Rarely does watching a music video result in me feeling the need to take a cold shower, but such is the case with Atlas Genius’ “Back Seat.” When the video started on the close-up image of a car navigating the night streets, my mind made the connection “back seat” of a vehicle. I quickly realized that in the case of this video, the reference would have a lot less to do with roads and a lot more to do with rears, specifically the super sexy “back seats” of some super sexy women…and in some cases, their, er, front seats as well (check out the 2:00 mark).
The song is one of three tracks on Atlas Genius’s debut EP, Through The Glass, which was produced, engineered, and mixed by the band in their home studio. Like the song itself, the Gus Black-directed video is mesmerizing and just screams “Sex!” Definitely NSFW if your boss frowns upon naked women writhing on bedspreads, but totally safe for work if showing your boss said women might lead to a promotion.
Check it out below, and be on the lookout for the band’s full-length debut, set to release this fall.
