biggest ever headline tours in the UK, Europe and North America with an Irish show in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Thursday 17 October.
Watch the video for the first song from the record, ‘Hungry Child’.
Recorded in Paris and London, the album sees the group open up to a more adventurous and collaborative song-writing process, working with outside producers for the first time: Philippe Zdar (Cassius and Phoenix) and Rodaidh McDonald (The XX, David Byrne and Sampha) among others. I don’t know about you guys, but we’re excited to hear the full record…roll on 21 June when we can get lost in A Bath Full of Ecstasy.
