Kane StrangView Post releases music video for My Smile Is Extinct
Two Hearts and No Brain album release June 30th on Dead Oceans / Rhythmethod
Fresh off the back of a successful series of gigs, showcases and press days across the UK and EU, Kane Strang returns home for the launch of his sophomore album, Two Hearts and No Brain on Dead Oceans and launches a brand new music video for latest single My Smile Is Extinct, that has held the number one spot at NZ Alternative Radio for three weeks.
Once again, Kane has collaborated with Christchurch based film-maker Julian Vares
(Nadia Reid, Fazerdaze, Doprah) to create the new music video, resulting in a colourful glittery kaleidoscope extravaganza that charmingly belies the song’s narrative. Shot on location in one of New Zealand’s traditional Scottish halls complementing the sardonic and dry humour of Kane and his lyrics.
ODESZA has released their new music video for “Late Night,” created almost entirely with fan footage. Last week, ODESZA called for fan footage for the “Late Night” music video, and received over 1,000 submissions in a mere 48 hours.
PIXX Listen to new single “Waterslides” with video
Taken from debut album, The Age Of Anxiety
Out June 2nd 2017 on 4AD / Rhythmethod
“A genuinely smart, intriguingly playful set that both presses all the right Big Pop buttons and sounds decidedly off-centre.” Uncut 8/10
“Dazzling and infectious.” Dork ****
Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers – has released a new song, ‘Waterslides’, from her forthcoming debut album, The Age Of Anxiety.
A spiralling pop song, its accompanying video fuses a lo-fi aesthetic with the ultra-modern; the synthetic and the natural. Filmed in the futuristic city scape of Bilbao, directors Alice Clingan and Louis Milner explain the premise behind its visual companion. “The lyrics to ‘Waterslides’ are inspired by a dream Hannah had, isolated on a waterpark in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by emotionless suited figures. We tried to make the video in keeping with the surreal and lonely imagery that inspired the song.”
Today Strand of Oaks shares a brand new video for “Everything.” Animated by fellow musician Chad VanGaalen, the colorful, immersive, and illustrative world in the visual accompaniment for “Everything” follows a chaotic narrative, employing psychedelic effects while utilizing everyday imagery.
The track comes from Hard Love, Tim Showalter’s fifth LP under the moniker Strand of Oaks. Recording during much-needed downtime following the release of Heal, Hard Love is a record with influences culled from Creation Records, Trojan dub compilations, and Jane’s Addiction. Hard Love is available now via Dead Oceans.
In addition to releasing today’s video, Strand of Oaks will also be playing a string of North American tour dates, including several festival stops. Full list of dates can be found below.
