Think About Life - "Havin' My Baby" Video

The opening three tracks to Think About Life’s affirming Family are so jam-worthy that everything that follows is necessarily (and literally) an afterthought. Which is fine! Because things could only go one direction after the delirious early-album heights hit by “Havin’ My Baby,” a coursing dance-rock hybrid joyride that jacks a sped-up sample and tapes it to some exhilarating and fully (go) teeming new wave. For all that, delirious is the operative word for “Havin'”‘s Matt Wells and Josh Camerote-directed video video treatment, where an out-of-sorts church-going elder (played by Matt’s dad, John Wells) starts seeing puppets in the periphery, hijacks a sermon, and takes things in a Fatboy Slim/Spike Jonze direction with fancy footwork and unexpected lip-dubbage. Shot on location at the Grace Bible Church in Hollidaysburg, PA, the securing of which was probably made easier by the life-affirming track title, if not the life-affirming party vibes.


Family is out via Alien 8.
