Watch Hot Chip Drummer Pillow Person’s Candy-Colored, Totally Gross Video for “On Your Way”
Last year, Hot Chip drummer Sarah Jones released a couple of singles under her solo moniker, Pillow Person. Today, she’s shared a new video for “On Your Way,” a blippy pop banger bound for an underground dance floor. The video is, if anything, better: sculptural, textural, and surreal, posing specific but necessary aesthetic questions like: If that’s shaving cream, then why does it have the structural integrity of marshmallow? If that crusty yellow stuff is clay, then why is it oozing like mustard?
The “On Your Way” video was directed by Isaac Eastgate and art directed by pop-absurdism design team Rottingdean Bazaar. The single is available from Moshi Moshi; the video belongs in a contemporary art gallery. Watch below.
