About this event
Join us at Faith In Strangers on August 27th, a bank holiday Sunday special, as we welcome back Alexis Taylor to Margate.
Alexis, the mastermind behind iconic UK band Hot Chip, is journeying down to Margate for a special bank holiday party. Sign up now for early access to tickets!
Alexis, the architect of enduring indie anthems like ‘Over & Over’ and ‘Ready For The Floor’, will be bringing a broad spectrum of his unique music flavor. As a solo artist, he’s produced several outstanding albums, and his set will no doubt reflect his diverse talents. Expect an eclectic mix of party tunes, indie disco favorites, and of course, some of the best from Hot Chip’s repertoire.
There’s an intriguing paradox to Hot Chip, a captivating dichotomy between their vision and reality. Drawing inspiration from the Hip-Hop ideals showcased by MTV Cribs, they’ve managed to mold it into their unique context in Wandsworth, SE London. Instead of limiting themselves to a singular identity, Hot Chip embraces a multitude of influences — from Bill Callahan to Crystal Gayle — seamlessly merging them to create a sound that’s unmistakably their own.
Through their distinct aesthetic approach, Hot Chip references their admired artists in a uniquely compact manner. An array of influences — from Stevie Wonder to Will Oldham — can be found delicately woven into a single song, instead of dominating an entire album. Their music straddles a dynamic line between the polished production values of mainstream pop and a uniquely English inclination for authentic storytelling. Amidst this plethora of ideas, Hot Chip never loses its touch of humor, delivering their wit with a dash of deadpan.
Party with us on August 27th to experience the charm and charisma of Alexis, and bask in the eclectic soundscapes of Hot Chip, a band that is a testament to the harmony of juxtaposition. Experience firsthand their intoxicating mix of honest lyricism, engaging humor, and captivating beats that span across a diverse range of influences. With Alexis musical prowess at the helm, this night promises to be a grand celebration of music, camaraderie, and unforgettable moments.
