Video of the Moment #2909: Gengahr

 
By on Thursday, 8th November 2018 at 6:00 pm
 

Back in the March, Gengahr released their album ‘Where Wildness Grows’. In their effort to keep pushing boundaries, back in September, they released one-off single ‘Atlas Please’. It’s interesting in itself simply for who ended up producing it: Jack Steadman, frontman of Bombay Bicycle Club (you remember them). Although the single’s accompanying promo video has its moment of weirdness, as you might expect from this band based on previous visual efforts, I give them full props for including some truly stunning landscapes here. Watch the video for ‘Atlas Please’ below. Our full archive of Gengahr can be accessed through here.

 

Live Gig Video: Hatchie performs ‘Adored’ at Seattle’s Barbarosa

Australian dream pop singer/songwriter Hatchie, aka Harriette Pilbeam, has recently released a live video performance of her recent single ‘Adored’, from her show at Barbarosa in Seattle on the 19th of September. Filmed and edited by Trevor Crump, the video captures the essence of the song in live performance, including lighting, sound, and late night ambience. See it for yourself at the bottom of this page.

‘Adored’ features on Hatchie’s recent EP ‘Sugar & Spice’, available now via Double Double Whammy. Speaking of the song itself, Pilbeam says “‘Adored’ is a song that’s been floating around for a few years now, so I’m really excited it’s finally found its place with this release. I’ve been playing it live since my first show but didn’t feel it fit on either my [previous] EP or album. It’s about always wanting more than what you have, even if it’s perfect.”

Speaking of live performances, those of you on the UK side of the pond can catch Hatchie live at the beginning of next year, when she opens for The Vaccines in January and February 2019. You can find a full listing of Hatchie’s upcoming live dates on her official Facebook. TGTF’s previous coverage of Hatchie is right back here.

There was a whole lot of buzz around good friends and rhythmic pop duo IDER at SXSW 2018. They had recently signed to Glassnote Records and loads of folks were interested in seeing them perform Saturday night at the BBC Radio 1 and the UK’s Department of International Trade-sponsored showcase at the British Music Embassy. IDER’s debut album is slated for release in 2019, and they’ve released another preview of the upcoming LP. ‘Mirror’ in its promo video form is presented in a split screen, with Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville spending time apart in the two halves of the screen before being reunited at its conclusion. Watch the video for ‘Mirror’ below. For more on this intriguing duo here on TGTF, use this link.

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Sam Lewis will make his first trip to the UK in over two years at the beginning of 2019, with a list of live headline dates announced for February and March. Ahead of those shows, Lewis is slated to play at AmericanaFest UK at the end of January, presumably featuring songs from his fantastic recent LP release ‘Loversity.’ If you haven’t listened to that album yet, I highly encourage it; you can check out its second single ‘Natural Disaster’ at the bottom of the page.

Video of the Moment #2907: Lokki

 
By on Tuesday, 6th November 2018 at 6:00 pm
 

Earlier this year, Glass Animals guitarist and keyboardist Drew MacFarlane released music under the name Lokki. The ‘Cirrhi’ EP is out now on Wolf Tone, Paul Epworth’s own label that has also released Glass Animals’ music. The EP includes the song ‘Breathe a Breath for Me’, which I wrote about here.

MacFarlane now has a new double A-sided single, ‘High’ / ‘On Our Own’, both having started out life as arrangements for a string quartet by the classically trained artist. ‘High’ has been put to life, so to speak, with a unique stop-motion video by Tayo Kopfer, composed of photo stills of MacFarlane, layered on with hand-drawn illustrations. The press release describes the song as reflecting an “acceptance of imperfection and temporality”. If only that thinking was easy to roll with! Watch the video for ‘High’ below. Is a debut album on its way? Let’s hope so.

Northern Irish art-rock singer/songwriter Joshua Burnside has recently announced a lengthy run of tour dates in England for the end of this year, as well as a pair of dates at home in Belfast to bookend the English dates. This tour is in preparation for Burnside’s upcoming EP release ‘Wear Bluebells In Your Hat If You’re Goin’ That Way’, which is a “reconstituted and embellished” deluxe version of his 2013 EP ‘If You’re Goin’ That Way’. The new EP is due out on the 11th of January 2019 via Quiet Arch. You can take a listen to its blues-tinged lead single ‘Black Dog Sin’ just below the tour date listing.

On 3rd December, Burnside will officially begin his University ‘Coffee House’ Tour, which includes, as you might expect, stops at University venues around England.
