Hot Chip have a new music video for their cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing In The Dark" which also includes lyrics from LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends." Check it out above on YouTube.
As you'll see, the music video here begins with some weird and funny '80s videos that tie together with the general themes of the Springsteen and LCD Soundsystem songs about going out and connecting with people. After about a minute, it segues into Hot Chip's recording and footage of the band in concert. Musically, this is a seriously uptempo take on Springsteen's classic song which was the first single released from his 1984 Born in the U.S.A. album. The connection to "All My Friends," which was on LCD's 2007 album Sound Of Silver, works nicely in the realm of post-disco electronic rock.
