Hot Chip – “She Wolf” (Shakira Cover)
Hot Chip visited the Jo Whiley’ show on BBC Radio 1 on Saturday to do a live-in-the-studio version of “I Feel Better” and a cover of Shakira’s “She Wolf.” The “She Wolf” single was a step in an electro/disco direction for Shakira, so the Hot Chip cover feels pretty natural, except for Alexis Taylor’s little wolf cub howls. It really says something about Shakira, though, that her howls sound like a totally normal part of her vocal repertoire, and that she fit the word “lycanthropy” so well into this song. Scritti Politti’s Green Gartside played guitar with the band on both their song and the cover .
