Hot Chip "Melody Of Love"

Ahead of the June 21st release of their album new album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, Hot Chip have shared the video/single “Melody Of Love.” The album’s opening track, began life as a 12-minute instrumental track featuring a sample from the gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Under the eye of producer Rodaidh McDonald, the group turned it into a bombastic explosion of Technicolor pop. The song is about the importance of the transformative, non-verbal moment – ecstasy as personal happiness, but also of transcendence, of being outside oneself. “Melody Of Love” follows previous single “Hungry Child.”

A Bath Full Of Ecstasy finds lead vocalist Alexis Taylor stepping out of his comfort zone with his lyricism; though rooted in first person, here his storytelling becomes more bodily, and more open to new ideas. The record is a celebration of joy but recognizes the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. You can hear the pleasure Hot Chip had in creating this album and they want to pass on that feeling to the listener: it is time to get lost in A Bath Full Of Ecstasy.
