Video Roundup: Hooded Fang – “Bye Bye Love”; High Wolf – “Kulti”; VOWS – “Symbol System”; more!

Hooded Fang – “Bye Bye Land”

The cast of The Purge aren’t the only ones having fun with masks. For Hooded Fang‘s new video for “Bye Bye Land”, several actresses got to throw on plastic dollar store masks and party together in a desert. Unfortunately a turf war erupts and ends badly for one of the girls.

Hooded Fang’s new album, Gravez, is out now.

High Wolf – “Kulti”

Considering all of the various musical elements that make up High Wolf’s latest album, Kairos: Chronos, it should be of no surprise that he’s also interested in the tiniest of particles making up our natural being. Explore the microscopic wonders with his new video for “Kulti”.

Maps & Atlases – “Old Ash”

Maps & Atlases‘ new video for “Old Ash” marks a milestone for the band. It features guitarist/vocalist Dave Davison shaving his beard for the first time in four years. The clip was directed by drummer Christopher Hainey and shot through a two-way mirror. “Old Ash” appears on last year’s Beware & Be Grateful.

Imperial Teen – “No Matter What You Say”

In celebration of the UK release of Imperial Teen‘s Feel the Sound, the band has shared a new video for “No Matter What You Say” starring Emily Browning. Would you rather stare at something else than Browning’s beautiful face? I think not.

VOWS – “Symbol System”

If you’re unfamiliar with VOWS, they come from the land down under. Consisting of Sydney natives Matt & Rizz, VOWS craft dark, buzzing music full of discordant guitars, grinding synths, and heavy electro beats. The band just released their self-titled EP earlier this month that draws inspiration from literature, film, and the pop culture they grew up on– including bands like The Cure & Bauhaus. However, I think the video for their song, “Symbol System”, would clue you in on all that.

Peals – “Blue Elvis”

Peals have released a new video for “Blue Elvis”, directed by acclaimed surf filmmaker George Trimm. The video features excerpts from Trimm’s film Bootleg, which was co-directed by Joel Tudor and features surfing by Harrison Raoch and Yuta Sezutsu. The slow-motion surf footage only serves to amplify the song’s nostalgic atmosphere.

Spectrals – “A Heartbeat Behind”

Spectrals have shared a video for “A Heartbeat Behind”. The song is taken from their forthcoming album, Sob Story, out next week (June 18th). What’s the point of the video? There isn’t one. But that arcade sure does look like a lot of fun.
