The Ocean Party, Deluded
Bassist Mark Rogers cuts a rug in the backstreets of Fitzroy, Melbourne to what is one of the most impressive tracks on one of 2014’s most impressive albums. The Ocean Party are going from strength to strength these days, but maybe what they didn’t even know they were missing lies in the mystery man at the end of the clip? Catch them on tour soon!
A-Trak, Push ft Andrew Wyatt
One of my favourite dance tracks of last year has seen A-Trak return to his rightful spot on top after a little break. Featuring the undeniably striking and captivating vocals of Miike Snow‘s Andrew Wyatt, this is piano-house at it’s banging best! The clip gets weird with some pretty crazy scenes of young high society, and is actually perfectly suited to the track. A-Trak recently told The Fader, “I also really wanted a tiger and a squid, I was very specific about that.” Classic A-Trak.
RATKING, Snow Beach
Landing in Australia very soon for Laneway Festival, RATKING have done it again with their latest clip for Snow Beach. Braving the freezing cold (20 degrees Fahrenheit, people), the boys take us on a tour of NYC including the deserted beach. Known for their ability to push the boundaries with their captivating and demanded music, Snow Beach is one of the best songs off their 2014 album So It Goes. TOASTIIIIIIING!
Total Giovanni, Can’t Control My Love
I can’t stop raving about this group, and their latest clip is just adding to my argument that Total Giovanni are one of the most exciting groups to come out of Melbourne in 2014. The film clip for their second track, Can’t Control My Love centres around a group of bad boys getting up to no good, with things not sitting right with the youngest member. When they pick on a young girl – the object of the young boy’s affections – things take a turn for the better thanks to the disco breakdown in the new track. Also, a moment of respect for Total Giovanni’s cameos and the outfits they’re wearing.
POMO, Back 2 U
POMO is on the same label as Kaytranada (HW&W Recordings), and performs alongside HudMo, Giraffage and SpazzKid, so he must know what he’s doing! His first ever music video off his debut 8 track EP, The Other Day, is stunning, with beautiful imagery of professional high diving. However, things get really trippy as the scene begins to warp and melt until it’s completely unrecognisable. The song is catchy as all hell too, and shows there are big things to come from the Canadian producer!
