Hot Chip - 'I Feel Better'

It's a fantastic single from a band that I've frequently disliked greatly, and the mother of all earworms. 'I Feel Better' by Hot Chip is nearly enough for me to turn around my opinion of a group that thanks to ubiquitous annoyance 'Over And Over' I've never had the time for. The video to this single is fantastic but unfortunately I can't embed it, so you'll have to go over to youtube to watch it.

There's not a lot else I can say, save for filling you in about how irritating and monotonous I found Hot Chip's previous singles, and how wonderful and huge I find 'I Feel Better'. Sure, it has some of the same keystones as the rest of their catalogue, but here the repetition accumulates synthesisers and swells into a glorious epic rather than being used as a device to make the song monotonously plod. There is something wrong with the general public when a song as instant, catchy and shinily produced as this isn't a hit. Shame on you general public!

Apologies for not writing more. I'm still fairly asleep, and it is Bank Holiday Monday
