You probably know Alexis Taylor best as the bespectacled front man of the superb indietronic group Hot Chip. Did you know that he’s also in a band called About Group who specialise in silky smooth jazz and soft-rock? No, neither did we! The aptly named, laid back single ‘Don’t Worry’ is taken from the band’s second LP Start And Complete which was released in April earlier this year courtesy of Domino Records. The band also includes Charles Hayward (This Heat, Camberwell Now, Monkey Puzzle Trio, Clear Frame), John Coxon (Spring Heel Jack, Spiritualized) and Pat Thomas (has played with Derek Bailey, Tony Oxley, Jimmy Carl Black and Eugene Chadbourne amongst countless others).
The entire of Start And Complete was recorded in a single day at Abbey Road Studios and exemplifies the band’s laid back approach to making music. If you want to see them play live, they are set to appear that this year’s Field Day Festival in London on August 6th.
