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.

Just an announcement for the next two weeks New Music Video Roundup, there’s not going to be one post because of the holidays and will resume in the new year. Happy Holidays everyone from Almost Anything Music.

New Music Video Roundup 27/11/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. 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!

Formed in 2018, the young Los Angeles-based duo Analog Party has distilled their love for grunge, classic rock, post-punk, and industrial music into both a debut EP Model Youth (released April 19, 2019) and single Absolution (released June 19, 2020). Comprised of singer/multi-instrumentalist Animaan Pathak and bassist Charles Horin, the band’s unique sound walks a fine line between fierce riff-based rock and moody, atmospheric textures, touching on both introspective and existential lyrical themes. Their latest single “One” is reminiscent of bands like Alice in Chains and Deftones — soaring vocal harmonies, viscous heavy guitars, and mammoth drums serve as an immense sonic backdrop to a brooding reflection on how to exist in an increasingly chaotic society.

“Although I wrote the song late last year, the lyrics feel even more relevant now. While the verses capture the overwhelming waves of anxiety, fear, and loneliness that stem from being a young person in this currently fucked up period of history, the chorus captures the dichotomy of hope and hopelessness for the future. The phrase ‘I am one’ could be viewed as a self-affirming and empowering statement just as much as it is a reflection on how helpless and alone one can feel in today’s society. For the video, we teamed up with our friends at Sleepless Format (Brandon Villalovos and Mike Williamson) to capture a simple performance with a bleak visual tone to match the vibe of the music.” explains vocalist / multi-instrumentalist Animaan.

Seconds up in this weeks roundup are the Pop-Rock Trio taking the world by storm in Waterparks whom have shared a video for ‘Lowkey As Hell’.

“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.”

Heading out on their latest video are Mayday Parade for ‘Out Of Here’.

To be more precise about what the song is written about, we have to turn to drummer Jake Bundrick:

“’I Can Only Hope,’ simply put, is about my father. He recently had some medical issues in Georgia and being that I live in California, I felt so far away. The song is about being terrified. It’s about that uncertainty whether someone will pull through something so difficult. It’s about the unknown that follows all of it and never forgetting the sounds or senses of the moment when you received the news.”

After some teasing on both artists part, Stand Atlantic and Mokita have released their brand new collaboration. 

‘I’m Sorry’ is a proper heart-tugging anthem detailing the regrets that exist inside of you when love breaks down wrapped in the soft patter of electronic drums and plucking of guitar strings. 

As Stand have said, it’s something a little different for them to release but it’s something that is very welcome indeed.

Snake eyes latest release has them share a video for ‘Bugged Out’.

This is a cut from the band’s just-released debut EP ‘skeletons’, which arrived last month.

Guitarist and vocalist Jim Heffy says: “This was an idea I’d had for many years and that had many different forms. There were other guitar parts, as it was originally written for two guitars, but when I decided snake eyes should be a one-guitar band, I changed up the track. I was having a really bad time with insomnia and when I did sleep I would have weird nightmares and that’s kinda what the song’s about. Scary stuff, I know.”

Next up we have Never Not Nothing with their latest effort, ‘Upbeat Deadbeat’.

The duo – who recently changed their name from Black Futures – are following up their recent drop, ‘Ritual Destruction’, released last month.

Space explains: “The song grew from this idea of an ‘Existential Price List’. A literal absurdist depiction of their being a cost to your every action as a living entity. Be it an environmental cost, personal cost, societal cost. We may be more aware than ever of the impact our actions have on our surroundings.

“It felt important to juxtapose ‘Survival Of The Nicest’ with a brutally honest depiction of my personal battle with a tormented predisposition towards loss and disaster. The trial of trying so hard to present positive meaning in the face of the ridiculous walls we’ve built around us in the shape of societal norms, rules and antiquated systems that celebrate detached, divisive, destructive leaders.

“But we are not alone, we can project our own meaning on to the world using art and music as a subversive tool to give each other the agency to change and explore new frontiers. We’re hoping for Survival of The Nicest!”

Skywalker have announced that they have signed to Pale Chord and they are celebrating in style. 

Vocalist Jay Kocera had this to say about the signing:

“We’re really excited to be partnering with Pale Chord for the release of our new album! Pale Chord share our vision and we wholeheartedly appreciate their unwavering support and commitment to growing the band globally.”

Their first celebration is the release of a new music video which has a lot of sentimentality for Jay as he explains here:

“[This is] a pure expression of depression, despair, and loneliness. It’s about pondering my earlier decisions to “go it alone” and only rely on myself, as is the contemporary mantra of extreme individualism. In the midst of it, I find loneliness, emptiness, cold, and gloom. I want to escape but find myself unable to do so. In the bridge, I turn to breathing meditation, a technique so cynically abused by the worst players of global markets and capitalism, and ultimately fail. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of love, acceptance and letting go of what is not necessary or wholesome.”

Smrtdeath, who was born Mike Skwark, has announced his new album ‘Somethjings Wrong’ due out November 20 via Epitaph. Now, Smrtdeath shares his latest single from the forthcoming record. ‘Don’t Love Me’ epitomizes what Skwark does best, making anthems out of the everyday. With an incredibly catchy, and powerful chorus, the song transcends the underground alternative rap scene and makes it an infectious earworm.

“’Don’t Love Me’ is about wanting someone you can’t have,” explains Skwark. “Kind of like meeting someone at the wrong time, or when you’re too focused on yourself to have time to pursue a connection anywhere else. It’s also about the misguided feelings people can have about someone based on a fleeting connection.”

Now for the penultimate this week. UK four-piece LOVEBREAKERS dropped its new single “Family Man” via Little Rocket Records. The song appears on their forthcoming debut LP “Primary Colours” out in Spring 2021.

Jack Perry of LOVEBREAKERS says, “The song tells a short story of someone who has just became a parent. It’s influenced from some close friends of mine who recently started their own families. It’s a “homage” to those guys. It’s that back and forth of “DAMN THIS SUCKS, BUT I WOULDN’T CHANGE IT FOR THE WORLD.” The verses are the negative side of things and the pre choruses/choruses are the positive side.”

And now it’s time for the final video this week and it’s emotional as hell. This is Charlie Simpson with his latest single, ‘I See You’

The track gives delicate piano sounds mixed with swirling strings that shield the beautiful melodies before an overwhelming finale sends shivers straight down your spine. It’s just wow. You have to check this out. do it.

It’s lovely basically and you can listen to it right here:
