Adorned with an infectious chorus and a modern disco flare, Hot Chip cranks up the synths and adds extra punch to give “Think About Things” a dancefloor-ready spin. “Think About Things” is funky, cool and nostalgic, with Daði Freyr’s hollow voice giving the single its subdued charm. The track flourishes as Daði Freyr builds stacked harmonies and Hot Chip captivates listeners with a brilliant guitar line that bursts into an all out electronic tune.
DaðI Freyr writes, “Getting Hot Chip to remix my song was a dream that I didn’t ever see becoming a possibility until a few weeks ago. The remix is awesome! It’s so surreal to hear their sound on my song. Hot Chip has had a huge influence on me as an artist, I became a superfan when they released ‘One Life Stand’ in 2010. They are one of the few bands I have listened to consistently for a decade!”
