Music Video’s 1/12/17

It’s Friday, so you know what it’s time for! Another round of music videos!

First up is DALES, the new project from Brian Dales of The Summer Set. He’s had a few tracks released this year but now, here’s his latest video for the track, Girls On Their Phones.

 

Next up is Eat Your Heart Out, featuring Movement’s Vocalist Patrick Miranda. It’s taken from the band’s upcoming EP ‘Mind Games’ and set to drop December 1st via Fearless Records.

 

Now, this next video is a bit glitchy but it really works. It’s a beautifully shot video and a great track from Movements. Here’s Daylily.

 

COming up is one of the best Pop-Punk tracks I’ve heard in a while. The video documents and shows some of the band’s life on the road, supporting the release of their full-length record, ‘The Good Life’. Check out their track Childish below.

 

Now we come to Lightcliffe, whose new video is a precursor to the band’s EP, For A While which dropped on November 24th via Failure By Design Records.

 

Now, this huge band recently stormed across the UK in support of their recent record, ‘Villains’. Now, Queens Of The Stone Age have dropped a new video ‘The Way You Used To Do’, which debuted on Apple Music a few months ago.

 

We’re going to go to an up and coming band next, in the form of Yonaka. They’re dreaming big and if anything shows, this video, Bubblegum has them shooting for the stars!

 

Now, this is the latest from legends Green Day. It comes off their compilation record, 2000 Light Years Away but this is a track which was written for the record. Here’s 2000 Light Years Away.

 

Now, Paramore are doing quite well for themselves. They’re still riding a high off their latest record, ‘After .Laughter’ which dropped earlier in the year and are set for a run of dates in the UK in January but if you’re not content with that, then check out this video for Fake Happy.

 

Finally are UK Pop-Punks kings Neck Deep. This is their latest video off their record, The Peace And The Panic which proves to be another one of their finest tracks to date. Here’s Parachute.

And that’s it for another round of music videos. Don’t forget to check back next Friday for another list of ten!

New Music Videos 24/11/17

It’s that time of the week again. Friday. But it’s more than that, it’s time for a new list of ten of the best recently released music videos. Let’s go!

First up is Anti-Flag and their old-school music video for their track, Liar. This is off their latest record, American Fall which is out now via Spinefarm.

 

Next up are rising giants Nothing But Thieves. Their latest record, ‘Broken Machine’ was a stellar effort from the group and their music video for Particles is nothing less than brilliant.

 

Now, we’ll go a little hardcore from the energetic band, Blood Youth. This music video is a look at what the shows of the band are like. They’re loud, hectic but absolutely brilliant! Here’s Parasite.

 

This next offering is from Hopeless Records band Drown In My Mind whose record, ‘Waves’ is set to drop February 2nd. Here’s Story Untold With Drown In My Mind.

 

Next, let go for some up and comers. This is a band’s first release since signing to Easy Life Records and this is the latest offering from Essex rockers Sun Arcana. Check out Wonderful below.

 

Next an unconventional track but which has been covered by non-other than Hayley Williams. It’s an amazingly animated cover track of the classic Tegan And Sara track ‘Nineteen’.

 

And we’ll keep things up with another cover but put a spin on the restriction for this video, it’s from Radio 1 Rocks the other earlier in the month when Neck Deep visited to play a few tracks. They have previously recorded a version of this but everyone loves a little bit of a Green Day cover. Check out the live version of Welcome To Paradise.

 

Pressing on, this is a huge video for this established band. It’s off their latest record, ‘The Spark’ and transports them to Outer Space! Well, not really, in the video, yes but now the band has donned their space suits yet again for their video for ‘The Sights’. It’s Enter Shikari.

 

Now this band isn’t usually intense but thanks to the fan reaction, it’s become one of their most important track in their short history to date! This is As It Is with a storming track off their second record, ‘Okay’ which is probably their best-written one to date! Here’s No Way Out.

 

Okay. Final track time. This band has been teasing a video for their latest track for a while now. You may have seen the Hashtags for Soon and listened to this one by Thirty Second To Mars. It’ll tie into a film project they launched earlier in the year for which they filmed in all fifty states in America where this video is a very small selection of the footage you see. This is the stellar video for Walk On Water.

 

And that’s it for another round of Music Videos! Check out to see another ten of the best next Friday! Also, I have a student radio show titled The Rock Show where I play some of the tracks seen here as well as bring people on so we can chat about different music topics as well as have general banter between us. Check me out every Friday 1PM – 4PM (UK Time). there’s also some amazing shows every day on the station which is all led by students who are utterly enthusiastic for Radio Production. Check us out via the following link.
