New Music Video Roundup 18/12/20

Hello everyone welcome back to the New Music Roundup! We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released Music Video They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up this week, originally formed in the foothills of Colorado by college friends Jarvis Anderson (lead vocals, production), Sam Martin (vocals, keyboards), and Simon Katz (guitar), the band moved to Los Angeles after dropping out of school. Luis Rosiles flew from Jarvis’ hometown of Chicago to join the band as their drummer, and LA local Michael Bucher joined as bassist.

The band paid its dues in the glitter and grime of seedy Hollywood nightclubs before being adopted by Hermosa Beach, a Los Angeles sea-side community with a strong punk rock heritage, which identified with their synth-heavy, sweaty and wildly packed shows.

Of the new single, Anderson explains, “Cooler is told from the perspective of a guy that is set on winning over a girl who rejected him in the past. I love how the throwback synths and guitars rise as his story gathers fun, frenetic momentum.”

The result is an absurdly epic and feel-good song that seems serendipitous to the band’s actual comeback. The single somehow finds a way of being equal parts soothing and exciting; healing and rambunctious. Those who are fans of their debut Hit “In This City” will find “Cooler” just as irresistible, with its veracious hooks, and genre-bending, disruptive appeal.

Moving forward this week, cleopatrick have shared a video for their swaggering new single, ‘Good Grief’.

The release marks the Canadian duo’s – Luke Gruntz (guitar/vocals) and Ian Fraser (drums) – first single from their debut album, due via Thirty Tigers in 2021.

“This song marks the beginning of a new era for our band,” says frontman Luke Gruntz. “‘GOOD GRIEF’ is the first single off what will be our debut album. It’s here to strike fear in the hearts of our enemies, while simultaneously throwing an arm around our friends, introducing them to the new sound we have spent the last year-and-whatever totally obsessing over.

“‘GOOD GRIEF’ was born in quarantine. I found myself spiritually and physically locked in the very basement I had been romanticizing so deeply on our early records. We were bummed to say the least, but after a few weeks of video games and dog walks, a silver-lining began to emerge. I started writing again, and found myself feeling more self-aware, vulnerable, hungry, and vengeful than ever before.”

Now for the number three pick, a band we just can’t get enough of recently and that is the Texan pop-rock trio Waterparks with their latest single, ‘Lowkey As Hell’.

It’s another video from the band to be directed by frontman Awsten Knight, who also had this to say about the track.

“The song is a recap of the last year or so. It really describes what’s been going on and who I am. When I’m on stage, I’m a forward-facing, extroverted presence. At the same time, I’m also the biggest hermit ever. I just like to stay in, ignore my phone a lot, and write. I’m naturally reserved in my day-to-day life. The juxtaposition of loud materialism versus private emotion in that opening line really encapsulates the feeling I wanted to get across in the rest of the song.”

You can check out the video for ‘Lowkey As Hell’ below.

Moving to a little bit of Ska Punk in this weeks list, we have an offering in the form of Orange County, CA 7-piece Bite Me Bambi where they’ve dropped an EP, the aptly titled ‘Hurry Up and Wait’ (fitting for the year of the Covid), a collection of the singles the band has released in 2020, plus an exclusive bonus track titled “This Love is Dead.”

“This collection of songs represents the origin of Bite Me Bambi. Essentially they were the first initial songs Tahlena and Brian wrote before and while the band was forming. We feel that this collection is a good representation of where the band was in 2019-2020 and as always we are happy to put them out so the fans can have all the singles in one EP.”- Bite Me Bambi

How’s two Ska Punk tracks sound? Now we have in the form of Californian heroes Goldfinger for ‘Wallflower’, the lead single to come from the band’s recently released full-length album, ‘Never Look Back’.

Discussing the video, frontman John Feldman had this to say.

“We had such a fun time making this video. I was stoked I was able to use my house in my backyard, so I barely had to travel! Hahaha! Caleb (Alvarez) did a fantastic job directing, we’re very excited for you all to see!”

You can check out the video for ‘Wallflower’ below.

Switching up genres right now, there’s the French metalcore troupe LANDMVRKS with ‘Lost In A Wave’, the latest track to come from their forthcoming similarly titled third album, ‘Lost In The Waves’.

You can check out ‘Lost In A Wave’ and its video below.

Electronica anyone? After announcing the release of his second EP titled “Continued Survival”, the Italian-born musician and producer Souvlaki unveils another piece of this new work, which was preceded by the single “7LUNGS” (featuring Slim Gong) at the beginning of November.

