The band debuted a music video for the title track of this album last year, which used graphics inspired by early videogames and nostalgic images of urban life in Japan. The band also released a music video for the track “Spell,” which was accompanied with sensual visuals of an intimate couple. Band member Alexis Taylor also collaborated with the group Holy Fuck for the duo’s new single titled “Luxe.”
A Bath Full of Ecstasy, highlights the band’s signature upbeat synth pop style with solid production and rhythmic beats that blur the line between indie and dance music. The band’s style channels a variety of different samples and styles from retro sounds to more modern pop inspired instrumentals.
“Hot Chip focuses on their strengths and shows growth in song craft and production value. Their music is interesting, fun and at times genius. The nine-track album is consistent, focused and diverse,” mxdwn reviewer Joseph Shigematsu explained. “Everything is in place, the vocals are emotional and dynamic and A Bath Full of Ecstasy is truly a pleasure to spin.”
