In Our Heads is the fifth studio album by British electronic music band Hot Chip, released in June 2012 via Domino Records.

In Our Heads is the first album released for the band’s new record label Domino and was produced by the band.

About the album, Alexis Taylor stated, "…I think "In Our Heads" was a bit speedier, and made with less pressure, but more fun – partly due to people in the band not having too many hang ups about how good the material was – we seemed to be happy with the songs we were writing and they came quickly – and partly due to the fact that we had been enjoying ourselves elsewhere, whether at home, or on tour, or recording with our other projects, or DJing.

 I think that is right about having a subtler confidence, but it may also be that we are a bit more accepted these days as we keep doing what we want, and gradually people stop saying ‘why’ to everything and each decision.

The songwriting developed quickly from songs that were dreamt ("Now There is Nothing"); songs that were written via email file sending (fully fleshed out instrumentals from Joe developing into songs with added percussion/chord changes and singing by me; e.g. "Flutes"); songs that we bashed out in collaborative writing sessions between Joe and myself ("Don’t Deny Your Heart", "How Do You Do?"); songs that one or the other of us wrote largely separately "‘These Chains’"– Joe/"Look At Where We Are"- Alexis); songs that a few of us in the room wrote more of: "Dark and Stormy", or to some extent "Let Me Be Him" (at least in chorus terms); or finally songs that were written after we completed the last album and which were still in our minds: "Always Been Your Love", "Doctor"..."

The album was released to positive reviews by music critics. Heather Phares of AllMusic viewed In Our Heads as one of Hot Chip's "…most confident, joyous, and danceable albums yet", as well as the band's "most direct album yet, delivering their quirks and grooves with bigger, broader strokes that don't feel dumbed down…”

The album reached #14 on the UK, #19 on the Australian and #62 on the US Billboard 200 Albums chart.

Check out the tracks:  Night & Day”; “How Do You Do?”; “Don’t Deny Your Heart”; “Flutes”; and “Let Me Be Him (Live)”.
