Don't let the barriers you have built to define who you are blind you from appreciating the unfamiliar.

Hot Chip - I Feel Better

Hot Chip - I Feel Better

Hot Chip | MySpace Music Videos

Hot Chip is one of the electronic rock bands that prominently features vocals. While the lines are blurry, they are also considered dance-punk or disco-punk or indie-dance or synth-pop or synth-rock or any number of mixtures of those words.

They have gone from a small English band self-releasing albums in 2000 to a major label grammy-nominated artists. EMI might have signed them, but they still release records in the US on DFA. In case you are wondering, DFA is the biggest indie label for this modern mix of rock/punk/synth/electro/ect. They were one of the first and they are still the most biggest in the genre. LCD Soundsystem is the other big name on the label, but there are reams of others.

So, about the video...its is amazing. I actually like the video more than the song. The video starts out as if it is a boy band video with primped and toned metrosexuals doing group dance to a crowd of screaming girls. Then a bald Christ figure shows up and havoc ensues. I don't want to ruin the rest of the video, just make sure you watch the whole thing. You don't want to miss the laser and the floating head. Share/Bookmark