“Isolation” features Deborah Grandi on vocals and is presented with a stop motion video directed by Souvlaki himself, along with Carlo Rodella and Nicola Nolli.

The musician comments: “This is the first song I started working on for this new EP, the one that set the whole songwriting process in motion. Deborah’s vocal lines were written almost on the spot, we found them when we first listened to the base in the practice room and they immediately seemed to work well in the song.

The lyrics match the story of the video, the central theme is people’s incommunicability, and the song title seems to sum it up quite well.
I have to admit that I struggled to finish the arrangements of “Isolation”, but I perceived its great potential right away and I didn’t want to set it aside. Thanks to Simone Piccinelli, who contributed to the production of the EP, I got to find the balance between all the elements in this song.

I am satisfied with the outcome and I hope listeners will appreciate it too; personally, I like the atmosphere it evokes, that slightly “retro” touch; it plays along within a mix between darkness and positive feelings.”

The EP “Continued Survival”, produced by Souvlaki and Simone Piccinelli at La Buca Recording Club and mastered at Woodpecker Mastering will contain 6 tracks, including the single “Isolation” and the previously released single “7LUNGS” and will be available on all main digital platforms starting January 15th.

Fresh from the announcement of their upcoming album The Battle At Garden’s Gate, Greta Van Fleet have just unveiled an incredibly huge new video for their latest single Age Of Machine.

The epic clip – which was in fact co-directed by Greta Van Fleet and Matthew Daniel Siskin – addresses ​“the rumbling beauty around us, but leaves the final significance to the viewer”, so you’re going to have to pay close attention (and possibly even take notes?!) to work out what it all means.

The band’s second studio album, ‘The Battle At Garden’s Gate’, is set for release on April 16th 2021 via Lava Records/Republic Records/EMI.

Time to smooth things out, at least for one video right now and that is with Cancer Bats. The band have an acoustic EP on the way, and have ‘Deathsmarch To A New Acoustic Beat’ in support of it.

This is a stripped down reworking of their song ‘Deathsmarch’, which comes from the band’s 2008 album, ‘Hail Destroyer’.

You can check out ‘Deathsmarch To A New Acoustic Beat’ and its video below.

And lastly this week we have the side project of Will Gould of Creeper and Matt Reynolds of Skylar which can only be Creeper. The title? ‘Throat’.

Will explains: “Being that ‘Throat’ is a song about obsession, we thought it would be a cool idea to base the video for the song loosely around Stephen King’s book ‘Misery’.

“We once again brought in Olli Appleyard of Static Dress to make the film, but we changed a few details in the story to better fit SALEM. The key two being that it now takes place in a boudoir with padded walls, and that at the end of our story, everyone dies.”

And that’s it for another week of a roundup of the best new Music Videos out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

New Music Roundup 18/12/20

Hello everyone welcome back to the New Music Roundup! We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up this wee are Frank Iero and his band, The Future Violence with the second track from their upcoming EP, ‘Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place’ set to be released on January 15th 2021 via UNFD.

This is just a true Punk track with raw vocals as well as blaring drums to match.

Next up this week we have the Bristolian pack Superlove with their standalone, raucous track “Not Me! Not You!”.  The track, which follows their recently released brand new self-titled EP also comes in support of Rude Records 20th Anniversary.

“This single represents a pure burst of energy that we wanted to release having been sat around for most of the year.” says singer Jacob.  “It’s a song about people not having a clue what’s going on in the world. It’s a step away from our last few singles from our recent EP & it just felt right to throw it out into the world and watch the reaction seeing as though we can’t go and play some live shows off the back of the EP’s release. We recorded it in the first week of the UK’s 2nd lockdown and it’s been the quickest turnaround for a release yet, we are so excited of the prospect of hopefully playing it live one day to a proper rowdy room.”

Continuing in recent form for the Sweedish Trio Normandie, the latest effort, ‘Atmosphere’, is the latest choice of single to come from the band’s upcoming record, ‘Dark & Beautiful Secrets’ which is set for a release via Easy Life Records on February 19th 2021.

Vocalist Philip Strand had this to say of the track.

“One in five people in Europe say they experience feelings of loneliness, and during the pandemic many more feel anxious and isolated. With ‘Atmosphere’, we wanted to highlight the issue of loneliness online and how hard it can be to reach out for real connections. With the video we tried to focus on the lyrics, and let the visuals reflect on the emotions in the song.”

We’ve been waiting on some Pale Waves news for a while and we got it with the first track ‘Change’ and now this is a little bit of a different track to say the least with the Indie influence mixed with Avril Lavigne vibes, we have ‘She’s My Religion’ which is off their upcoming record, ‘Who Am I?’ which will be released via Dirty Hit on February 12th 2021.

