American trio The Library Is On Fire have released a simple, light-hearted video for their new track 'Fly On The Painting' which is taken from their upcoming album 'Halcyon and Surrounding Areas' out April 15th 2014.
The video features singer Steve Five getting well and truly drenched in different coloured liquid by apparent party dwellers, as well as getting covered in aerosol string, confetti and being slapped in the face with a cream pie while he merely sits there in a white T-shirt and assorted sunglasses. There's no serious to this visual, contrary to the noisy pop of the tune which drummer Cory Race has described as 'derelict pop'. With distorted and almost muffled vocals coupled with the heavy screech of guitars, there's a deep gloominess at the heart of the track while still remaining fun and catchy.
The track was written in a fleeting space of time by Five, who was bored whilst waiting for a painting to be collected from his employers art studio. Like much of upcoming album 'Halcyon and Surrounding Areas', there's a very clear influence from 80s and 90s pop here. The single follows their previous song release 'Red Flags' which came out in February.
