While Connecticut-based 20-year-old artist and producer Kevin George prepares to drop his debut release LOVELAND on the world, he’s got some tricks up his sleeve leading up to it. Namely, the release of his new single “High Like This” and its accompanying video. Full of insanely trippy visuals – Seriously, how amazing is the movement in this video?! – the video takes you on a journey with George himself, while he croons some seductive and fun lyrics in different settings, the colors play well to captivate your attention. It’s really a remarkable work of art, an experience of sorts.

WARNING: It will be difficult to accept the fact that Kevin George is this talented out the gate. But he is, and we can’t wait for more.

Since the September release of his album Diviners and Shivs, Brooklyn-based outlaw folk musician Ardell Jason Shealy Stutts – more commonly referred to by his stage name Rust Dust – has been creating and releasing visuals to go along with the 13-track collection. His latest? A live recording of the man himself playing his track “Wayfaring Stranger” at Silver Springs Farm. Rustic and simple surroundings bring a humble and relatable feel to the experience, Rust Dust’s vocals reassuring in their delivery.

His beard will only sweeten the deal for ya.

natali felicia, “this summer is cruel”

natali felicia, “this summer is cruel”

Seems particularly cruel when people release music videos full of references to warmer weather, or full of visuals of summer in the dead of winter. And yet, it happens all the time. At least, that’s how we feel in the northern hemisphere at this very moment. But the way Natali Felicia represents her surroundings in “This Summer is Cruel” is slightly cruel, in that it feels as though it’s promising this flash of warm weather and brilliant color, whereas the video was shot in black and white, and hosts visuals with soft breezes and – while you certainly get a glimpse of water – no real proof that it was even shot in the summer. The Stockholm-bred musician released her music video for “This Summer is Cruel” leading up to the release of her debut album, expected later this year. Her melancholic video is certainly enhanced to full-length picture quality with the robust and gorgeous tones to her vocals, indicating she is about to stake her claim on the music industry with full force.

On January 26th, we will have the pleasure of enjoying Dream Wife‘s debut album in its entirety, but until then we’ve got another fun surprise for you. The trio recently released the music video for their track “Hey Heartbreaker”, and we’ve got it for you to enjoy. Directed and animated (Beautifully, might we add?) by Mason London, the video is alluring in its ability to capture your attention utilizing robot cartoons. Somehow, we feel like we’re getting a little taste of the band’s actual performance chops in the video, even though their characters are animated robots. The video has the unmistakable feel of a Gorillaz classic in the way its presented, with a slightly more punk and empowered tilt to it all.

kahiem rivera, “throat” {premiere}

East coast rap artist Kahiem Rivera is coming at us today with the premiere of his brand new video for “Throat”. Directed by Benjamin Garst and produced by Gabriel Gomez, the video is a beautiful and rough introspective piece that goes along perfectly with the single’s lyrics. Delivered with clean, artful shots, he sits in a dark room, draped in chains and looking into mirrors requesting that someone tell him how he’s “supposed” to be, as a single lightbulb sways overhead. It feels more like an interrogation, as he seems to be facing his demons alone.

As we all learn to be more introspective and guided in the new year, let this song and this video be a staple to go back to when we are feeling alone and questioning our purpose in life.