Now I had to choose this track for the final pick this week and that is David Hasselhoff.

The Hoff has teamed up with Austrian duo CueStack for an epic single and sci-fi-tinged video, Through The Night, with the band previously revealing of how it all came about: ​“The project started in 2018 and many demos were made, many meetings were held and what seemed like an impossible idea slowly turned into a reality. David finally recorded the track with us, CueStack, in 2019 in Vienna and we also shot a cinematic music video together.”

And that’s it for another week of a roundup of the best new tracks out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

Dave Grohl Talks Why Foo Fighters Are Releasing New Music During The Pandemic

The upcoming tenth record by the Foo Fighters, ‘Medicine At Midnight’ has been in the works for a while now and Dave Grohl has been talking on how the release could’ve been delayed further where the band decided the released was needed because they needed it, despite the Coronavirus pandemic.

The band dropped the single, ‘Shame Shame’ with the full record coming in February 2021. Speaking to New York’s Q104.3  (via Blabbermouth), Dave says the band spent ​“months” deciding what to do about releasing it in these strange times, having finished the album earlier this year.

“We started [recording] this, I think, in maybe September last year, and we were finished by January, February,” he says. ​“We were totally done – mixed, mastered, ready to go. Artwork was done; T‑shirts were being made; equipment was on the trucks – we were good to go. And then everything just kind of shut down. Then it was months and months of trying to decide when we would release it. ​‘Okay, do we just put it out now?’ ​‘No, let’s wait. Maybe we’ll see what happens.’ A month later, ​‘Do we put it out now?’ ​‘No, let’s wait.’ ”

The frontman continues: ​“So, six or seven months went by, and I’m like, ​‘We make this music for people to hear. We don’t just make it so that we can go hit the road. We write these songs so people can enjoy them and sing along, whether it’s in their kitchen by themselves with a bottle of Crown Royal or in a stadium bouncing around, singing the choruses.’

“So I was like, ​‘Right now, more than ever, people need something to lift their spirits, something to give them some feeling of relief or escape.’ I was like, ​‘We’ve gotta put it out. Let’s put it out right now.’ I don’t know when we’re gonna hit the road, but we need to give the music to the people, ​’cause that’s why we make it.”

MGK: I Don’t Think I’d Release A Record As Colson Baker

Earlier this year, Machine Gun Kelly switched things up in his music, achieving the most success with his record, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’. His showed a brand new side to the musician, with it under his MGK namesake.

In a segment on CBS This Morning ahead of Play On: A Benefit Concert, MGK opened up to Anthony Mason about the different sides to his personality, responding to the question, ​“Would you ever wanna do an album as Colson, or not?” by stating, ​“I don’t think so. No. That guy is a way different guy. They don’t get along at all, dude.”

He continues that he is finding a balance between various ​‘ledges’.

“I’m trying to get away from those ledges; it’d be nice to be on a plateau,” Machine Gun Kelly ponders, before interrupting himself: ​“No it wouldn’t, I don’t like that. I always wanna be on a ledge, man. I think you’re always gonna be more aware, and more exciting and excitable when you’re about to fall. As long as I keep my balance, I prefer to just be on that ledge.”

“You’re comfortable being uncomfortable,” responds Anthony.

“Yeah,” MGK agrees. ​“That’s how art should be.”

Have Paramore Hinted At New Music?

While Hayley Williams has been releasing new solo material in 2020 in her debut record, ‘Petals For Armor’, fans of Paramore have been suspecting she’s been working on new material with the band.

Earlier this week, the band took to Twitter to hint at this saying that they don’t want their fans woken up ​“just yet”. If the rumors do turn out to be true, it’ll be the first release in three years since their 2017 record, ‘After Laughter’.

The rumor mill started because Jimmy Fallon joked on The Tonight Show that Taylor Swift keeps released record after record in 2020, with her second being recently released in the last month. After receiving more notifications, he then joked “Paramore just released a new record called Taylor Swift,” with it coming full circle.

Retweeting the video, the band wrote, ​“jimmy, don’t wake the pmore stans just yet”, sending their entire fanbase into a frenzy over those two final words: ​“just yet”. That’s got to mean something is on the way soon, surely?!

Earlier this year, Hayley reiterated the fact that her solo venture did not mean the end for Paramore. ​“I can’t deny there’re frontwomen in history who went solo and didn’t go back, so that’s where I have to trust that the band knows I’m not looking for greener grass,” she said.
