  • Lucky Girl - Fazerdaze
    Here’s a perfect burst of swooning, happy-sad bedroom guitar-pop sunshine from New Zealand’s Fazerdaze (aka Amelia Murray), taken from her beautiful debut LP Morningside, out in May 2017 via the legendary Flying Nun Records. Amelia tells us about recording the bittersweet daydream “Lucky Girl” in the dark and solitary space in which she was living at the time: “I wrot...
  • Surf - Tommy Cash
    Tommy Cash is no stranger to explicit videos, as those of you who've witnessed Winaloto can attest to - and his latest for 'Surf' is no exception. Remember Vanya Heymann and Gal Muggia's amazing VFX collage for Coldplay? Where the band became part of the landscape? Well picture that but much more sexual and you're sort of close. Plus there's a heap of scenes that look...
  • God In Chicago - Craig Finn
    As soon as Craig Finn sets his scene, describing a mother finding her dead son and his sister finding a stash of drugs, “God in Chicago” marks a different strategy for the former the Hold Steady frontman. He doesn’t bark the lyrics, nor does he sing them. Instead, he simply speaks the words over a forlorn piano theme, with the tone and intimacy of a story related grav...

    Simon Ryninks' video for folk singer-songwriter and actor Johnny Flynn presents a young woman's yearning to escape her grinding existence in London for green fields and rocky coastlines with an effective visual device, cutting betwen identical shots of her in the wildly different places.

  • Anyways - Varsity Week
    On the debut 2017 release by LA based alternative band Varsity Week, gigantic, pop hooks collide with a tidal wave of soul and the results are unforgettable. Produced by Jim Kaufman (Night Riots, Beware of Darkness, Emery) and AWOLNATION’s Kenny Carkeet, the band’s first single, "Anyways" is at once smart, catchy and wears its heart on its sleeve. Equal parts 90’s alt...

  • One Thousand Times - James Vincent Mcmorrow
    James Vincent McMorrow comes to the realisation that fascism has gone too damn far when his audience falls victim to its grasp in Bob Gallagher's video for One Thousand Times. What starts off as a normal-looking performance video quickly gets stranger as a fascist dictator and his SWAT team decide to storm the place, carry everybody off and have a nice time for themse...
  • Shotgun Mouthwash - High Contrast
    High Contrast's Lincoln Barrett falls foul of an unsympathetic audience in Chris Turner (aka Favourite Colour: Black)'s video for Shotgun Mouthwash – which features on the new T2 Trainspotting soundtrack.

Three years later, the band performed three consecutive shows at Ma...
  • Blood Hunters - Andrew Combs
    The song Blood Hunters opens with Combs’ soothingly gorgeous vocals on haunting echo and spare electric guitar that crescendos into a fierce, Seattle-riffed fury. The musical gambit removes it even further away from the constraints of traditional country to forge a more experimental, rock-forward take on folk in the vein of Kevin Morby, Angel Olsen, Cass McCombs or ev...
  • We Dance To Remember - Sundncr
    Brand new indie pop artist from Byron Bay Australia. Sundncr brings you Sunny Vibes & High Fives! Some dance to remember, some dance to forget. We Dance to Remember....
  • To Build A House - Cosima
    23-year-old South Londoner Cosima makes gloomy, post-midnight pop – the kind that sounds best with the lights off, or maybe after a good cry. She packs big ambition, too, having recently put out a mixtape that doubles up as an arty short film. On her latest track, the starry-eyed ‘To Build a House’, the newcomer burrows deep into her soul. “This song started as a poem...
  • Party For Two - Toothless
    Louis Bhose explores a personal quest of self-improvement in his video for Toothless. A montage of pain with little gain sees the hero of this story attempt to remain active by going to the gym (but ends up throwing up) or expanding their literary repertoire (but falling asleep about four pages into Gravity's Rainbow). It's a great, bittersweet exploration of doing th...
