Hot Hot Heat – Kid Who Stays In The Picture | Music Video
After Hot Hot Heat announced the release of their final, self titled EP, the group have now shared the music video for their lead track “Kid Who Stays In The Picture” which premiered via Noisey back in April. The Vancouver based rock band have now had the visuals for the track premiered via NME. The song was written by frontman Steve Bays about “the importance of fighting to stay young at heart and holding on to your innocence for as long as you can, is classic Hot Hot Heat and serves as a fitting epitaph for one of Canada’s most influential bands of the 21st century”.
Hot Hot Heat is due to be released via Kaw-Liga Records on Friday, June 24 and is one that has been described as pop hook-heavy as it is edgy and unpredictable. The album was written between 2011 and 2014, and looks back in inspiration from their first two albums. Of the album, frontman Bays says:
“We wanted it to feel cohesive and representative of the aesthetic we were into at that point. We wanted it to feel like it was all the same album even though it had been written over several years. The songs are the 10 songs we were the most excited about in the moment. The idea behind the album was: If you want to try and do something great, it can only be when the inspiration hits”.
