The band New Build was formed from the building blocks of three amazing bands including Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem and Planningtorock, as tweeted this week by Hot Chip. The details on the specific members however are still emerging. Started by Doyle and Felix Martin (Hot Chip), they have on board engineer Tom Hopkins who worked on Hot Chip’s One Life Stand.
Their newly released “Finding Reasons” features vocals from Planningtorock’s Janine Rostron. The track has a New Wave vibe, infused with Hot Chips classic electro/synth elements. Though at the end, the track turns reggae with some steel drums added to the mix.
New Build’s LP is slated for release in early 2012, while Hot Chip is expected to release a new album in mid-2012!
