Released: 12th May 2008.
The quirky electro-soul outfit behind dancefloor hits "Over And Over" and February's Top 10 breakthrough "Ready For The Floor" deliver another track that's determined to get your feet moving. Musically and rhythmically more complex than previous Hot Chip fare, "One Pure Thought" may not be the most obvious choice for a single, as it lacks a strong hook. It's still a fine tune from the guys, and the contrast between the melodic refrain and the more lower-sung verses demonstrate a diversity vocal-wise. Watch out for the brief Macarena reference!
Hot Chip continue to bring their boundary-defying dance/pop to our eardrums, and this one is no exception. Single number two from "Made In The Dark", "One Pure Thought" is perhaps not as immediate as "Ready For The Floor". However, it is another fine illustration of the paradoxical beauty of Alexis Taylor's melancholically detached vocals mixed with insanely incessant drum/glockenspiel beats.
