It’s 4PM on a Friday! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. The first track is a cover from New Found Glory, and the track? ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman ut the video?? Erm… we’ll let you decide on it.
Now, following on the news of their debut record, ‘Fragments’, Sister Shotgun have had their lead single released and a brand new video produced by Mockingbird Studios. Vocalist Chloe Ozwell on the track has said:
“The song takes me back to a place where I was really vulnerable, but it’s about reclaiming my power. I hope it can serve as a reminder to keep pushing no matter what life throws at you.”
Moving to some Pop-Punk goodness for the next track, we have some Aussie newcomers on UNFD in the form of Yours Truly and this track is off their upcoming EP, ‘Afterglow’ set to be released on April 12th.
We’re going to switch things up again and go for some Post-Metal mayhem from Pleiades which will be the first cut from their upcoming EP and the follow up to their 2016 debut, ‘Symptoms Of The Human Being’.
Vocalist Andy Calderbank has said:
“‘All At Your Mercy’ is lyrically about control and the catharsis we feel when we finally give it up. As Humans, we welcome consequence, reluctantly accept responsibility and approach the future with caution. I guess you could describe it as Agnosiophobia or the fear of not knowing what will happen.”
And shifting the focus to some Emo Rockers, we’ll be having some Free Throw in this weeks list. They’ve recently released ‘Today Is Especially Delicious’ from their record ‘What’s Past is Prologue’ and there’s one thing which it does have a lot of. Fruit.
Next, Ahead of their tour across Europe, Japanese metalcore group Crystal Lake have given fans a taste of their music in the form of ‘Hail To The Fire’ which is just the latest track to off ‘Helix’ which saw an official release outside of their home country just last month.
Shall we try a different country for the next video? Ukrainian hitters Jinjer have a visual spectacle for us all in their live performance for ‘Teacher, Teacher’. This is the fourth single off their EP, ‘Micro’ and on the track, the band have said:
Moving back to Britain to the Alt Rock scene are the newcomers in Ruled By Raptors who were born from the ashes of Digits and the South East Northumberland band have some energy to give in the form of their track, ‘Time’.
For the penultimate video this week, I’ve chosen to go with Grandson. Recently the socially conscious artist has recently announced he’s playing a warm-up show for Slam Dunk Festival on May 22nd at London’s Underworld and May 23rd at The Glasgow Cathouse. Now though, he’s recently released a video for ‘Apologize’ which is the lead single off his most recent EP, ‘a modern tragedy, vol.2’.
And for the final post, we’re going for controversy, we’re going for industrial kings which can only point to one giant band, Rammstein. The German superstars recently announcing their long-awaited self-titled record which is set to be released on May 17th via UME / Spinefarm. With the announcement came with the music video which has caused controversy among Jewish leaders in Germany with eh commissioner of anti-Semitism in Germany saying: “I consider this a tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom,”
