Video of the Moment #1587: Slow Club

Slow Club released their third album ‘Complete Surrender’ earlier this month; read Carrie’s review of the album here. The next single from the new LP will be ‘The Pieces’, out on the 25th of August on Caroline International. The promo starts out simple enough, showing the exterior of a house in what appears to be on a sleepy street. But then the makeup application begins and…well, watch below and see what happens.

Previous TGTF coverage on the Sheffield duo is right this way.

German classical meets techno trio Brandt Brauer Frick have now shared this fantastic performance video they did for online electronic music mag Resident Advisor. In what comes across as a pretty tense performance of ‘Bommel’, with two band members hanging over masses of sequencers and at times in each other’s faces, this video will challenge your notion that electronic producers are boring live. Watch the video below.

Bands to Watch #303: We the Living

Words by Jess Mason

Let’s play a game, shall we? Let’s play how many bands you can count whose name starts with the word ‘we’. We Are the In Crowd, We Are the Ocean, We Are Scientists, the list goes on. Now, you may not have heard of them yet, but I reckon there’s one more band that are about to get themselves on this memorable list for all good reasons.

We the Living are a five-piece alt rock band who threw themselves onto the new music scene with their debut gig in Sheffield’s Royal Standard a few Saturdays back. I know when you hear the word debut, you tend to expect a bunch of stubbly dudes wailing along to covers of Green Day and having about as much stage presence as a bunch of bananas. But this time, it was definitely not the case.

Straight out onto the stage, We the Living’s frontman Nick Phillips – looking like Russell from Disney’s Up grew up and stole Don Broco’s stylist – stares into the crowd and yells ‘We are We The Living, and our songs don’t have titles’. Boom, and straight into song number one.

What they lack in ability to name songs, they certainly make up in talent. These boys packed so much energy into the performance, they genuinely made ‘that pub between the 24-hour gym and the rental car place’ seem like a much, much bigger venue.

Now we all know that your first time isn’t perfect, but We the Living damn well know how to carry on playing in times of crisis. Not even stopping when guitarist Tom Gammon’s amp cut out, or when Tom’s D string snapped mid-riff (all in one song, poor guy), and they even managed to get through a song while kicking the bass drum back into place as it was shimmying off the stage and into the poor guy’s face in the front row.

This band is fun, they’re new and they’re definitely a band to watch if you’re into the likes of Mallory Knox, Lower Than Atlantis and that fast-paced smooth vocal area of alt rock.

Get these boys to Rock City. But before then, you can find out for yourself what the fuss is all about: catch We the Living at The Frog in Worksop, Nottinghamshire on the 13th of September.

Video of the Moment #1586: The Drums

Last week, I wrote out my thoughts about ‘Magic Mountain’, which marked The Drums‘ return to the music biz. There is now a self-directed, monochrome promo to go with the song, but unfortunately the visuals, which include an Excalibur-like sword and diamonds sat in dirt, do nothing to shed light on what ‘Magic Mountain’ is actually about. Maybe you can glean something more? Watch the video below.

Video of the Moment #1585: The Gaslight Anthem

Seeing that their fans are surely chomping at the bit in anticipation of their album ‘Get Hurt’ to be released next month, New Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem have now revealed the promo video for the title track. Stereogum make a good point that this song sounds “Killers-eque” and I would agree: Brian Fallon is sounding more Brandon Flowers than ever. Is this a newer, less brash version of the Gaslight Anthem we’re about to hear from? Have a watch of the video below.

The Gaslight Anthem tour the UK in November; all the details are here.
