Music Video

Only A Visitor are an art-pop quintet from Vancouver who are gearing up the release of their new album Lines on June 16. Today, they have given us the honor to premiere their brand new music video for the album’s new single and title track.

The lush song is full of colorful vocals and arrangements that are as delicate as they are soothing. Think a mix of Dirty Projectors with female led vocals as well as the shape-shifting arrangements of Grizzly Bear and Tune-Yards. The video which features many imaginative animations put together by video artist Roxanne Nesbitt is a lovely visualization of the track which winningly brings it to life in visual form.

Check out the video below, and for more information on the band, head to their website.

Draumr – “Hydrangeas”

By Will Oliver, May 27th 2017

Draumr is the project of Paris-based musician Gabriel Cheurfa. My introduction to Draumr came via the colorful music video for the equally colorful track “Hydrangeas.” It’s a synth-led psych-pop gem that is like a child between Toro y Moi and Tame Impala.

Not only does the track rule through the finest explorations of dream-pop, it features a memorable video companion thanks to the work of artists Kathleen Ponsard & Ivan Herrera, members of the Chroniques Cosmiques Collective, who both animated and directed the video.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a more chill track this weekend. Grab a cold one, dig in, and let your mind go wherever the hell it takes you.

Eliza & The Delusionals – “Salt”

By Will Oliver, May 27th 2017

Eliza & The Delusionals are a rock group out of the city of Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, led by Eliza Klatt. Their recently released “Single” is a track that is totally worth your time.

A mix of a garage rock stomper with some hooky pop-vocals, “Salt” is an addictive force of energy that would’ve been right at home in the 90’s but feels even more well needed today, a much smarter pop song than anything you’ll hear on the radio, at least here in the US.

Find the official music video for “Salt” posted below, along with the soundcloud stream.

Heavy Heart – “Fruitfly”

By Will Oliver, May 7th 2017

Heavy Heart are a indie rock group who hail from London, and bring a bit of the 90s Brit Rock sound with them.

Fans of Wolf Alice will want to keep a close eye on these group, who recently released their debut album Keepsake (via new independent label I Can & I Will – on raspberry red vinyl, hand-numbered and signed, limited to 300 copies), a collection of all the songs that they released last year, one each month.

The group has released a very 90’s-esque music video for “Fruitfly” a mesmerizing track that sounds like a mix of Wolf Alice, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Lush. It’s a song drenched with emotional nostalgia, with a sense of longing, but also hope. It’s a lush listen, one that I hope you dive into below:

It seems like ever since the release of DSU in 2014, Alex G has been at it non-stop, releasing Beach Music, his first album for Domino Records in 2015, and of course, he toured non-stop and seemed to never take a break. Things were a little bit quieter for the band last year, but we had a feeling something had to be on the way. It was just a matter of time.

Sure enough, today Alex G has announced a brand new album named Rocket, which Domino will release on May 19 (preorder here). With today’s announcement he’s also released two offerings from the album, “Bobby” and “Witch.”

Slow Dancer – Don’t Believe

By Will Oliver, February 22nd 2017

Slow Dancer is the project of Melbourne, Australia singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Simon Okely, formerly of the Melbourne band Oh Mercy. He’s gearing up for the release of his second album, which he will release on ATO Records.

He’s just shared a new track from the album called “Don’t Believe,” a calming piece of electronic/r&b fushion. It’s a rather smooth affair, one that sneaks up on you after a few repeat listens, slowly revealing its hooks and tricks to delicious effect.

Catch it’s rather cinematic music video posted below (directed by Sam Brumby), and stay tuned as he will make his NYC live debut on March 23 at Rockwood Music Hall.

Greta Salome – “Row”

By Will Oliver, November 30th 2016

Greta Salóme is a singer/songwriter/violinist from Iceland. Trained as a classical violinist, she spices things up with a flair for pop music that creates something that is most certainly unique to her.

Take for instance her most recent track, “Row.” There’s a chilly atmosphere to the sound that is well complimented by her classical mindset. The icy bounce of the synths go along with the pop-minded verses and build, that result in something memorable and fresh.

Take a listen to “Row” below via the stream, and scroll down even further for it’s official music video.

Bitter’s Kiss – “My God”

New Jersey singer-songwriter Chloe Baker works under the moniker Bitter’s Kiss, and has amassed quite the following over the past few years. We’ve shared her work on here before, including the music video for her song “No One Will” much earlier in the year.

She’s recently returned with a new song entitled “My God,” a song that Baker used as a reaction to “the irony in religious conflict.” Her natural ability as a songwriter and singer shines through her, with a unique almost quirky Regina Spektor vibe that certainly stands out against the rest. She’s doing something different and has something to say while doing so.

Find a stream of “My God” below, along with it’s official music video.

Interview: The Last Shadow Puppets

By Will Oliver, April 6th 2016 — with 1 comment

The Last Shadow Puppets Interview

There was a point in time where I started to wonder if The Last Shadow Puppets would ever return. The duo of Alex Turner and Miles Kane had been gone for eight years, understandably busy with their other projects. Thankfully, this year the stars aligned and the duo are back with their long-awaited sophomore album Everything You’ve Come To Expect, which was released last Friday via Domino Records.

A few months ago on a cold day in early February, I headed to the Ace Hotel to meet up with Alex and Miles, to chat over some fine cups of tea and talk about stepping back into the spotlight, the new album, how they work together as a duo, and what what exactly fans can expect this time around. I even brought up the James Bond comparisons, and what exactly it would take for them to pen the next Bond song.

Enjoy the full interview, which is posted below.
