hot chip are the kind of band that speak in code; and so when they say "laid back," you know they mean the band that sang "white horse," and when they say "joy in repetition," it's a reference to prince. indeed, hot chip, w/ an ep under their belt called down w/ prince, sound like a more muscular prince w/ dfa on production. it's probably everything the press had you believing har mar superstar was.
the bridge of the song--which sounds like pacman gobbling pellets, another point of reference--has a voice spitting out letters, like a human speak & spell. it goes :
K-I-S-S-I-N-G S-E-X-I-N-G C-A-S-I-O B-O-K-E Y-O-U M-E Ifor clairity and precision, it's right up there w/ "dance music sex romance" as a statement of purpose--though i've no clue what a "boke" is--and just about all you need to know about the band.
