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.

Daily electricity to load your batteries…

29 April 2021


Who: The project is the lovechild of Eszter Anna Baumann
and Davy Knobel based in The Netherlands. Their music

a catchy pop vibe.

Single: ELEANOR – debut single
About: “A ghost story of a forgotten woman telling her story in a forgotten sound.
Eleanor is the first single of Anna and Davy, and now they proudly present her to the
world. Their music captures a sacred process of inspiration and creativity, the true love
towards each other and towards music itself. They are ready to dive deep into their artistic realm to raise a pearl up to the surface: the metaphor of pure, unconditional love for music with untold stories of the ever lived icons.”

Score: This is grand pop splendor, greatly orchestrated and richly layered, with Eszter
Anna Baumann
‘s imposing vox elevating this remarkable piece to a majestic level. Think
of the powerful vocal range of Florence Welch and the adventuresome spirit of icon Kate Bush. Style, class and rapture. A victorious debut!
