Al Doyle (Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem) and Felix Martin (Hot Chip) joined with studio engineer Tom Hopkins for their British electronic pop collaboration New Build. The three met while they were all working at Warp Records and started recording, combining the styles of their former groups in the project's slinky, synthesized grooves. For their first outings, Doyle played the role of the singer. However, he and Hopkins turned to a host of other collaborators, including vocalist Janine Rostron (aka Planningtorock) and LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney. After releasing two limited-edition 12" records, New Build released their first album, Yesterday Was Lived and Lost, in 2012. ~ Jason Lymangrover
