    more major lazer videos »

    This week saw a slew of eye candy made available to music lovers. Major Lazer released the gorgeous, black and white video for "Light It Up" [ft. Nyla & Fuse ODG]. It was shot entirely in Ghana and director by Sam Pilling who stated, "Delving deeper into Ghanaian culture, we found that their traditional funeral ceremonies perfectly exemplify this sense of coming together to rise up against sadness." Mogwai revealed the cellular beauty of "Ether," from their upcoming album Atomic.

    It wasn't just big names dropping eye-catching new videos this week. The I Don't Cares (The Replacements' Paul Westerberg and Juliana Hatfield) gave us a "Whole Lotta Nothin." Haelos "Separate Lives" explored the handheld-life of the everyday. For all of our, ahem, Mutual Benefit, the band released the romantically entangled video for the Death Cab-esque "Not For Nothing." Tacocat showered everyone with confetti and covered us in pen tattoos with their "I Hate the Weekend" video. And that was only the beginning for a week that saw a variety of new video gems hit screens.

    Here are our favorites:

    The Kills - "Doing It To Death" - Ash & Ice - Directed by Wendy Morgan

    The Kills are back from the dead and as good as ever. The band's new album, Ash & Ice, is due out June 3rd, but it seems the duo are already back in the step of things with their newest video, which finds them making their way through a cemetery with a host of black-coated characters.


    Frightened Rabbit - "Get Out" - Painting of a Panic Attack - Directed by Greg Davenport

    Taking place in the snow-dappled concrete of Kiev, Ukraine, Frightened Rabbit's video for "Get Out" displays the dance occurring between two young lovers. At times harsh and jarring, but still remaining soft and supple, it's beauty is in the juxtaposition of movement and space.


    Mt. Si - "Oh" - Limits EP - Directed by Garrett Curtis

    Filmed in Israel, desert sands haze into blue skies, and Sarah Chernoff stands alone against desolate beauty. There are a few moments where the singer is floating in the sea, much like her voice does on the track, but mostly we just watch as the sun sets and blue and tan turn to black and gold.
