Lyrics from FlutesHot Chip is an electro-dance band from London made up of Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, Al Doyle, Owen Clarke, and Felix Martin. The band came together in 2000, though its two most prominent members Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard, who also go by the titles Sophocles and Ulysses, have known each other since they were children. Hot Chip released their first album, Coming On Strong, on the label Moshi Moshi in 2004. The album which garnered favorable reviews was a tribute to American R&B and hip hop, also drawing influence from Taylor’s early fixation with Prince. Hot Chip have since released four more studio albums, moving to the label Domino Records after EMI was sold off. Their steady growth as a band as brought them accolades in the form of a Grammy Award nomination and recognition as one of the UK’s top electro outfits. Their most recent album, In Our Heads was released in 2012.
