Music Video Roundup 24/07/20

Hey everyone. First off, I have to say apologies on my end for no New Music or Music Video Roundup last week, life got in the way of things for me when I got some more hours at my regular job which added to my other responsibilities. But now, we’re back to normal with things.

But now, we’re back! Welcome back to another weekly Friday post of ten of the best recently released music videos and sometimes a little information that comes with them! 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 (videos)!

First up this week is the Pop-Punk Songstress herself, Bronnie. Keeping herself busy down in lockdown, there’s been some shooting, editing and more which culminate in the video for ‘R U The Same’.

Heading over to Hertfordshire for The Hunna, the band have released a video for ‘I Wanna Know’, which is a track from their upcoming record, ‘I’d Rather Die Than Let You In’.

Ryan Potter (Vocals, Guitar) says:

“‘I Wanna Know’ is up there for us with one the best songs we’ve ever written, it’s high octane all the way through and doesn’t let up, it’s kind of our Motley Crüe moment on the album. we played it on tour before we’d even started recording the album from a demo we did with Feldy and it was insane every time! Its story comes from a place of extreme lust and infatuation with someone, wanting to know how they tick, what the feel, what they believe, wanting to be apart of anything they do, almost so much you could literally blow up.”

Next, heading onto a newly fresh band who’ve recently signed onto Hopeless Record, we have Point North! They’re gearing up for the release of their record, ‘Brand New Vision’ which is set to be released on August 17th 2020.

For the time being though, here’s a visual for the track, ‘Personal’.

Heading over to the heavy hitting Flordia duo, Bloodbather next, we have a new track titled as ‘Void’ which is expected to feature on the band’s yet to be announced debut record.

Kuler Millo (Vocals / Bass) says:

“‘Void’ is about fixation on a person and perceiving how good they have it. And wanting to wear their skin metaphorically and literally after observing them (stalking them) for an undisclosed period of time.”

Moving back across the pond for the latest Inklings incarnation, we have the third single off the upcoming EP, ‘Is This Who You Are?’.

Kemp comments on the track and the message below.

“‘Like It Or Not’ is about losing people. You know when you have that friend that meets someone and seems to just disappear? That feeling. This is the third single now from the EP and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve also got some other tasty collaborations I’ve been doing with some friends coming soon too. All systems go”

How about some Welsh Pop-Punk now? You know who we’re on about! That’s the faves from Neck Deep who have released the single, ‘I Revolve (Around You)’ comeplete with the animated stylings.

This is off their upcoming record, ‘All Distortions Are Intentional’ which is set to be released on July 24th via Hopeless Records.

Ben Barlow (Vocals) has said:

“‘I Revolve (Around You)’ is a song about love on a planetary scale. It is one big metaphor, comparing love to the movement of the planets. Picturing love on that scale really makes everything else seem small and insignificant. The song comes at a point of epiphany on the record- the realisation that despite life’s trials and tribulations, love conquers all.

Musically it’s hard hitting and impactful, and actually features one of my favourite ever sections in a Neck Deep song where I got to channel my inner Tom Delonge, which for a song about space I feel is pretty fitting! It’s the first time we’ve done a full animated video and we’re so stoked on how it came out, the amazing team at Remembers in France did a beautiful job embodying the feeling of the lyrics.”

Checking into Japan for the next pick in the form of Man With A Mission. They have ‘Rock Kingdom’ for the world which is one of the new tracks from their recent greatest hits record, ‘Man With A “Best” Mission’.

The video features Tomoyasu Hotei, whom for those if you don’t know, is a legendary guitarist and he filmed his appearance from his London home who’ve said the following on the track.

“Man With A Mission and I got to collaborate on my song (‘Give It To The Universe’), and we got along so well they asked me in return to collaborate on one of their songs. I’m super excited that the song turned out to be a very powerful track! It was lonely filming the video on my own, but hopefully I’ll get to rock out with the wolves very soon!”

Moving to the band ides now. We’re eaergerly awaiting their upcoming third record, ‘Ultra Mono’, set to be released on September 25th 2020 via Partisan Records.

Frontman Joe Talbot says:

“‘A Hymn’ is a hymn that rejoices in the sinister flesh-eating virus of the pedestrian. It sings the tune of normal’s teeth sinking into your neck as you sleep stood up with your eyes open. Amen.”

Taking to Sacramento for the penultimate pick in the form of Dance Gavin Dance. They have an animated video for ‘One In A Million’, the latest cut off their recently released ‘Afterburner’ EP which sees the bull character off their album release living a stressful work life who’s then transported intot the 2D world.

And now for our final pick in the week’s video, we have the enigmatic, larger than life and utterly fantastic Yungblud.

