The sound of a crowd and the inaugural rhythm provide the gateway into Hot Chip’s fifth full-length, In Our Heads. Layer upon layer of drums and synths teleport you through the history of the universe. Don’t reach for the barf bag as you spiral through the space-time continuum.
“Motion Sickness” exhibits the band’s innate ability to create music that pours emotion and danceability. The rest of the album follows suit. If you’re already a fan, let this new one transport you. I found myself two-stepping on the deck of a pirate ship sailing through an ocean of nostalgia.
Remember when people thought the world was round…Remember when we both first felt the world is sound?”
If this is your first time, don’t be scared. Let your body do the thinking.
