Sydney electronic duo Flight Facilities already have enough steam behind them to sell out shows around the country, and they don't even have a studio album out yet. Their catalogue is looking to become a bit richer come October 24th, when the producers finally release their debut album Down to Earth. Our first taste of what they've been cooking up comes with stunning single "Two Bodies", a sensual, melodic house affair which features heavenly vocal work from Brisbane songstress Emma Louise. The impressively choreographed video comes from Sydney-via-New York director Lorin Askill, who has taken an artful approach for what is bound to be one of the summer festival season's biggest hits.

It seems Jack White has become a fan of giving himself a very tight deadline. Back when his current album Lazaretto wasn' released yet, the revered artist performed and pressed to vinyl the album's title track in less than four hours. Now he's back, giving himself just 24 hours to conceive and create a video for one of the LP's best selections "Would You Fight For My Love?". A brooding White looking equally bright and moody sits at at a bar and trails along the ghostly aesthetic as he sits at a bar looking all dapper and lonely. Check it out below.
Megan Washington performed threee seperate pop up shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney over the weekend to promote her latest album "There There".

The 1975 have released the video for "Heart Out", their final single from what has been an incredibly strong debut album for the young Brits. Directed by the band's frontman Matthew Healy and Adam Powell, the music video is a cute clip featuring younger versions of the band themselves. You may think 'little Matt' is resembles the grown up version remarkably and you'd be right, it's his brother.
