Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor teams up with renowned steel pan player Fimber Bravo on the latest single “The Way We Were” from his forthcoming full-length effort, Con-Fusion which Moshi Moshi Records will release on February 11th, 2013. The single will drop on January 28th. As you’ll hear, the song is a forlorn contemplation of the modern condition – that loss of direction that most people commonly feel.
Bravo’s playing can be at times ethereal and dreamy while emphasizing Taylor’s phrasing at points. It’s an odd pairing that feels completely organic and true.
