    more yuna videos »

    A slew of music videos premiered to eager eyes this week. Holy F*** put out the video for "Tom Tom," the first single off their first album since 2010, Congratulations. AlunaGeorge debuted their third music video of the year, this one for "My Blood," which much like their previous video "I Remember" is shot in a single room.

    Islands unveiled the video for "No Milk, No Sugar" directed by band member Nick Thorburn. Future Punx put out the wildly psychedelic animated video for "How to Dance." Alesso debuted the black-and-white-action-movie-styled "I Wanna Know" [ft. Nico and Vinz]. And that was only the beginning for a week full of eye and ear candy coming from all over the music map.

    Here are our favorites:






    White Lung - "Below" - Directed by Richard Bates Jr

    An audience of Marilyn Monroe lookalikes watch as White Lung performs in a mostly empty theater. The lookalike performance are fierce, especially the one sitting front and center, and despite its simplicity, "Below" proves to be a thoroughly engulfing video.


    Yuna - "Crush" [ft. Usher] - Directed by Daniel Carberry

    Flirty, simple, shot in black and white, the video for "Crush" perfectly fits the new coquettish single from Malaysian crossover pop star Yuna. Children as well as an elderly man and woman cannot help themselves from getting a little, ahem, crush, when they see Yuna and Usher singing their individual verses.


    TOKiMONSTA - "Giving Up" [ft. Jonny Pierce of The Drums - Directed by David Gantz and Theo Cohn

    The pretty, sad, surreal music video for TOKiMONSTA's "Giving Up" [ft. Jonny Pierce of The Drums] features an intense dinner table conversation, kaleidoscope visions, and a jblindinging desert light juxtaposed against night. It's an ideal amount of contrast for a song with the words, "It took me a minute to find the truth / I'm giving up, I'm giving up on me and you."


    Azealia Banks - "The Big Beat" - Directed by Matt Sukkar

    Tiled cream walls and concrete buildings act as the setting for Azealia Banks' newest video. Of course, Banks takes center stage as she dances inside and outdoors to the 90s-esque "Big Beat."


    Tegan and Sara - "Boyfriend" - Directed by Clea Duvall

    The Quin twins, better known as Tegan and Sara, find themselves in the midst of their own music video shoot as they are shot in different clothes, with different characters, and against different backgrounds.
