Back in April, TGTF favourites Van Susans revealed the promo video for ‘Seagulls’, a tearjerker in the form of a montage of frontman Olly Andrews’ own family home movies. (We profiled it as a previous Video of the Moment back here.) They recently recorded a new live version of the single for Ont’ Sofa, who like Sofar Sounds prefer for their artists to perform in an intimate setting such as a living room, hence their name. In this particular video, Van Susans are playing in Stereo 92, a bar in Stoke Newington, in the northwest part of the London Borough of Hackney. Watch the emotional performance below.

Soul singer/songwriter Michael Kiwanuka will be releasing his second album this Friday. It’s the follow-up to his 2012 long player ‘Home Again’, released the same year Kiwanuka won the BBC Sound of 2012 poll. So it’s little wonder that the media and fans have been chomping at the bit for his new record. In celebration of the impending release, Kiwanuka has revealed this new live video of him and his band in session at the famed RAK Studios in the St. John’s Wood area of central London. In it, they perform ‘Cold Little Heart’, a cut from the new album. Kiwanuka says of the writing of this particular track:
‘Cold Little Heart’ was the first song I wrote for this album and it helped direct where the music was going. It’s really influenced by classic 60s and 70s British guitar bands like The Who and Pink Floyd, as well as by a lot of soul music, particularly songs like ‘Walk On By’ by Isaac Hayes. Those songs build really slowly and sometimes a vocal wont come in until 5 or 6 minutes but you don’t realise you’ve been sitting and listening for that long because all the instruments are so enticing and so beautifully arranged that they grab your attention and it doesn’t matter that you’re waiting until the vocals come in.
‘Love & Hate’ will be available starting this Friday, the 15th of July, on Polydor Records. For more articles on Michael Kiwanuka on TGTF, go here.
