Video of the Moment #2239: Grandaddy

By on Friday, 9th December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Following their break-up in 2006, the reformed Grandaddy recently announced their newest studio album will be out in the new year. ‘Last Place’, their first album in a decade, which is expected to be released on the 3rd of March 2017 on 30th Century Records. Last month, they revealed the song and video to ‘Way We Won’t, which we featured as this previous Video of the Moment. ‘A Lost Machine’ is the latest track to be unveiled from the upcoming long player, and the promo that accompanies it is described by their American press as “eerie”. Watch it below.

Video of the Moment #2238: TOY

By on Thursday, 8th December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Psych rockers TOY completed a UK last week to support LP ‘Clear Shot’. Released in October on Heavenly Recordings and produced by David Wrench at the end of 2015, their new album – their third – now has another music video to its name. As what feels like Heavenly’s usual M.O. (think Hooton Tennis Club, The Parrots), ‘Another Dimension’ is a hazy, woozy affair passing you by, with plenty of shots of the long-haired band. (What else would you expect from a psych band?) For more on London band TOY on TGTF, go here.

Video of the Moment #2237: The Magic Gang

By on Wednesday, 7th December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Never been to Brighton? No problem! The Magic Gang, who call the Southern seaside town their home, decided to feature the place in their latest promo video for ‘Only Waiting’. I’ve been to Brighton a handful of times for The Great Escape, but apparently I have somehow missed the pink bodysuit-clad being known colloquially as the Disco Bunny. Trust me, he has to be seen in this video to be believed. Blissfully unaware of his outfit’s brightness, or perhaps finding power in his, shall we say, unconventional dancing costume, his joyful prancing and true desire to make passersby happy with his antics seem to work well with this track from The Magic Gang, which appears on their ‘The Second EP From’ (get it?) out now. For more on The Magic Gang on TGTF, including my coverage of them at Canadian Music Week 2016, check out this link.

Video of the Moment #2236: Laura Mvula

By on Tuesday, 6th December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Neo-soul singer from Birmingham Laura Mvula revealed her sophomore album this summer. Out now on RCA Records, ‘The Dreaming Room’ garnered plaudits from all over. Tonight, we’ve got something for you that’s a little different. A few weeks ago, the Brummie songstress released to the wild ‘Ready or Not’, her cover of The Delfonics’ late ’60s hit single ‘Ready or Not Here I Come (Can’t Hide From Love)’.

In her version, Mvula decided to take a more in your face approach, which also extends to her high contrast in colour promo video, full of reds, blacks, whites and blues. She even picks up a keytar at one point! Watch the video below. Read Rebecca’s review of ‘The Dreaming Room’ through here. For more of TGTF’s coverage of Laura Mvula, go here.

Video of the Moment #2234: Biffy Clyro

By on Friday, 2nd December 2016 at 6:00 pm

Hard-working Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro are well known for going shirtless at their high octane shows. I mean, you wouldn’t want them to catch a cold, would you? Naturally, many of their (female) fans are fans of them going sans shirts at gigs, so they can admire all their many tattoos. Right?

Their latest music video may not be sweaty at all, but those world-famous tattoos are given an unusual close-up. Quieter and less confrontational (or even poppy) than what we’re used to from Simon Neil and co., ‘Re-arrange’, from their summer 2016 album ‘Ellipsis’, is a sweeter, softer side to the threesome we see far too little of. The lyrical message, too, is really rather appropriate for this holiday season as well. Watch it below. For more on Biffy Clyro on TGTF, go here.
