Watch Hot Chip release new ‘game-review’ video for ‘Bath Full of Ecstasy’

Hot Chip release new 'game-review' video for 'Bath Full of Ecstasy'

It’s the title track from June’s seventh studio album.

Following the release of ‘Bath Full of Ecstasy’ earlier this year, Hot Chip are sharing the new ‘game-review’ inspired video for the title track.

Talking on the vid, the group say: “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 colour, and bringing back joy, with the help of the Bubblebath Fairy, a Microphone and some friendly strangers.”
