NEW VIDEO // NIKKITA RA - UNITY

Rob Carroll

Sydney-based indie-electronic songstress, Nikkita Ra, has just unveiled her stunning debut single ‘Unity’ and accompanying music video, shot in downtown Las Vegas.

Nikkita describes the inspiration behind the single and video –

“The song is about a couple who get lost in a moment of heightened love and hedonism and make a split decision of mistaken love and romance. I have always loved musical storytellers and have never experimented with it before…I think the song and clip also come from a place inside of me that feels we have been taught false ideals by the media about romanticism and this has been to the detriment of real grown up love. Filmed in Vegas, the capital of hedonism and snap romanticism, it has a slight hat tilt to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or True Romance.”

NEW VIDEO // SOLOMON O - HOLOGRAMS

Rob Carroll

Following on from the release of his silky smooth debut single ‘Holograms’, Brisbane-based composer Solomon O has delivered the accompanying music video via an animated clip by artist and animator Dan Aubin.

Solomon O describes the motivation behind the song and video –

“Holograms is about God feeling skeptical about our love for him, like we do with artificial intelligence. If we want real love from AI, then they’ll need real free will; which brings the risk they’ll hate and kill us. Real freedom requires creating this new closed system who's experience we can't know. So I wrote a song about it, intending to sell it to Aguilera or Kesha, but I thought ‘no, no this one’s too good’, so I recorded it myself. I thought that Dan's artwork and imagery would be able to capture and enhance the ideas, and ended up super stoked with how it came together.”

NEW VIDEO // MOOKHI - LACUNAE

Rob Carroll

After a stellar debut in January with standout single ‘Foul Play’ (featuring Billy Fox), Sydney-based producer, Mookhi has returned with the accompanying video for her second offering ‘Lacunae’lifted from her critically praised maiden EP ‘Lost & Found’. 

Mookhi describes the motivation behind the clip –

“I saw 'Lacunae' as an exploration between old and new. I used modern techniques to synthesise sounds, but purposely treated them to capture an old, tattered, barely-in-tune vibe. This same idea permeated through to the creation of the video clip. I spent long hours rifling through old 35mm archival footage, being very particular in my selection. I wanted each frame to hold some symbolism or emotional effect. I wanted people to think after they watch it.”

NEW VIDEO // CHASE CITY - A-N-X-T-

Rob Carroll

Following on from releasing a slew of standout singles, Tasmanian-based indie rock quintet, Chase City, have returned to unveil their latest cut ‘A-N-X-T’ and an accompanying music video.

Front man Tarik Stoneman describes the inspiration and story behind the song –

“We wrote A-N-X-T well over a year ago at a time when we were experimenting pretty heavily having grown tired of the indie pop sound that we had been pursuing for the two years prior. The band was listening to a lot of old Talking Heads & Bowie records along with really getting into the DFA (label) inspired dance-punk scene that was around in the early 2000’s. The song came together rather quickly in the studio and had a very natural feel to it. We didn’t over complicate it and kept it largely minimal. The lyrics have a political lean, reflecting on some of the attitudes and issues we face in society and are geared at the role and impact of media in our lives.”

NEW VIDEO // BOOTLEG RASCAL - WITH YOU

Rob Carroll

After releasing and touring their stellar new track ‘With You’ nationally to capacity crowds, Sydney indie-dub trio Bootleg Rascal have just unveiled the accompanying music video and announced a US tour.

Guitarist, Jimmy Young further describes the motivation behind the clip:

“Rather than stick to a conventional and cohesive narrative, we wanted the clip to be completely incongruous; jumping from scene-to-scene erratically to accentuate the dream-like experience for viewers. It’s a collection of intriguing standalone shots, which loosely connect in a more underlying and haunting type feel."

NEW VIDEO // ROSS HENRY - FLUX

Rob Carroll

After releasing his latest standout single ‘Flux’, Sydney-based experimental electronic producer, Ross Henry, has just unveiled the accompanying music video – a complete DIY effort produced at his Stanmore home studio.

Henry describes the motivation behind the clip –

“Flux is about transience, movement and how a shift in dynamics can foster or erode a safe space. Through physical experimentation I looked to explore scale, texture and time to convey the idea of vast global transitions. Similar to recent single “The Deep”, the video for Flux utilises the same fundamental techniques I use to produce electronic music..”

NEW VIDEO // MOOKHI - FOUL PLAY FT. BILLY FOX

Rob Carroll

Sydney-based electronic producer and songwriter, Mookhi has announced launch dates and unveiled the accompanying music video for lead single ‘Foul Play’ (featuring Billy Fox) - Directed by Macario De Souza, and produced by Hype Republic (Dune Rats, Kita Alexander).  

Keeping in line with her DIY ethic the narrative was written by the musician herself, with the clip set in a deserted car wrecking yard, which hosts an underground fighting ring. The lead protagonist is chaperoned by his manager and forced against his will to participate. The final scenes take an unexpected and sinister turn.     

NEW VIDEO // BOOTLEG RASCAL - LOVE HER LIKE I LOVE YOU

Rob Carroll

Following on from the release of their standout new single ‘Love Her Like I Love You’, indie-rock dub group, Bootleg Rascal, have just delivered the accompanying video.

