In the midst of wrapping up the last few dates of a brief summer tour, Hot Chip stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform with The Roots’ resident percussionist ?uestlove.
They picked “Don’t Deny Your Heart,” a 70’s-inspired dance jam that sounded even funkier with double-duty drum parts, especially when that extended percussion break hits at the end.
“Don’t Deny Your Heart” comes off of Hot Chip’s fifth album, In Our Heads, which came out on June 12. Multi-instrumentalist Al Doyle talked to us about the difficulties of adapting their new songs to the road back in June. By the looks of this performance, it looks like they’re doing just fine.
Check out a video of their performance below.
