Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor Drops ‘Without A Crutch’
The video is grainy and holds a vintage styled vibe with a simple backdrop made interesting with flashing bulbs of sepia lights and the soft cooing of Taylor‘s vocals. He comes off looking demure and shy in a powder blue jumper and coke bottle glasses as he clutches his guitar and strums along to the lullaby like lyrics.
The beautiful simplicity of the clip allows the vocals to take centre stage and truly show off this quaint little ballad as something different than the Hot Chip days from Alexis Taylor. The video for ‘Without A Crutch’ is endearing, soothing, and nostalgic with just a hint of some kind of bittersweet sadness.
