Hot Chip Goes 1978 Atari In New Video ‘Burning Up’

Hot Chip released the lyric video to their song ‘Burning Up.’ The 70’s styled, Atari looking video was directed by Joe Mortimer.

There are five words slipped into the middle of “Night and Day” – the hyper-infectious, propulsive track that comes halfway through Hot Chip’s fifth album – that in many ways sum up what’s In Our Heads. Somewhere between the fizzing percussion and the relentless and addictive bassline, a processed voice intones the line, “I like Zapp not Zappa”.
