Rising Aussie indie-pop stars Last Dinosaurs have shared the latest video from their excellent debut album, ‘In A Million Years.’
It’s for new single ‘Andy,’ and features a sparse white set brightened by random splashes of colour and geometric shapes. There’s also a stack of close-ups on their Converse High-Tops.
Harlem rap prodigy A$AP Rocky has dropped another impressive video, this time for his Schoolboy Q collab ‘Brand New Guy.’
Taken from Rocky’s recent ‘LIVELONGA$AP’ mixtape, it’s got all the hallmarks that we’ve come to know and love from Rakim – running a fine line between his smooth, effortless rhyming and the deep, booming baritone vocals, under a customarily thick, druggy, hazy beat.
Directed by A$AP himself, and full of city... read more
The Temper Trap have just released a new video for single ‘Trembling Hands’. It’s a beautiful grainy, filmic video full of light flares, muted tones and soaring acrobats. You’ll notice the video has a visual spaciousness, with plenty of wide-angled shots revealing sunsets, beachside cityscapes and a large gymnastics warehouse space. The roominess of the clip is well suited to the track, which is an understated soaring song filled with a sense of yearning.

Of all the shit that has ever been cray, this is perhaps the most cray of all cray.
On their world tour of excess, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ tour finally rolled into Paris. After performing the ubiqutous ‘Niggas In Paris’ multiple times at every show so far – a friend in London said they did it 8 times at last week’s gig - the big question was how many times would they play ‘Niggas In Paris,’ in Paris. Five? Ten? Fifty?... read more
Groupie Limelight stars from May, Purity Ring, will release their debut album ‘Shrines’ in July. After releasing just four songs and generating crazy amounts of hype with their stunning, creeping synthpop, the Canadian duo have finally released their debut video clip for ‘Belispeak.’

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have release their awesome new clip today for ‘Man on Fire’. Just like the song, the clip has a real warmth to it. Following all sorts of dance troupes, we get to see the real people in and around these communities. Beyond the glitz and glamour of Madison Avenue and the hipsters of Brooklyn, we’re given a vision of New York from a different perspective.
A particularly amazing moment in the video is the scene including the New York... read more
Scissor Sisters have just released their eagerly anticipated fourth album, ‘Magic Hour,’ and the American glam-pop-ers have shared this bizarre, colourful clip for album opener, ‘Baby Come Home.’
In a cartoonish, vibrant and fun video, the band return to their staple 70s synth-based pop sound, away from the more upbeat 80s sound of previous single ‘Only The Horses.’
Incidentally, we’ve got some deluxe album copies of ‘Magic Hour’... read more
!Sydney’s Deep Sea Arcade are making waves – excuse the pun – at home and abroad. And today we have an exclusive look at the new clip for single, ‘Seen No Right’. Just like their music, the clip is steeped in retro-fuzzy-charm with a decidedly Brit-pop vibe. It’s no coincidence that there’s an obvious link between the video and the song, band-member Nic McKenzie directed the clip. What a multi-talented guy. Be the first to see it now: ... read more
