Engine Summer Release New Music Video For “Hot Glue”

Chicago Post-punk trio Engine Summer has returned with the release of their new nostalgic driven visuals for “Hot Glue.” Watch here

About the song and video, the band comments “We typically try to make videos that are a blend between minimal and strange/unique. We had a pretty loose concept on this and just wanted to be true to us in the essence of backyard boozing on a summer weekend before slugging our cabooses to the local pub. We worked with our friend and creative director, Judith Priest, whom has directed some videos of ours in the past. It’s always a pleasure working together, they bring an unbiased voice to our ideas and help meld the aesthetics we all pitch individually. The idea of multiple personas throughout the video riffs off the hey days of our youth, sniffing glue on half constructed skyscapers outside Louisville, KY. We’ve cleaned our act up, be keep the music grainy!”

Judith Priest, the director for the video, adds “The Engine guys brought a simple, but wacky idea to the table. I loved creating with them, because they’re so open to experimentation. It’s cool what you can do with a camera, a tripod, and a nice afternoon. Also, I hate that panda costume, it smells like canned Spaghetti. “
