It’s unclear which good deed we did to deserve this, but Hot Chip has gone and blessed us with a stupendous cover of Bruce Springsteen’s feel-good classic, “Dancing in the Dark.” But then, something magical happens, as the song seamlessly morphs into a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s euphoric “All My Friends,” both songs that Hot Chip are known to cover live. Hot Chip’s versions of each of these all-timers manage to remain faithful to the originals—upholding their spirit and their stickiness—while imbuing them with the band’s signature dance-pop sound. And if that wasn’t enough, it comes packaged in a delightfully retro and lo-fi video, which you can watch above. Yay for us.
