Last Shadow Puppets Cover Leonard Cohen, Maggie Rogers, Honeyblood Reign In Top Music Videos Of The Week - October 15 - 21
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 15:20:08
What a week it has been for music videos. The Weeknd premiered the second single and music video from his forthcoming album Starboy, and "False Alarm"'s video is even more brutal and violent than the one for the title track. Oneohtrix Point Never recruited Val Kilmer for their "Animals" video, where he literally just sits on a bed. Black Kids unveiled only their second single, "Obligatory Drugs", since 2009's Cemetery Lips EP.
Meanwhile, Ab-soul got politically minded in his new song, "Huey Knew", and the video doesn't pull any punches. KAMI, who is part of the Savemoney collective with Joey Purp, released the video and single for "Home Movies", the first song off his upcoming album due out next year. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with impressive new music videos.
Here are our favorites:
The Last Shadow Puppets - "Is That What You Wanted" (Leonard Cohen Cover) - Directed by Ben Chappell and Aaron Brown
Leonard Cohen, those are some big shoes to fill, but Alex Turner and Miles Kane do a more than admirable job with the classic "Is That What You Wanted". We caught up with The Last Shadow Puppets to discuss their newest LP, Everything You've Come to Expect.
Maggie Rogers - "Alaska" - Directed by Zia Anger
Maggie Rogers made headlines earlier this year when she stunned Pharrell with her song "Alaska". And this week the track finally got a video featuring the songstress and some backup dancers that is equally as captivating.
Honeyblood - "Sea Hearts" - Directed by Thomas James
Honeyblood is set to release their third album next week. This week they debuted the second video, "Sea Hearts", from the record. We caught up with Stina Marie Claire Tweeddale to talk Babes Never Die.
Moby & The Void Pacific Choir unveiled their new album, These Systems Are Failing, just last week. We caught up with Moby to discuss his memoir, Porcelain.
