JUNGLE have given us a break-dancing kid, a roller-skating duo and a collective dance performance in their previous clips, and now, we have two, more experienced fellas busting some moves in the music video to ‘Time’. Damn these guys can move… The duo’s self-titled debut album is out next week and can be streamed in full over at iTunes.
How To Dress Well has revealed his What is this Heart? video trilogy, which follows a young in-love couple navigating the struggles of their circumstances. Directed by Johannes Greve Muskat, written by Tom Krell and soundtracked by singles ‘Repeat Pleasures’, ‘Face Again’ and ‘Childhood Faith in Love’, the trilogy unfolds into a short film about love, loss and the lengths we go to for those who we truly care for. Watch the entire trilogy from start to finish above and kudos to HTDW for creating something special here.
FKA twigs is a Khaeleesi incarnate in the music video for ‘Two Weeks’, the lead single from her recently announced debut LP1. The self-produced number is a jittery cacophony of rich layers of stuttering beats that engulf her luxuriously sexy voice. Like all things twigs, the accompanying visual, directed by NABIL, is a (bizarre) treat which sees the avant-garde songstress draped in gold looking like the Mother of Dragons. LP1 drops August 11, go get it here!
French Cuban twins Naomi & Lisa-Kainde Diaz have been signed by iconic British label XL Recordings under the moniker Ibeyi (“ee-bey-ee”), the word for “twins” within the Yoruba culture. Their debut single titled ‘Oya’, produced by Richard Russell, is a multilayered epic which finds 19 years old, Lisa-Kaïndé’s laying down some truly magnificent vocals whilst sister Naomi takes control of percussion duties and delivers some stunning backing vocals. Citing James Blake as one of their many influences, and with hints of Bjork scattered throughout, Ibeyi capture a surreal sound mirrored to perfection by the track’s eerie and strangely captivating visual. Those harmonies are pretty breathtaking.
Amsterdam’s Full Crate & Mar return with a new video for their ‘Man x Woman’ single which first dropped back in January. Following a relatively extended hiatus pursuing solo projects, they’re back, armed with a new recording contract with Island Records and prepping new material. Take a look at their sexy new video featuring a bunch of morphing concrete, naked people and a rather scantily clad Mar (phwoar ladies!).
Our boy Darq E Freaker comes through with another monstrous single, titled ‘Minger’, that combines an epic fusion of trap extravagance, grime dystopia and a slew of undercover Timbo influences (do you hear that?). His new video, premiered on FACT and directed by rising London director Sally Sibbet, embodies Freaker’s horror-core ranking perfectly – it’s set in what appears to be Lucifer’s playpen, riddled with snake wielding demon strippers and disembodied hearts. A madness. Check it out.
It’s only been a few weeks since we heard BANKS’ latest single ‘Drowning‘, but we already have the visual for you to devour. The sultry songstress gets all seductive in a room full of mirrors in the Mike Piscitelli-directed clip; spawning a dark and enchanting atmosphere. BANKS’ debut album Goddess is out September 9, take a look up top.
Our homegirl Roses Gabor returns to the fore with a fierce new single produced by our wonderkid hit-maker MNEK – a video for which has just been premiered on Noisey. The track, created in a flurry of “electrical chemistry” between singer and producer turns out to be a pulsating voltaic slow jam which Gabor elevates through her calming vocal chords.
