Video: Hot City x LOL Boys "Hot Boys"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Earlier this month, Hot City and LOL Boys joined forces on a new collaborative EP. Now, the all-star production team has rolled out a neon video for the record's lead track, "Hot Boys." Featuring brightly colored landscapes, nods to old-school racing videogames, bizarrely gender-neutral humanoid ravers, and a humorously menacing purple monster, the animated 3D clip is anything but dull. Furthermore, its clear nostalgia for '90s internet aesthetics and open embrace of surrealism pairs nicely with the song's upbeat vibes and acid-laden approach to the dancefloor. It's definitely a clip worth watching—repeatedly.
