The band recently stopped by the Interface to showcase another side of its talent with a mellowed-out, non-electronic set. 'And I Was a Boy From School' is a Hot Chip classic that is as happy and bouncy as their reputation. When broken down, the song shows the band's songwriting depth.

McCaughan transformation sounds natural, fitting it seamlessly into his catalog of music.
