Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:17:57
It was quite the week for music videos. From collaborations between stars to brand new artists making their first appearance on the screen, the videos that came out this week were fascinating. Tiesto teamed up with John Legend and debuted the seasonal; "Summer Nights." White Lung released the video for "Dead Weight." Schoolboy Q unveiled yet another music video, this time for "John Muir."
Meanwhile, the indie kids were all over the screens as well. Sin Fang debuted the video for "Candyland." Dum Dum Girls' Kristin Welchez unveiled the debut album from her solo project Kristin Kontrol back in May and this week released the video for "Smoke Rings." The Head and The Heart revealed "All We Ever Knew." And that was only the beginning for a week filled with jaw-dropping eye and ear candy.
Here are our favorites:
The Girdles - "Hard" - Directed by Leany Bean
The Girdles is Leanne Macomber's solo sideproject. Her new song, "Hard," is gauzy and lush, and the karaoke-inspired video's simplicity fits its soul perfectly.
Is Tropical - "What You Want" - Directed by William Kennedy
We'll let the video's director, William Kennedy explain the video to you: "I made this film at a turning point in my life. I met someone and I dropped everything to be with her, thousands of miles from home. This was my way of coming to terms with the past and allowing myself to be happy."
Gurr - "Moby Dick"
The lead single from Gurr's upcoming album In My Head, "Moby Dick" is Berlin indie rock at its simplest and finest. The video is simple, quirky and just fits, just like Gurr.
Phantogram - "You Don't Get Me High Anymore"
Tidal Waves, motorcycle jumps, and S&M, what more needs to be said?
