Hot Chip released a DJ-Kicks compilation album in 2007, and the mix album A Bugged Out Mix by Hot Chip in 2009 on the Bugged Out label. In 2008, the band released an EP which included collaborations with Robert Wyatt. Wyatt sang and reworked versions of three tracks from Made in the Dark, and the Hot Chip with Robert Wyatt and Geese EP also included a remix by Geese, a string quartet based in London who have regularly contributed to Hot Chip's recordings. In 2009 he returned as the band's drummer for the One Life Stand tour and in 2012 moved to guitar, bass, percussion, backing vocals and synths. He features in the videos for "Night and Day" and "Don't Deny Your Heart" and regularly records with the band, featuring more prominently from the album In Our Heads onwards.

We once thought Hot Chip could walk on water – but half of the songs on this album sound like a band treading it instead. So what’s happened between their last long-player, 2008’s Made in the Dark, and this new collection? The intensely likeable, clever, visionary quintet are undoubtedly one of Britain's musical success stories of the last decade, and their Mercury-nominated 2006 outing The Warning can still take your breath away with its brilliance. But, of the ten tracks on this fourth album of electro-pop, five should have been left out on a Monday morning with the bins.

Hot Chip relish a good contradiction; they are better placed than most to mine the oppositions inherent to electronic pop. Dance music is about bodies; Hot Chip are a little more cerebral. Co-singer Alex Taylor in particular rocks geek chic to its specciest extreme. Even their name is a pun of sorts, involving computer memory and burnt fingers. But One Life Stand is a really great electronic album about love. Clubbing has always been more about pulling than avowals of affection like the deeply old-fashioned "Slush" – a waltz-time digital duet in which Hot Chip admit: "Now we are older/ There's more that we must d. But Hot Chip have effectively hitched the rhythms and textures more often attuned to lust to a higher emotional calling. One track, at the very least, stands shoulder to shoulder with "Over and Over", Hot Chip's breakout anthem.

Like clockwork, Hot Chip are set to release another album in their two year cycle, and One Life Stand can certainly serve as fitting company to the excellent The Warning. It seems that this time around, Hot Chip have again learned how to love melody, and have worked it in throughout the record, creating captivating hooks and little ear worms that you'll have stuck in your head for weeks, if not months. After a couple of initial tentative albums, Hot Chip broke out with its delicious 2006 album "The Warning", which contained several irresistible songs like "Over and Over", "Colours" and "I Was A Boy From School". Now comes the band's highly anticipated new album.
Don’t take my word for it, listen to the first two songs which display this point beautifully. Thieves In the Night establishes a strong point for the dance-pop extraordinaires to build upon. Brothers and Slush sound like Hot Chip wallowing in their misery, unable to produce anything near as exciting as the first half of the album. We have Love displays the band merely getting a bit annoying, and by Keep Quiet I’ve lost most of my interest.
