Video Clip of The Week: Literature, “Kites”

Here at The Gig, we enjoy two things especially: those things being a jangly pop song accompanied by a psychedelic video. So it is that with Philadelphia-based quartet Literature we have a win-win situation!

I hate to say it, but Summer is (kind of) officially over at this point, so a great thing about “Kites” is that it extends the feeling of summer just a little longer with its chime-y guitars and dreamy vocals over engaging visuals of flowers and geometric designs washed together in a kaleidoscopic fashion. Trippy.

Literature — which is at least an original name, if not the most exciting in the world — recently released their sophomore album, Chorus via Slumberland Records available now on iTunes. Based on evidence presented here, I would imagine it is worth checking out. Enjoy!
