Overview

When thinking of Hot Chip, wonky dancefloor movers like "Ready for the Floor" spring to mind. But on One Life Stand, they don't sound ready for the floor -- they sound ready to settle down. This is immediately apparent on "Thieves in the Night"; despite its four-on-the-floor pulse and careening synths, Alexis Taylor's yearning is palpable when he sings "happiness is what we all want." That urge drives most of these meditations on accepting that you only have one life to live, so you should find someone you love and live it with her or him. This intimacy is an unusual move after Made in the Dark brought Hot Chip so much acclaim, but it also shows they're in it for the long haul.
