Video(s) of the Moment #1275: The 1975

By on Sunday, 28th July 2013 at 6:00 pm

I waited until the weekend to post the new video from The 1975 because it’s got explicit content. Then again, what else would you expect about a song that’s titled ‘Sex’, right? Yes, there’s exposed boobs and a bare bum. But I think the explicit content they’re referring to is, ironically, drug use. But the actual action is pretty tame compared to what you see in Hollywood movies.

The new video is quite different from the original one the band from Manchester had posted 9 months ago, which I’ve also embedded below. For one thing, the original has punchier sound, which I found very cool that many fans who have seen the new video have pointed out. Who said no-one was paying attention to the music? Well done, 1975 fandom! And the black and white presentation of the original video better matches the band’s ethos, or at least what we were presented with when we started writing about them last summer and I wrote this Bands to Watch. Time will tell if major label production will make or break them…

The single version of ‘Sex’ will be released on the 26th of August, one week ahead of their self-titled debut album release on Dirty Hit / Polydor on the 2nd of September.

Video of the Moment #1274: Ghostpoet

By on Sunday, 28th July 2013 at 10:00 am

Mercury Prize-nominated artist Ghostpoet has a new single out on the 26th of August called ‘Cold Win’, and this is the promo video for it. Visually, it’s stunning, showing Icelandic landscapes when it’s not defying gravity. Watch it below.

Video of the Moment #1273: Franz Ferdinand

By on Saturday, 27th July 2013 at 6:00 pm

Excitement is building for Franz Ferdinand‘s return to record shops: their next album ‘Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Actions’ follows a week later, on the 26th of August. Looking more like an outtake of the Monkees than a music video, maybe that’s the point of this visual for ‘Love Illumination’. It’s supposed to be madcap. Or at least I hope that was the intention. Watch it below.

Video of the Moment #1272: The Dig

By on Saturday, 27th July 2013 at 10:00 am

The Dig‘s new video is for ‘Over You Again’, which features on the New York City band’s ‘Tired Hearts’ EP released earlier this year. It was filmed in the middle of desolation: in an Nevadan state park. But not all is lost. There are fireworks. (Oops. Was that a spoiler?) And ooh, the band show some fancy footwork in here too. Watch it below.

Video of the Moment #1271: Biffy Clyro

By on Friday, 26th July 2013 at 6:00 pm

It’s time you joined the cult of Simon Neil. (No joke. This statement was in the email I received from a PR this week about this very Biffy Clyro video.) ‘Victory Over the Sun’ is the Scottish trio’s next single, out on the 8th of September on 14th Floor Records, and here’s the promo. It starts rather un-Biffy before it truly gets going, but I imagine it will get the masses moshing at Reading and Leeds next month. Watch the video below.

Live Gig Videos: Alessi’s Ark, The Crookes and Lianne La Havas perform acoustic sessions for Tramlines 2013

By on Friday, 26th July 2013 at 4:00 pm

In what’s like a bunker – an acoustically sound bunker – at this year’s Tramlines, the festival hid a couple acts away to record some really lovely acoustic sessions for all of us to savour.

First, Alessi’s Ark, aka London singer/songwriter Alessi Laurent-Marke, performs a stripped back version of ‘The Rain’ from her album released this year on Bella Union, ‘The Still Life’.

Next, we’ve got local boys the Crookes performing ‘American Girls’, one of the singles off their 2012 Fierce Panda album ‘Hold Fast’. The choice of song seems rather appropriate given this Tweet from them yesterday! (Mmm yes indeed. The American half of our writership is very excited about this touring prospect.)

Finally, we have Lianne La Havas (pictured at top performing at Alexandra Palace in 2012) all by her lonesome with her acoustic guitar, playing ‘Tease Me’.
