VIDEO: Emika – Flashback

Berlin producer Emika just finished the recording of a full symphony in Prague and is already back to release new music on her main line: dark, melodic, beat-driven synth pop. Watch the video to “Flashbacks”:

VIDEO: Postaal – Burnin’

Postaal are a duo from Paris and that’s all we know at this point. The video is set somewhere in Southeast Asia and juxtaposes serene landscapes with city life and Thai boxing. Somehow, this summarizes nicely the chorus: “Keep the fires burnin’, baby”.

VIDEO: Tsar B – Escalate

The video for “Escalate” by Belgian singer Tsar B was inspired by an Aladdin musical. For me it has rather a spy movie vibe where cloaked characters going after some guy for some reason. Who’s on the right or wrong side here? Who knows?

VIDEO: Eliza Shaddad – Wars

“Wars” is the first single of UK artist Eliza Shaddad and there could not be a bleaker place for the video taking place than an empty parking garage. Eliza seems to walk around aimlessly, but she is looking for something and what she finds is not pretty.

VIDEO: Naadia – Omut

This is a new song Omut (Омут) by the electronic Russian band Naadia (Наадя). It is a slow, atmospheric track, which fits perfectly to the visuals that fall somewhere between Games of Throne and a Fever Ray video. Check out also this live video of an older song on s[…]

VIDEO: Letters to Nepal – Loosing Now

Booklyn electronic duo Letters to Nepal has just released a video for the NPR Tiny Desk Contest. Watch Anton Fadeev hammering the beats into his Maschine controller, while Evgeniya Kusnetzova is singing, playing the theremin and doing the special effects. It is all live and recorded in one take. We[…]

VIDEO: Vallés – Sorrow

You might ask where is the sorrow here? French artist Vallés seems to have a good time here, following a beautiful woman through a beautiful mediterranean landscape (the Spanish island of Ibiza, maybe, Vallés home). Wait a little and you’ll see that it doesn’t work out so well.

Video: Teischa – Couldn’t Care Less

Watch Melbourne artist Teischa perform Couldn’t Care Less on a piano live in her home town. We already picked this track in August, but this stripped down version fits well into the quiet time of the year. Also, it serves as a reminder that a certain British superstar who everybody[…]

Video: Monogold – Pink Lemonade

“Pink Lemonade” is a track on “Good Heavens”, Monogold’s third full-length album. This time around, Keith Kelly (vocals, guitar), Jared Apuzzo (drums) and Michael Falotico (bass, vocals) change up their usual music creation process and focus on what kind of dreamy sounds they can produce with guitar, bass and drums only – plus[…]

Video: Cross Record – High Rise

Slightly on the creepy side is this video by Cross Record, which shows a masked Emily Cross operating a chain saw. Maybe this is what you come up with when you live on a ranch like Emily and her husband do. But the music is not country-side at all, so[…]