He’s been low on the radar for the last few weeks in preparation for the first release single ‘Weird’ a few months ago. The video for the latest cut ‘Strawberry Lipstick’ is weird, wonderful and fits right into that Yungblud spectrum. Enjoy!

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

New Music Video Roundup 18/06/20

We’re back! We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos and sometimes a little information that comes with them! 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 (videos)!

We’re going acoustic for our first pick this week with The Amazons with the UK tour video for ‘Mother’.

Matthew Thomson has said on the track:

“This video encapsulates everything we love about being in a band. Performing live is in our blood. When we tour, the music evolves.

“It was such a fun process looking back on our UK tour with Phoebe Fox as she put the video together. We hope we can join our fans again soon, and safely.”

Keeping things a little light for the next pick this week is the phenomenal Machine Gun Kelly. The other month, the release of ‘Bloody Valentine’ saw him collaborate with none other than Travis Barker where now an acoustic version has been released. This version of the track sees him playing guitar, all the while looking out at a sunset over LA.

Bloody Valentine is the first off MGK’s upcoming record, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, which is set to be released on July 17th via Bad Boy / Interscope Records where the narrative will “revolve around a complex and seductive love story”.

Heading for British shores for the next pick of this week’s roundup, we have Luzzy Farrall.

This latest cut from her record, ‘Bruise’ is the track ‘Okay’. And it’s a home made video for this one to!

On the track, here’s what Lizzy said:

“‘Okay’ is what I’d call the interlude on the album. The lyrics are very personal and the performance on the track is very raw. The song itself is based around being stuck in your own head and being forced, because of life situations, to be independent but also discovering whilst doing so, just how much self-hate is actually present. This is also probably more relevant to me now than when I wrote the song.”

Moving to Remo Drive for our next pick of the week, and with the band’s third record, ‘A Portrait Of An Ugly Man’ released today, they released this video for ‘A Flower And A Weed’ just a few days in advance for its release.

Following the premiere over on Triple J, the Aussie powerhouses Hands Like Houses have a new cut in the form of ‘Space’.

This is the second release of material since their 2018’s ‘-Anon’, following on from the track, ‘Headspace’ which came out in March of this year.

Trenton Woodley (Vocals) has said:

“It’s weird to think that we wrote this song about emotional isolation and this sense of claustrophobia before any of this crazy year had gone down. It’s about this emotional collage of situations where I felt like I was going through the motions, grappling with exhaustion, trying to do the right thing but still coming up short of other people’s expectations… it was really important to me that the lyrics carried the weight of what I was singing about without getting caught in the specifics.

I wanted it to feel tired, but not hopeless. I wanted it to feel worn out, but not ready to give up yet. I didn’t want to sound like I’d stopped trying, I just wanted it to feel like coming out of a long silence to say, “Be patient, I can get this right. I just need a little more faith, a little trust and some space to get myself back together.””

Here’s some new Pop-Punk from those lads you either love or hate, Neck Deep!

Following on from the release of their new track ‘Fall’, they have a new video where they team up with a lot of skaters including Cordano Russell, Alex Dechuna, Roxana Howlett and more! There’s some skateboarding footage (of course) and some tour footage back from when they actually could.

Ben Barlow says:

“COVID-19 has made shooting videos all the more challenging. So, we looked at some of the things we love most: fucking around on tour and skateboarding. We decided to reach out to skaters that we have met along our touring journey, that we believe deserve some recognition, and give them a platform to display their amazing talents.

We’re switching things up to a heavy track now! The giants Machine Head have dropped a double digital single (wait. Is that even a thing?) where the double single suggests the two tracks act as protest anthems which were written after the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

Here’s the video for the a side track ‘Stop The Bleeding’ which features Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach.

Second to last video now for this week’s roundup pick and we have the British singer/songwriter Inklinks (whom is none other than the ex- Fearless Vampire Killers frontman Kier Kemp!) as he lifts another track off his upcoming ep, ‘Is This Who You Are?’.

Here’s what Kemp has said:

“‘Dizzy’ is a song for everyone that ever felt that they needed a new start. Sometimes it can feel like things change and you’re never going to be the same… but ultimately the song is about combating that idea head on. You’ve got this.”

‘Is This Who You Are?’ is set to be released on August 28th 2020 via Marshall Records.

I had to choose this track as the last one and you’ll know why when you see the name. This is Chester Bennington’s pre Linkin Park band, Grey Daze. The track, ‘B12’ is off their upcoming release ‘Amends’ which will feature vocals Chester actually recorded before his tragic passing.

There’s also an appearance from Korn’s Munky and Head.

