Alison Wonderland drops warehouse-inspired video for ‘Cold’

Following up from the clips for I Want U and Lies, Alison Wonderland has now released the accompanying visuals to her latest single and Lido collab, Cold. Drawing inspirations from her recent Warehouse Project, the Prad Senanayake-directed video features Alison wandering around a mass of semi-naked fighting, kissing & vomiting bodies on constant loop whilst she meanders around in real time.

Watch FKA Twigs’ breath-taking performance of ‘Two Weeks’ on Jools Holland

Mercury Prize nominee, FKA Twigs performed the hauntingly beautiful Two Weeks on Later With Jools Holland earlier in the week, proving her oscillation between fragility and soul-rendering, sexually-charged confidence further transcends onto the stage. Carefully filtering words such as ‘mother fucker’ with breathy vocals that would have us none the wiser about its M-rated content, while simultaneously pulling off the bleached eyebrows look, Twigs has once again achieved a dazzling performance. Fingers crossed the wild rumours regarding her upcoming appearance at next year’s Laneway Festival aren’t so wild.

Watch: alt-J ‘Every Other Freckle’

alt-J has returned in full-force with their new video for Every Other Freckle, off the British trio’s forthcoming album This Is All Yours.

Directed by Oliver Groulx, this visual masterpiece is man, muscle, nature and the world at its slow-mo best. And just a heads up, you may see a naked bum or two.


Grimes drops post-apocalyptic video for ‘Go’

Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) made waves when she first released Go, a song originally intended for Rihanna, in June. Already amassing over 1.5 million plays on SoundCloud, the strobing, left-field pop track was the first track from the singer in two years. Boucher has now released the music video; a visual smorgasbord of post-apocalyptic imagery featuring some serious dance moves by the singer.

The video was co-directed by Boucher herself, alongside her brother, Mac. She describes the concept below:

In the inferno, people’s actions in life echo eternally. Mike (Virgil) and I (Dante) wander through the circles of hell. It’s not a traditional hell, it kind of reflects stuff that’s going on today. We shot a bunch at the Salton Sea, which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, [and in] a hallway of bullet holes a la Korn “Freak On a Leash,” etc. If you look closely you can find clues. But in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song.”

Enter another weird and wonderful world with Kimbra’s ‘Miracle

Kimbra‘s The Golden Echo has been met with brilliant reviews over the past week and she’s running with the momentum, dropping the video for album favourite, Miracle. At the beginning, everything apart from Kimbra’s costume seems normal but we quickly descend into a woozy world of dancing postmen, mimes and fluorescent athletes. The collection of weird and wonderful characters break out in synchronised dance, taking over the streets but seemingly blocking no traffic, thank goodness. The video was directed by Tom Kerr who’s done a great job creating the slightly skewed world.

See our infographic review of Kimbra’s The Golden Echo here.

Watch Nicki Minaj get dirty in the jungle in ‘Anaconda’

The single cover for Nicki Minaj‘s Anaconda may have caused enough controversy to single-handedly promote the song but the video is sure to strike up even more conversation. There’s plenty more arse to be seen in the Jungle-themed video for Anaconda with a lot of flesh and some butt-slapping aswell. Drake even makes an appearance at the end playing host to Nicki Minaj’s forceful lap-dance. Like Eminem‘s circa-2000s videos, parents will no doubt be standing in front of the TV to block the youngsters from watching. This is without a doubt, NSFW.

Watch the colourful, nostalgic video for The Harpoons’ ‘Can We Work This Out’

Incase you haven’t heard, Australia is the best place in the world right now and Melbourne band The Harpoons are further proof of that. The four-piece are gearing up to release their debut album on September 26 and Can We Work This Out. The track is another example of the burgeoning electronic/RnB in Australia right now with hints of Oscar Key Sung and Seekae heard in the song. The video has been directed by visual artist Becky Sui Zhen who’s created a nostalgic, colourful background for the band to perform a sterile yet embracing visual of the song.


Haim & A$AP Ferg drop Ricki Lake-inspired video for ‘My Song 5’


Daytime TV just got a whole lot sassier with the arrival of Haim and A$AP Ferg‘s video of the gritty, bass-driven My Song 5. Set like a talk show hosted by SNL’s Vanessa Bayer, it features a star-studded cast of the likes of Ke$ha, Vampire Weekend‘s Ezra Koenig and Grimes as both guests and audience members.

It’s not one to be missed, if not purely for Este’s signature facial expressions and A$AP’s bucket hat.
