Art of Sleeping, Crazy
I fell in love with Queensland group Art of Sleeping last year. Their single Crazy sent me CRAZY! Ha. I was lucky enough to see them at falls Festival, and we also caught them recently in Brisbane. Anyway, Crazy now has it’s own video clip, whhaaaat?
The clip follows the band members through their road trips and songwriting adventures. The band provided creative direction under the helm of editor and drummer Jean Paul Malengret.
BRNS, Many Chances
Described as “progressive pop,” Brussels band BRNS have just unveiled the video for their rich, sweeping, single Many Chances. Featuring delicate guitars, big drums and soaring vocals, it’s a really cool song. The beautiful animated video clip was created by Nicolas Fong, who stated that it “attempts to echo that casualness, the constant internal struggle and vanity of a personal question. It’s about fighting your inner dark demons.”
Miss Jungle on their recent Laneway tour? Never fear, for you now have a super fresh new film clip to enjoy! Directed by band member J and Oliver Hadlee Pearch, it’s my favourite clip this week. Starting with one interpretive dancer, it quickly grows to six and a fully choreographed routine. In fact, it’s the full cast of dancers you’ve seen throughout their earlier clips for Platoon, The Heat, Busy Earnin’ and Time. As entertaining and exciting to watch as the band are on stage, these beautiful, visceral clips never fail to leave me in awe.
Oisima, Sun of Truth ft. Seraswati
A video as funky and fashionable as the song itself, Adelaide’s Oisima has just unveiled the clip for his jazzy new single Sun of Truth. The clip was directed by Tom Wilson, and follows three ladies around a city and its stunning natural surroundings. It’s a fresh track with some incredible flute licks and sax solos, and while the clip does admittedly look a bit like a commercial for a clothing range, it’s nevertheless draws you in to somewhere slightly strange, slightly magical.
Alison Wonderland, U Don’t Know ft. Wayne Coyne
As if a collab with Flaming Lips
total douchebag frontman Wayne Coyne wasn’t random enough, Alison Wonderland’s new video clip features none other than Christopher Mintz-Plasse, perhaps best known as McLovin from Superbad. The song is awesome, despite featuring a complete idiot Wayne Coyne. McLovin’s gone a little crazy and has kidnapped Alison in his car. Eventually she escapes and the roles reverse. It’s weird, intense and thoroughly enjoyable.
Tei Shi, Bassically
Tei Shi’s single Bassically was easily one of my favourite electro-pop songs of last year, and now it’s got a funky video clip to boot. Featuring kinds of fashionable military attire (lingerie with goggles and a trench coat) along with swords, fire, guns, bow and arrows and more, it’s pretty cool and totally sexy. What’s more, Tei Shi will be releasing an EP, Verde, on April 17! I’m SUPER excited about this and you should be too.
