Hot Chip: An Electronic Breakthrough Danielle Nielsen July 10, 2012 Goings-On The English electronic band Hot Chip are set to play a couple local shows, the first of which is at Prospect Park Bandshell on July 18. The shows come at a perfect time, as Hot Chip recently released their new album, In Our Heads, on June 12. After listening to some of the album, I can hear that their music encompasses stylistic themes found in ‘80s electronic dance music. Being that the band is not afraid to push the limits in their experimentation, they keep each track fresh and different from the others by layering the synthesizer with the fugelhorn, steel pans, bass, drums, and guitar. Hot Chip will also be at Terminal 5 on July 20 and Philly’s Electric Factory on July 21.
