Tuned In: Hot Chip Won’t “Don’t Deny Your Heart” On Fallon

by (@zaragolden)

London’s Hot Chip dropped in on Jimmy Fallon last night to dispense a hit of synth and a dance break to late night watchers. Recently drawn forth once more for the release of In Our Heads, the deep thinking dance fiends performed “Don’t Deny Your Heart” with house band the Roots and a mess of instruments and equipment. Alexis Taylor led the unapologetic 80′s jam, pleading that you “don’t deny your heart, don’t destroy your heart (say yes).” Hot Chip have made a name for themselves by using the dance floor’s dark corners to explore those in their mind. You know, like this. But here they beg otherwise, suggesting that “You’ll see, we take fun seriously.” And — with jingling synth, disco keys, and a Questlove led drum break — that they do.
