Canadian-based alternative duo Rachel Bobbit and Justice Der may have released their new album When This Plane Goes Down at the end of October, but the talent keeps getting thrown at us, this time in the form of a music video for their track “Beneath Our Feet (Exit Music)”. Placed appropriately at the end of the 9-track stunner of an album, it maintains the largely playful energy of the album, moving at a clip that is both fun to dance to and easy to relax to. But that’s what their music is. With light as a feather and yet somehow still sultry vocals, there isn’t a track on this album that we don’t adore.
That, coupled with layers of bizarre and fun visuals on what seems to be a night out, and you’ve got a very gorgeous video to enjoy. Check it out below, and let us know what you think on our Facebook page!
When This Plane Goes Down is out now. Keep up with Rachel Bobbitt and Justice Der here.
This week, Draag released the new music video for their first single, ambient track “Ghost Leak”. The song itself, as explained by the band, is about “the feeling of being completely invisible and inconsequential.” They take the meaning a step further with the video, keeping it as literal as possible.
Comprised of many still video clips of a single woman in different areas, amongst a variety of landscapes. Highway overpasses, in the middle of trees, in a souvenir shop, in front of a church. The list goes on and on. Each new shot is unexpected and beautiful, many establishing symmetry and the rule of thirds. And in each of them, the woman looks unseen.

The holidays are fast approaching, but the music industry is not showing any signs of slowing down on new releases. We’re keeping some new music videos close as our favorite new visuals, and want to share them with you. (As if it’s new… been doing it for a while now. But you know that. Of course.) We’ve got some great ones from Brooke Candy, Vanessa Carlton, Colony House, Bleed From Within, and more, so check it out now and perhaps swing back around later for more!
Atlanta-based rock collective Lesibu Grand is comin’ atcha hot with a new music video for their single “Runnin’ Round” today, and we have the exclusive premiere. The video matches the energy of the track, bringing in quite a number of humorous shenanigans from the band members themselves, while lead vocalist Tyler-Simone Molton adventures around town on a scooter. Bright pops of animation and an incredible kaleidoscope of colors makes this all the more fun and fancy-free. Check it out below, and let us know your thoughts on Facebook!
The Legend of Miranda was released on October 4th. Keep up with Lesibu Grand here.
“Adah” is Act I of the short film “WIDOW” by Crywolf. It is both a music video and an ominous, dark vignette from this incredible talent. Spoken poetry, with dark visuals and an established intensity that rivals classic horror films. What the artists involved have done with this gorgeous music piece is one of the most remarkable things we have seen this year yet. And this isn’t it, either. His full-length is gorgeous, and Act II of the film was released first and is available with the track “Mabul“.
Admits Crywolf of the 3 part series:
The series tells the story of a man’s descent into madness. He loses his mind and, thinking he is being directed by an angelic force, ends up killing the very thing he loves most. When he realizes what he has done, he’s devastated and jumps off a pier to escape. It turns out (in the third video) that he can’t die, and he is still haunted by the memory of his lover.
It’s a metaphor for my own struggle with mental illness, and the tumultuous realities of life as an artist. Pursuing these ethereal and magnificent concepts is so captivating, but can sometimes drive you to the edge of your sanity, and can cause you to hurt the things you love most… whether that is people around you, or parts of yourself. But, as the third act shows, those things are never really gone. They live on and won’t leave until they are accepted and integrated.

Burgeoning artist Talker releases her new music video for single “Learning the Feeling” today, and we’ve been anticipating this release for quite some time. We were lucky enough to speak with Talker in our podcast this year, and we’re thrilled with the new music she’s been releasing. Powerful, transformative, badass. When you realize the theme of anxiety and hidden emotion, this song — and its accompanying video — feels like a particularly beautiful release. And all of that is just multiplied with the new visual. Follow one of your new favorite artists as she wields a baseball bat, angsty vocals, and a jumpsuit.
