How Do You Do is the new single from Hot Chip, the second track taken from their recent, critically acclaimed album, In Our Heads. Released on 10th September on 12” and via digital download How Do You Do is an effortlessly and infectiously joyful electro-pop stomp. The 12” will feature some choice remixes from the likes of Todd Terje, Ossie, Micky Moonlight and James Zabiela.
The accompanying video was filmed both in London and LA by Rollo Jackson and is linked to below.

Hot Chip’s have announced details of the intimate gig they’re due to play as part of a partnership with Songkick and Detourjam on Sunday October 7th. After offering up three towns the band had never played in before, they have confirmed that they will play the Quarterhouse in Folkestone. Although voting was neck and neck at first, a huge amount of votes were cast in the last couple of days by fans eager to get the autumn tour to kick off on the Kent coast. The Songkick gig will now be the first date on their recently-announced October UK tour and is by far the most intimate venue that they’ll play this year.
In other, London 2012 based news, Hot Chip have also been busy scoring the introductory music for the Olympics table tennis competition. More news and links when we have them!
