Hot Chip is back with a new one-off single, "Dark and Stormy", to be released July 22.

The solid five-minute tune pulses with a driving dance beat as expected from the UK indie pop band, with enough electronic blips and squiggles to keep things interesting. Harmonized vocals explain how “we made our own love, nobody helped us” before calling out a smooth mating call of vowels. It’s the first song since last year’s album, In Our Heads, also recorded with Mark Ralph at Club Ralph studio in London.
  
The band will be busy this summer together and with separate DJ gigs, which includes a stop August 2 at Lollapalooza in Chicago, the only U.S. date however. Tour dates here.
