Hot Chip have shared the first taste from their upcoming new album, In Our Heads. Flutes‘s six-plus minutes are simultaneously sprawling and elegant. The song marks a distinct evolution for the band, and they seem pretty pleased with their work; “It’s a more ambitious song than other things we’ve done in the past. I worked on it a lot to make sure it’s constantly developing in an unusual way,” said Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard.

The track came packaged as a dizzying in-studio sneak peak. I couldn’t personally watch the spinning video for the entire 7 minutes without feeling like Lucille Two, but nevertheless, you should check out the clip below. In Our Heads is out June 12.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
