Hot Chip unveil brilliant video for “Bath Full Of Ecstasy”

Upcoming worldwide tour includes Melkweg on Dec 2nd

Following the release of their fantastic new album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy in June, Hot Chip have spent the summer delighting festival audiences across the globe with their multi-coloured electronic pop rhythms. As the five-piece embark on their tour, they are pleased to unveil the ‘game-review’ video for “Bath Full Of Ecstasy”

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 colour, and bringing back joy, with the help of the Bubblebath Fairy, a Microphone and some friendly strangers.”
