Chet Faker's star has been on the rise ever since that cover of "No Diggity" popped up in 2011, but he kept us waiting a long time for his first proper album. Built Like Glass finally dropped last week to a heap of deserved acclaim, and now there's a video to pair up with the moody highlight "1998". Like the song, it slowly crawls out of some grim vibes into something a lot more technicolour. Peep it below.
Geelong quintet The Evening Cast have released their catchy single "Questions" onto the world, and now they have a stunning music video to go along with it. The clip has been directed and shot by The Ayvee Space and you can buy the track over on iTunes HERE. But before you go to there, watch the world premiere of the clip here, exclusively on the AU:
the AU is proud to premiere the new music video from Sydney based rockers Bonez. The track, "Foxy Lady", is a cover of legendary rock n roller Jimi Hendrix classic track and is taken from Bonez debut EP On The Pig's Back Vol. 1 - the first in a series of three EPs planned for release this year. The video was shot and edited by Johnathan Devoy, best known as the front man for heavy rock bands Jerk/Ink/Melody Black and more. The video also features the pole dancing prowess of Miss Summer Blazin' and was shot onsite at Oxford Art Factory. Enjoy the clip here:
Considering what the Murlocs had to go through to get their debut record Loopholes out into the world, "Paranoid Joy" sounds like a pretty apt state of mind for the Victorian dudes to be in. Having had most of their work wiped out due to a stolen laptop, the band had to start from scratch and record nomadically, assembling their sun-damaged jams during borrowed time in the living rooms of friends. Fortunately for us they persevered, and "Paranoid Joy" is an eccentric, gorgeous slice of weirdo psych, with an equally wiggy video to match:

The new video from Steel Panther is here friends, and it’s everything you feared it might be! This contains explicit content, classic Panther style. Don’t say you weren't warned... this is definitely NSFW.
The Harpoons shot onto the radar so long ago that it's hard to believe that Falling Over You (due in July) will be their first album, but if "Unforgettable" is anything to go by, it'll be worth the wait. With Bec Rigby sounding like Janelle Monae waiting by the phone for you to return her call, it's irresistible.
