VIDEO PICKS: Buzzy Lee, Mediocre, Only The Poets, Rebecca Lappa

Buzzy Lee – When Can I

On a carousel, you can move all the time without ever coming closer to what is in front of you. That is the metaphor that Sasha Spielberg, aka Buzzy Lee, uses in the video of her new song “When Can I” about falling hopelessly in love. “When Can I” is from Sasha’s new album Internal Affairs, out now.

“Together Together” celebrates togetherness with a super-cute video that makes you smile. Behind is the Boston-based duo Mediocre, who will release their new EP, To Know You’re Screwed, this Friday.

Only The Poets – JUMP!

With a band name like Only The Poets, I am already interested in the formation. Add a song with the title “JUMP!,” bringing back memories of Van Halen’s 80s banger “Jump,” and I’m in. Clearly, the writing in all capitals and the addition of an exclamation mark make all the difference. Ha! Luckily, the English indie-rockers are also able to deliver because their live show and behind-the-scenes video is very atmospheric and gives a good idea of what touring and playing live as Only The Poets might look like. I also love the sentiment of the track when the band says:

“‘JUMP!’ is about all the times when you need to follow your heart and not your head. Too often in life we don’t take the leap, always wondering about potential problems and over thinking. It’s a song all about being completely unapologetic about jumping into something new and exciting, whatever that might be.”

Rebecca Lappa – Lolita

Sometimes, it doesn’t need more than a visualizer, especially when the topic is already rather complex. Rebecca Lappa, an instant new glamglare favorite artist (“Blue Lips”), released the lush and gripping “Lolita,” which tackles exactly what you might think it does. Loosely inspired by Vladimir Nabokov’s 1955 novel, Rebecca says about her new, absolutely gorgeous single:

“The song touches on the two main characters in the book alluding to the forbidden nature of the relationship between an older man and a much younger woman and the frenetic dynamic between the two. The muted guitars fill the track with urgency and the heartbeat of the kick drum lends commentary on the perceived sexuality and innocence of young women as interpreted by male audiences, while the careful layering of synth and harmonies leads to an anthemic chorus.”
