It’s that time of the week again. and the 2019 iteration of the weekly music video posts are back. Apologies this first post of the new year is coming late, but I have been very busy sorting out work arrangements and working on other things behind the scenes to sort new interviews and gallery posts for the blog.
First up are Liverpool alt group SPQR who have just released a video for ‘Slowly’, which was directed by their own drummer, Bex Denton as well as being scripted by frontman Peter Harrison.
Next up, we’re up in London for indie punks Cheerbeederz, who have a brand new animated video for a track off their debut EP, ‘Faceplant’ which is none other than ‘Staying Up Late’.
Next up are Senses Fail. The New Jersey punks have recently released a video for ‘Elevator To The Gallows’, which is the latest track lifted off last years release, ‘If There Is Light, It Will Find You’. This video involves the lengths the band members go to, to win Demi Lovato’s love.
Next, we’re off back to the UK for a band I’m quite conflicted about as of late, which is non-other than Bring Me The Horizon. The main reason is their sound is something which dissasociates past and present fans of the group but I say as long as it makes sense to them, then that’s all that matters. They’re finding themselves again as artists so everything can seem subjective to anyone who listens. With their upcoming record, ‘amo’ not too far from the release date, it only seems fitting that they have a new single and video out. The visual accompaniment is for ‘Medicine’. The visual accompaniment for the track is a spectacle of special effects which were created by animator Extraweg and art director Oliver Latta.
Now, we’re going for a track I haven’t heard before! I’m always on the lookout for new music and I’m always excited when I have friends recommend music to me. This comes in the form of Crystal Lake as they have dropped a fantastic new track, ‘Lost In Forever’ which mixes live and behind the scene footage for all to enjoy.
Another band on this weeks music video’s list with a new record on the horizon is Sheffield’s While She Sleeps. They’ve dropped a new teaser for the record in the form of their new release in ‘Haunt Me’.
The next track is an oldie for this band. In fact, I believe that this is the second ever track this band ever released. It’s been a fan favourite from iDKHOW and this is the video for ‘Choke’
The description of the video reads: “The recent discovery of this long forgotten performance was accompanied only by the following description: ‘Pop Time Live’ was a short-lived music television program that aired briefly in Eastern Europe in the early 1980’s. The show and its producers had hoped to capitalize on the then popular ‘Italo Disco’ movement, but audiences found its lack of authenticity objectionable.
Labeled “NOT FOR BROADCAST,” it’s believed that this particular iDKHOW performance never made it to air due to the band’s refusal to properly pantomime to their own song.”
A cover’s always good. Southampton have a cool new video out but there is a twist, it’s going to be a 360 degree video. It’s a cover taken off their EP, ‘Have Another…’ and it’s originally by Jimmy Eat World. The track? ‘The Middle.
Puppy fans don’t have to wait too long until their debut record, ‘The Goat’ drops in less than two weeks and which track have they selected to get fans even more excited for it? ‘Bathe In Blood’. You have to see it to believe it. Check it out below.
And lastly, we have Pop-rock newcomers Hot Milk as they are ready to make 2019 theirs with the release of their debut single, ‘Awful Ever After’. It had its premiere over on Daniel P. Carter’s The Rock Show on BBC Radio 1 and now, you can view the video of the track below.
And that’s it for the opener for the weekly music video posts for 2019! Check back next Friday at 4PM for another weekly dose of my favourite music videos.
