Don't Deny Your HeartEveryone's favourite electro pioneers Hot Chip have unveiled details of their next single - the frivolous, 80s-aping floorfiller 'Don't Deny Your Heart'.

'Don't Deny Your Heart', as performed on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel recently (above), is the third single to be taken from their much-lauded, fifth full-length 'In Our Heads'.

The 12" vinyl release will feature a remix by German techno producer Justus Könche, as well as a JD Twitch Optimo remix of 'Flutes', and can be pre-ordered via Domino.

Next week, Hot Chip are scheduled to play a sold out show at Brixton Academy on Friday 19th October - which will see the band supported by Mercury Prize-nominated Scots Django Django. Due to popular demand, a second date has been added on Thursday 18th October, with tickets still available via Gigs and Tours.

'Don't Deny Your Heart' is released on 26th November 2012 by Domino.

Here is the official video for new Django Django single Hail Bop and all we can say is much like the band themselves, its pretty original.

The track will be released on the 13th of August and features on their critically acclaimed self titled LP that dropped at the beginning of the year.

Created and directed by Daniel Swan the video for Hail Bop sees the band in rather abstract surroundings. Vinnie Neff Django singer and guitarist seems to be pushing around some kind of bubble like nebula while the rest of the band partake in casually cryptic activities in the computer generated landscape. The open plan imagined building is like something out of Vice City with the Miami palm trees and we're not really sure what to make of the metallic snake like growth that weaves around the landscape.

Scottish quartet Django Django were seen at this years Field Day as well as The Great Escape and are currently on a sold out tour of the UK. The band also featured in a recent slot on Later With Jools Holland, the only way is up for these lot - just hopefully not up those almost never ending stairs!

For their new video pop-rock band Django Django have released this artist stop motion effort and we're absolutely loving it.

The video accompanies their next single, Default and pays homage to their time at art school in Edinburgh. It was filmed by director Dan Brereton who printed more than 4,000 frames that were then hand painted by the bands drummer and leader David Maclean and the results are rather cool indeed. Check it out above.

Waveforms the new single released on the 17th October, from East London band Django Django is released by Because music.

It comes after a whole year of the band beavering away on their LP, the return is welcome with this single bringing a constantly shifting mixture of smooth harmonies and convulsive beats.

The long awaited album is due next year.
