Hot Chip Imitate ’80s Video Games on Lyric Video for ‘Burning Up’
U.K. electronic outfit shares non-album cut before release of new LP 'Why Make Sense?'
U.K. danceniks Hot Chip have shared the lyric video for a new track, “Burning Up.” Though the thoughtful, Auto-Tuned slow jam arrives in advance of their sixth studio LP, Why Make Sense?, it’s actually on the fittingly titled Separate EP, which comes with an album pre-order. (To shake things up even more, Hot Chip will print the album in 501 different colors using “a unique and bespoke printing technique which has never been used before.”)
The video for “Burning Up” is a little more old-school: words scroll across the screen like an Atari video game from the ’80s, slowly blurring and shifting colors until sliding into black-and-white bars not unlike Why Make Sense?‘s official cover. Watch the clip above.
