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[…]

Video: Vanessa Carlton – House of Seven Swords

Vanessa Carlton invites us in the video “House of Seven Swords” into her beautiful new home in Nashville. Nothing suggests the existence of seven swords in there, but it is of course meant metaphorical. In any case the song is beautiful and so is her fifth album Liberman, out now[…]

Video: Empress Of – Icon

This video shows off three things we love in New York: the beautiful landscape upstate, New York City and the great music that is created there, in this case by Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of, who recently released her excellent debut Me. Watch and enjoy:

Video: Jaala – Salt Shaker

Not sure what exactly is going on in this video by the Melbourne four-piece Jaala – it’s more like a weird dream which you wake up from and don’t know what it meant. For sure I love the stuffed animal zombie-monster and the song is outstanding once you have come[…]
