It seems like Joe Goddard is always busy, dipping his hands into numerous musical ventures including his mainstay Hot Chip to The 2 Bears to remixes and solo projects. Today, he released a brand new solo EP titled Taking Over, and it's pretty damn good. Before you dive in a grab it, we thought it would be best to introduce you with two of its four songs.
The first is "Step Together," which Goddard worked on with German producer Boris Dlugosch. It's a bouncy house track fitted with slick piano chords and Goddard's smooth vocal delivery. The second is "She Burns." It features the vocals of Mara Carlyle, focusing on her echoing tones while hi-hats and spaced-out synthesizers shimmer in the background. Stream the former below, while the latter is accompanied by some grim, funerary visuals.
The Taking Over EP is available to purchase now on iTunes and other avenues.
