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. Kicking off things are the Dallas, Texas quartet Polyphia. If you’re into mind-blowing and weird visuals, then you’ll be into it.
We’re going to shift gears next for the quartet Trade Wind who’re giving a look into maintaining relationships when you’re a touring musician.
Vocalist Jesse Barnett has said: “The idea behind the video was to show the perspective of what it can be like to date a musician or specifically someone like me whose music and work overlap and are very time consuming—especially with so much required travel. It’s about the challenges of making a relationship work and being mindful of your partner even when you’re balancing a lot of things at once. We decided to have the video play out in reverse because I often find myself thinking, ‘I wish I could go back the beginning and do it differently.’”
Next, on the countdown are Cheltenham indie-pop Trio Polary who’ve recently debuted their new single, ‘Bad Love’ and they must love the 80’s if this video is anything to go by.
Now, the Texas rockers Postcards From The Moon are back with a new video off their latest EP, ‘Me Without You’ where the lyrics are quite a millennial anthem.
Caleb Rangel (Vocals) has said: “It’s about me not holding grudges for the way things ended and simply wishing her the best. I only want her to be happy. The lyrics were influenced by a Snapchat story. Another friend of mine was going through something similar and was posting photos with captions that really got to me. I used a lot of her original words as lyrics in this song, after getting the ‘okay’ from her of course.“
Moving across to Australia for some Pop-Punk, the band have recently dropped a new video for their single ‘Carousel’ which will be on their forthcoming record, ‘Florescence’ which will be released May 5th via Fearless Records.
Anyone for Vegas? That’s the location of our next band for Falling In Reverse as they’ve got a glitchy video for ‘Drugs’ that also features gore and Corey Taylor of Slipknot. This completes their trilogy of standalone singles which are preceded by ‘Losing My Life’ and ‘Losing My Mind’ which also continues the story which brings them all together.
Seeing as everyone’s been loving Our Last Night recently, how about a new video from them? Well, their new video is taken from their latest record ‘Let Light Overcome’ which has the band performing in the different rooms of a castle as it builds around them in the sky. Kinda trippy if you ask me. Check it out below.
John Floreani’s upcoming record ‘Sin’ is getting closer and closer to its release date but before it actually is released, there’s a teaser for said record in the form of ‘Echoes’.
On the track, Floreani has said: ‘Echoes’ is about the memories, love and emotion one leaves behind in a home after moving on. My partner and I lived in North Sydney for a while, and when she moved back to Texas, I had to go and clear the house of our furniture and belongings. As I walked through the house, I could see her dancing in the kitchen, drinking wine on the couch and inviting me to bed from the hallway.”
Who wants energy for their penultimate video? This next video is a live video from Bury Tomorrow and is taken from their most recent record of the same name, which was released last year. That’s right, it’s ‘Black Flame’.
And we’ve reached our final video for another week of the music video roundup. This last video is from the almighty Halestorm and has anyone wondered about how much of a badass Lzzy Hale really is? Well, check out their video for ‘Vicious’ below because you’ll see just what happens when their members are kidnapped and Lzzy has to come to their rescue and Kung Fu’s her way to their resue.
And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.
