Press info: Freakout/Release is another dizzying high in a multi-decade career that’s
seen Hot Chip continuing to innovate and develop a rich, resonant songcraft. And while they continue to operate at peak form, the album also feels like a new chapter for the group – a collection of flesh-and-blood songs that finds the band reaching into the darkness to emerge
as a true creative unit, their gazes fixed positively on the future ahead. The album features Canadian rapper Cadence Weapon, British DJ and musician Lou Hayter and production work from Soulwax.

MOJO Mag: “A mix of pulsing, oven-ready bangers and darker reflections, Freakout/Release exudes the confidence of a band operating at its giddy peak.” Score: 4/5.

TUTV: Hot Chip do what they do best, making records with tickling tunes, sugary synth ditties, whistle-along melodies, funky beats, but this time also moody lullabies for moody moments in these moody times. Summer isn’t over yet as long as you spin this mixed emotions Freakout/Release melting pot at your forthcoming cocktail gatherings.
