Alexis Taylor

Thu 12—Sat 14 Oct

Melbourne Recital Centre


The frontman of electropop royalty Hot Chip sets aside the synths for a heartstring-strumming evening with a deeply personal bent.

The death of a close friend was the inspiration behind Taylor's solo album of last year, Piano. Comprising original works along with stripped-back versions of songs by Hot Chip and Taylor's side project About Group, the album is a tender, affecting recital for piano and voice, and a reminder that behind the musical pyrotechnics is a songwriter of rare ability. Join Taylor for a sensitive and soulful session on the keys in Melbourne Recital Centre's intimate Salon.

An album that is unlike anything he’s ever done.

His most straightforward and surprisingly personal effort.
