Ell V Gore – “Lobotomy”
Ell V Gore‘s video for “Lobotomy” is meant to shock and awe with its emphasis on cross-dressing and sexual fetishes. However, I’d say that stuff’s pretty normal now in our current society. So nice to see you joining the party, Ell. Borrow my panty hose anytime. “Lobotomy” appears on the EP, Sex Static.
Rathborne – “Last Forgiven”
The Feather – “Sighs”
Belgium indie pop band The Feather are reminiscent to Bon Iver (especially the Justin Vernon-like vocals, my gawd!), Grizzly Bear and Arcade Fire. Those are some impressive names, I know. However, their song “Sighs” could be our introduction to something very special to come. The Feather will release their debut album, Invisible, through JauneOrange / Pias in September. Watch the lyric video for “Sighs” below.
Bruce Soord with Jonas Renkse – “Frozen North”
The Pineapple Thief frontman, Bruce Soord, and Jonas Renkse from Katatonia have revealed their new music video for “Frozen North,” taken from the joint effort, Wisdom of Crowds, out now on Kscope. “The song is about desolation and breakdown,” says Soord. “I love the fact that a director can interpret the song in such a way as to transport us to a foreign world! My image of being ‘stuck in the frozen north’ is nothing compared to being stuck on a planet far, far away….”
The Torn ACLs – “Industry”
The Torn ACLs have released a clever new lyrics video for the new song, “Industry”. The band use powerpoint to acquaint listeners with the song’s lyrics. “Industry” is the follow song to “Something About the Sky,” which was released earlier this year.
Trentemøller – “Never Stop Running” (feat. Jonny Pierce of The Drums)
Danish electronic artist Trentemøller has released a video for his new single, “Never Stop Running” (feat. Jonny Pierce of The Drums). The track is taken from his forthcoming third album, Lost, out this September on his own label In My Room. The video captures the vibe of the tune through the direction of cinematographer Frederik Jacobi, who took a camera to Los Angeles to “listen” to people and capture moods to blend with the visual space of the video.
Treetop Flyers – “Houses Are Burning”
Treetop Flyers have shared a live video for “Houses Are Burning”. The song appears on their forthcoming album, The Mountain Moves (out June 25th). Filmed in one take in a warehouse in Leeds, England by The Blind Club, it gives fans an idea of just what to expect from The Mountain Moves.
Paper Lions – “Philadelphia”
Canadian indie rockers Paper Lions have released a new performance video for the track “Philadelphia” from their forthcoming sophomore LP, My Friends. The video was filmed in one shot in an historic seaport warehouse (what’s with the one takes and warehouse videos) in the band’s native PEI. Watch the video for “Philadelphia” below.
Y LUV – “All I Wanna Do”
Y LUV‘s song “All I Wanna Do” has a very early 2K alternative pop sound to it. Think Angels & Airwaves. Okay, don’t think about Angels & Airwaves…ever. Anyway, the band has shared a video for “All I Wanna Do” that features a road trip to the desert with nothing but time to think.
Like Swimming – “God Knows”
Like Swimming‘s video for “God Knows” reminds me of a romantic comedy poster — the man and woman’s backs are together and you can tell they’re totally opposites for each other. Like Swimming self describe themselves as a Swedish pop group with melodies like dolphins and rythms like sea lions.
