Golan’s “Rocket Love”, featuring Island Chain, is smooth, velvety electro pop that’s gorgeously nostalgic, with a music video that’s just as dreamy as the single.
“Radiohead meets Nick Cave meets Bach. In the middle of a panic attack.” That dichotomy of sound is what defines Alien Hand Syndrome, AKA Vienna based artist Clemens Engert, and his new single and music video, “Entwined,” is personal, transportive, and moody leap into his world, and state of mind.
Sweet and sultry, Haley Reinhart’s “Last Kiss Goodbye” sounds like a jazz hit from a different era. Reinhart’s smooth, gorgeous vocals flow like waves on the beach, and the lyrics are beautifully catchy. The track sounds like it could have come from a movie soundtrack, or on the patio of a fancy Italian restaurant.
The Eiffels’ “Body Like That” is what summer sounds like. The Los Angeles indie-pop band captures the fun, feel-good vibes of rolling down the windows and singing along with the volume cranked, and it doesn’t hurt that the track channels some of the fun of acts like Walk The Moon, with classic, old school pop attitude.
“We traveled 1,618 miles to write a song about coming back home,” Kansas City alt-rockers Yes You Are said. “This song was inspired, in a dark LA studio, by the idea of someone that’s worth waiting for, and became a plea for the wait to be over soon.”
London native Alex Hepburn belts out soulful, modern, and powerful R&B in her first UK single, “I Believe”, arriving ahead of her debut album that’s coming out later this year.
Sophie Simmons makes her musical premiere with “Black Mirror”, a brooding pop song with a beating heart that’s plaintive and fierce, with a rock sensibility that drives the track to higher ground.
If you haven’t seen or at least heard of Psy’s “Gangnam Style”, what rock have you been living under? This video might be one of the hottest things on the planet, and it’s also one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen.
Delta Heavy’s video for the single “Get By” may just be the most violent desecration of eighties games I have seen in my life, but it definitely makes for a great music video.
If Colin Farrell doesn’t freak you out as the creepy vampire in the movie Fright Night, then Kid Cudi might just do the trick in his video “No One Believes Me,” which is the first single from the film’s soundtrack.
