Hot Chip Share Visual For Fictional Video Game

Hot Chip share new video for "Bathtub Full Of Ecstasy"
Hot Chip "Bathtub Full Of Ecstasy"

Hot Chip have had a tremendously busy summer, playing shows in Europe. As the group gear up for North American dates, they have given fans another taste of their music with a video for “Bath Full Of Ecstasy.” The title-track is off their current release, now out via Domino Records.

The band say about the new video: “Oliver Payne (Safecrackers) is a British born, Los Angeles-based visual artist, video and film-maker, friend of the band, and collaborator. His artwork was used on two of Alexis’ album sleeves and he is also a huge supporter and fan of Hot Chip. Oliver came up with the idea to make a video based around a fictional computer game called ‘Bath Full of Ecstasy’, in the Hot Chip series, from Japan, circa 1988. The video consists of a Youtube-style review and demonstration of the game, which features each band member on their path to save the cursed kingdom, aiming to return melody and color, and bringing back joy, with the help of the Bubblebath Fairy, a Microphone and some friendly strangers.”