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos. If you have any suggestions for me to check out, be sure to send an email or message us via the socials on Facebook or Twitter!

On the lead single, ‘Sertraline’, Kemp has said:

“I wrote this song about my ‘love affair’ with Sertraline, which is an anti-anxiety drug. In 2017 I burned myself out and the result was GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder). It basically meant that my body started producing too many stress hormones and everything went haywire, after coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t imminently dying doctors prescribed me Sertraline. It made me better and now a few years on this song was almost a goodbye to it”.

And you can listen to ‘Sertraline’ below.

 

Pre-orders can be made via Google Play, and Transistor Music.

Music Video Roundup 01/05/2020

It’s back for another week! We have another roundup of ten music videos which have been recently released and they’re always some of my favourites! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another so there’s a little something for everyone here but enough talk, let’s get down to things.

First up we have trippy vibes with Silverstein featuring Princess Nokia in ‘Madness’ which is taken off their new record, ‘A Beautiful Place To Drown’, released via UNFD. Think of it as the very best of things with things just taken to a whole new level with the visuals.

 

Seconds up and off a recent release of Derek Zanetti aka The Homeless Gospel Choir with ‘This Land Is Your Landfill’ which dropped via A-F Records / Hassle Records. Now though, the man has a new video for us in the form of the track, ‘Don’t Compare’. A little Folk Rock with one of the kindest and best people in rock.

 

Now, how about we move to a few quarantine video picks and to the Ska Punk’s Goldfinger? I’m quite interested in these quarantine videos to see what people can come up with but nevertheless, it’s fantastic to see so many different bands releasing their videos in this way. Check out this video for ‘Get What I Need’, which is taken from Goldfinger’s seventh studio record, ‘The Knife’ which is out now.

 

Keeping things in order for a  two in a row style for the moment for our next video. Some bands have great ideas but then Coronavirus happened. Now, Super Whatevr have made a funny snapshot of a challenge set on themselves: making a music video while in social distancing.

Check out ‘Melancholyism’ below.

 

Is this man never smiling? He always seems to have one on him. 🙂

Yungblud has a brand new video for his single, ‘Weird’ out into the world now. This was filmed whilst in isolation, adhering to Social Distancing where the musician’s being belted around everywhere and it’s such a good track as well!

 

Next, we’re moving across to Connecticut for something a little more alternative now as Lakeshorehave a new release which is the lead single from their 2017 debut EP, ’41’.

Guitarist Ben Lionetti has said:

“The song ‘History’ is our first single as a band, it was always a song that resonated deeply with us. So during this quarantine period we wanted to re-imagine it in a cool and fun way that still captures the deep emotion within the song.”

 

Moving back to the UK for our next video, we are going to a different kind of extreme and we have newcomers to the deathcore genre in Nottingham based band Azazel. Directed by the people over at Loki Films, i is the second track from the bank since their new vocalist, Tristan Hill came into the fold.

On the track ‘Cocoon’, the band have said:

“‘Cocoon’ is a transitional period, a time of waiting, growing, becoming something bigger. In the case of this song, it is a fictional story of a being which resides within the centre of the earth, waiting to rise up and just live, but for that to happen, life on earth as we know it would end. The song is a soundtrack of the creature’s slow movement towards the surface.”

 

Keeping things heavy for just another moment, Newcastle based up and comers have a video track off their debut record, ‘How Well Do You Really Know Yourself’ released into the world as of today.

The band might be unavailable to make a video at the moment so instead, the band have compiled some live footage from a headliner in their own hometown! Get ready for some Slow Motion High Octane energy!

 

It’s been a little quiet in the camp for the ex-Fearless Vampire Killers frontman Kier Kemp and his project, ‘Inklings’ but now he’s back with his band on the latest single, ‘Sertraline’.

On the track, Kier has said:

“I wrote this song about my ‘love affair’ with sertraline, which is an anti-anxiety drug. In 2017 I burned myself out and the result was GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder). It basically meant that my body started producing too many stress hormones and everything went haywire, after coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t imminently dying doctors prescribed me sertraline. It made me better and now a few years on this song was almost a goodbye to it.”

 

And lastly, we have come to the group who are dominating at the moment, Pvris. the band have shared a brand new video for their single, ‘Gimme A Minute’ which sees the group embarking in the Science Fiction genre which blends 3D animation with live-action footage of the band. The track is taken off their upcoming record, ‘Use Me’ which was originally set to be released today but now due to circumstances beyond their control, it will be released July 10th 2020.

And that’s it for another week of the music video roundup! Be sure to check back next week for another look at the latest music video releases from the best bands around and who knows? Maybe you’ll find your new favourite band on that list.
