Hot Chip Unleash Music Video For "Eleanor"

London electronic/dance band Hot Chip have unleashed the video for “Eleanor“.

The song is part of our current playlist and features on their recent album ‘A Bath Full Of Ecstasy‘, which came out in August via Domino Records. Get your copy here.

Speaking about it, Alexis Taylor said:

“Eleanor is about the world smashing into you, waves crashing into you, all-encompassing pain, and how you have to walk through it, the verses are about separation when families are divided against their will, it’s about strong friends. It’s also about Samuel Beckett giving Andre the Giant lifts to school, and about how Beckett must have learned a lot from Andre’s wisdom.”

Director Alice Kong added:

“The music video tells the tale of our main character “Eleanor” who, after a series of unfortunate events, hits a pole in front of an eye glass shop that will… open her eyes, she then takes control of her environment and twists everything to her advantage by literally sculpting the clay world she lives in. By hand-picking every detail from a brick’s colour to a poster on a wall we were able to sneak in some easter eggs, I hope the viewers will have fun spotting!”