The band’s drummer Jack Gray describes the motivation behind the clip:   

The music video draws on points of acceptance, love and feeling like you are almost living in another world. We drew inspiration from the 'love heart shaped message lollies' as the vehicle for the lyrics of the song to appear in the clip. Taking the feelings back to when you were much younger and everyone was able to enjoy sharing these lollies with a nice warm message on it. I guess having some of the darker lyrics on the hearts in the clip, brings to screen much more real emotions than the lollies ever intended on giving off with a twist. Had a bunch of fun making this one. And an A+ to the actors.” 

NEW VIDEO // BLEACH GIRLS - LIKE YOU

Rob Carroll

After recently releasing their standout first single ‘Like You’, Byron Bay-based beach-punk / garage-rock two-piece, Bleach Girls, have just revealed an accompanying video -Shot by Kyla Giuffre / Cut by Genghis Tuan. 

NEW VIDEO // PEPA KNIGHT - COMPANY

Rob Carroll

Following on from the release of his new standout single ‘Company’, Central Coast-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Pepa Knight has just delivered an accompanying picturesque music video. 

Knight describes the motivation behind the clip –

“Most of this footage was taken while driving from Krka to Plitvice Lakes national park in Croatia, the Westfjords region in Iceland and the Sahara Desert, Morocco. It was just cool exploring these epic places with no real itinerary planned out, only a carefully prepared car playlist feat. D.D Dumbo, Peter Matthew Bauer, Efterklang & Streets of Laredo on repeat.” 

NEW VIDEO // NOCTURNAL TAPES - PIECES

Rob Carroll

Following on from releasing their highly-praised new single ‘Pieces’, NSW North Coast-based electronic group, Nocturnal Tapes have just unveiled the accompanying video.

Directed by Darcy Conlan, the clip stars a young boxer who arrives to a gym to find an evil copy of himself, who he must defeat to overcome his fears. A battle ensues and the leading protagonist goes into to fight tooth and nail. Along the way a temptress tries to set him off course, but the headstrong athlete overcomes adversity and remains dedicated to fighting his demons. 

NEW VIDEO // BAD PONY - BOTTLES

Rob Carroll

Following on from the recent release of their brand new single ‘Bottles’, one of Australia’s hardest working indie-rock outfits, Bad Pony have delivered the accompanying music video - Directed by Jack Webb.

Set as a narrative based on a toxic and alcoholic relationship, the clip stars’ Rosie Rivette and Julia Rose as the two young protagonists who find themselves deeply infatuated with one another- leading a lifestyle of crime and intense partying. Eventually their binge drinking catches up with them; seeing the once smitten lovers bond rapidly deteriorate and take a sinister turn. 

 

NEW VIDEO // SELAHPHONIC - EASY

Rob Carroll

Following on from the release of their new single ‘Easy’, Sunshine Coast-based indie-pop quartet Selahphonic have returned with the accompanying music video – a complete DIY effort shot and directed by the band themselves. 

Front man Jamie Coyle explains the inspiration behind the clip -

“We pondered for quite a while on what to do with an accompanying visual to ‘Easy’. It’s a song about perseverance so you would naturally assume a deep and profound narrative would be appropriate; however, in the end the creative think tank just wouldn’t click. So through our frustrations, we decided to just have a good ol’ LOL and take a more light-hearted approach with the interpretation via an inflatable tube man borrowed from a second-hand car dealership.”  

NEW VIDEO // SPARROWS - GET TO KNOW YOU

Rob Carroll

Following on from the release of her stellar new single ‘Get To Know You’, Sydney-based songstress Sparrows has just revealed the accompanying music video and news that she will be launching the new single live at Oxford Art Factory.

Sparrows explains the motivation behind the clip – 

“I found myself in a magical festival setting, letting loose with a bunch of partygoers decked out in crazy costumes. Whilst we were all strangers, we were having the time of our lives and I think the costumes certainly played a role in us being able to express ourselves freely. The video is a fun extension of this experience, whereby the masks and styling creates an other-wordly feel. It’s funny, all the people wearing the masks in the clip, were complete strangers to me but as the day went on I got to know them and they really are an interesting, talented bunch of people. I often find myself eavesdropping on strangers’ conversations and daydream about who they are. What was their last meal? Are they in love? When did they last cry? We are all strangers but could easily get to know each other if we wanted too, but we often don’t and I wish we would more.”  

NEW VIDEO // HIGH VIOLET - GIVE IN

Rob Carroll

Following on from their second offering in single ‘Give In’, Sydney-based indie-pop group, High Violet have just unveiled the accompanying music video – shot in Adelaide by film student, Catherine Francis, edited by band member, Emily Retsas and assisted by Alister Douglas.

Bassist, Emily Retsas, describes the motivation and creative process behind shooting the music video –

“I had just watched the film "Drive" while in Los Angeles and loved the colour palette they used to convey a contemporary 80s throwback film in that setting. We often draw influence from that era, so I really wanted to experiment with a simple concept, and combine that style into the video.”
