angela kinczly, “s i l e n t”

Paulo Fassoli just directed one of the most exquisite music videos we have seen in a while. Softly, Angela Kinczly serenades us with her haunting vocals, closeups of different angles of her face featured prominently throughout the duration of the visual. Natural patterns are layered in, and color is utilized toward the end to create an even more intense visual experience.

Attention to detail makes this an absolute masterpiece.

june 2019: new videos, no holds barred

june 2019: new videos, no holds barred

Alright. You all know what we do around here by now. Mid-month, we release genre-inclusive soundtrack features that are jam packed with new music videos specifically for your viewing pleasure. We know that people exist in the world that curate playlists to evoke a specific emotion, or to bring people back to a specific point in time.

These soundtrack pieces are not specific. These soundtrack pieces will jump from hip hop to indie rock to alternative to gospel and back again, and there’s not much we’re truly willing to do about it. Because, as the month’s cause would suggest, love is love. Music is music.

Bring me everything new, no holds barred!

Check back all month for new music videos throughout the end of June 2019!

james world, “funny dreams”

Today, we have the insane pleasure of premiering alt-rock collective James World‘s latest visual gem for the title track off their upcoming album Funny Dreams. Beginning in a rural community walking down the street, you get a feeling that something is a-brewing if not only for the edgy vocals and guitar that lead in to the core of the track. Overlays of scenes enter the frame in black and white, creating a psychedelic space for the viewer, amidst flashing lights and a sense of confusion amidst the insanity. And yet, the adventure is somehow calming as the beautiful trees lead you out.

Check it out below and let us know what you think on Facebook!

oliver kennan, “the tinkerer”

oliver kennan, “the tinkerer”

Indie-soul musician Oliver Kennan releases the music video for his single “The Tinkerer” today, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere. Slightly muted colors give a vintage tinge to the visual that allows it to match its soundscape a little more. A complicated relationship, lots of curls, and some quick choreography make for a stellar visual experience. Explains Oliver:

The music video for ‘The Tinkerer’ is a surreal comedy about a young girl and the chaos of growing up. It re-contextualizes the lyrics of the song which read like the wild inner dialogue of a troubled soul. Everyone knows that adolescence can be just as complicated as adulthood and the contrast of the image of a child and the thoughts of an adult lets us explore that idea and laugh about it at the same time.
