Alexis Taylor: “Beautiful Thing” Video

Directed by Edwin Burdis.

Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor returns with a new solo album, entitled “Beautiful Thing”, which follows last year’s “Listen With(out) Piano” reinterpretation album and 2016’s “Piano” LP. His fourth solo record represents the first time Alexis Taylor has made a solo album with a producer, that producer being Tim Goldsworthy, co-founder of Mo Wax and DFA Recordings and member of UNKLE.

In his own words: “I made this album with Tim Goldsworthy – my first time working on solo music with a producer. I am so happy with the results – it feels like quite a departure to me, and we really had some fun making it, with some new technology as well as instruments we created just for this record. Whilst primarily made on my own with Tim, other guest musicians include Neil Hagerty, Susumu Mukai, and Emma Smith, and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip produced one track too. I am very excited for everyone to get to hear the LP in April.”

Today, Alexis Taylor has share the video for the album’s title track and the track that kick-started the recording process with Goldsworthy. With “Beautiful Thing”, he combines experimental, clattering noises with crazed, disco lavishness and bug-eyed acid house momentum to create something giddy and glorious. The video is a suitably compelling counterpart.

The album “Beautiful Thing” arrives on April 20th on Domino.
