Hot Chip Release Cameo-Filled ‘Night and Day’ Video
Indie dance outfit Hot Chip have taken the covers off their latest video for single ‘Night and Day.’ The spacey clip features dancing monks, flying spaceships, an egg-shaped god and more.
There are plenty of interesting appearances in the visual accompaniment for ‘Night and Day.’ Actor Terrance Stamp, best known as General Zod from the original ‘Superman’ film series, seems to be the ringleader of this weird collection of humans. Comedian/musician Reggie Watts and supermodel Lara Stone are piloting spaceships in an intergalactic quest to Earth.
Members of Hot Chip show up in their own music video as well. Vocalist Alexis Taylor leads the third group of monks in some funky dance moves to worship an egg-shaped deity. The video ends with Watts and Stone meeting as one, only to end in disaster.
Hot Chip will release their fifth studio album, entitled ‘In Our Heads,’ on June 12. The group plan to tour in support of the album with a handful of North American dates starting in July. That leg of the trek will launch on July 13 in Minneapolis, Minn.
The London synth lovers recently performed ‘Night and Day’ live during ‘Later… with Jools Holland.’ Watch video of their appearance on the late night BBC show here.
