Yet another Hot Chip project? Sure why not. After last week’s Hot Chip’s collaboration with William Onyeabor, lead singer Alexis Taylor has announced a his second solo album coming Await Barbarians out on Domino in June. Judging by lead track ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’, the album will be a lot less dance-oriented than his work with HC and less upbeat than About Group.
Taylor played all of the isntruments himself with the exception of strings and Domino promise a ” more reflective side of his writing and singing” and a “brushed cymbal-led quiet and solitude”, with Taylor’s voice “rarely adorned by audible effects”.
