Russ Chimes releases his newest song ‘Turn Me Out’ along with a visual jewel. The bright colours, random images and clever editing give it a smart edge. Director’s duo Mathy and Fran delivered just the right video for this song.
An old man realises that some things end. A tragical song and a video that empowers the feeling. From home base Montreal, duo Majical Cloudz makes music that goes deeper than your regular easy-listening songs. A very good choice, is to have their video directed by the talented Emily Kai Bock. If you look at her work, one can only conclude that her name is going to pop up more often in the future.
The Swedish/Australian duo Kate Boy does it again! After their catchy single ‘Northern Lights’ caused quite a stirr on the web, they have now released their second video. ‘In Your Eyes’ has a beautiful build-up, is equally catchy and the black & white video matches perfectly.
All the wealth doesn´t make you happy. That’s the message in the newest Bondax video ‘Gold’. The gold Bondax (Rolex) watch does bad things to it’s owner. Featuring the signature Bondax sound, this is a gold one. Stay poor!
In a tropical setting, this video shows a few boys strolling through the rainforest. Their behaviour is as wild as the forest. Disagreeing, fighting, and a dramatic ending. Scratch Massive from Paris had the video for their heavy track directed by Edouard Salier.
James Blake‘s video for his new single Retrograde, taken from his forthcoming album Overgrown out on April 8 through Republic, is a very airy and haunting film that matches perfectly the lightness of Blake’s musical universe. Blake for an other time entrusts Martin De Thurah for the direction of the film, a film that captures what seems like an asteroid attack on earth. It is dressed with finesse and attention to detail, and hits high cinematic levels with incorporating almost no special effects.
The song ‘Open’ by Rhye is one that grabs you at the first tune. With a song this quiet, Danish director Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen did a great job creating an equally quiet video around it. The album ‘Woman’ is set to release the 4th of March.
Woodkid released another piece of art to go with his newest song ‘I Love You’. His long expected album ‘The Golden Age’ will be released in March. The title of the album stands for the period he feels is going through now. Transforming from a boy into a man and really finding out what it is he wants to do. Anyway, we love what he does.
This music video is an atmospheric piece filled with beautifully composed shots and a strange, surreal tone which owes a lot to the photographic work of Gregory Crewdson. It’s clear to see that Pablo Maestres is definitely a talent to watch, and this video is his first collaboration with the excellent London-based production company A+. Fans of the band can pick up a free copy of the single from the group’s bandcamp page, or check out their album, Onto Endo, here
The newest video from catchy group M83 is here! ‘Wait’ visually tells a story about a group of kids with superpowers. The video kind of looks like it consists of scenes taken from multiple big screen movies. It all has a very professional touch, thanks to the French director Fleur & Manu.
Flight Facilities, normally known for their danceable disco style, have released a deeper song. ‘Clair De Lune’ is somewhat dreamy, with the accompaniment of Christine Hobergs amazing voice. In the video we see two girls spending one day and night driving and stealing around in a city. The ending seems to say: what goes around, comes around.
Funky beat, catchy chorus and a sleek video. With Kate Boy, the Swedish pop scene seems be right on track to explode in 2013. The animations keep the video interesting because you’re not sure what it is you’re seeing. Since this is their first official sound, we’re already looking forward to hear more from them.
