There’s something really awesome about alt pop punk rock. The boys from Catfish and the Bottlemen are pretty damn awesome - and they’re from the UK. But hey, if you don’t like them that’s totally fine - i’ll see them by myself when they’re here supporting The Kooks.
If you ask me, Swim Season are one of the most exciting acts coming out of Melbourne right now. Formerly known as We The People, the indie pop rockers had an absolute stellar tune in “Leon” last year but then saw a reshuffle in band members, triggering a reformation in June 2014 under their new name. The fresh faced 5 piece were quick to turn heads with the release of “The Throne” in August, with its commanding and explosive chorus making for an incredibly strong debut and in my opinion, one of the top tracks to come out this year.
Following the full versions of "Ring Off" and "7/11" which were released yesterday by Beyoncé, the queen of music has released a fun music video for the latter. There's less in the way of production here, rather, Bey takes advantage of some effects to spin her and her dancers goofing around into one of her most playful videos to date. Watch out for the Blue Ivy cameo.
After debuting the track live on the recent One Day tour, the duo of Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice, better known as Spit Syndicate, have dropped a video for their new single "Real". It's dark with an aggressive tone, and there's a lot of mean mugging going on, with guest appearances from the whole crew as the duo bounce head-spinning rhymes and a slick hook off of a polished drum-heavy production. Check it out below.
Melbourne’s The Trotskies have backed up the hype of their new single “DYR” with a thrilling music video that pays homage to gangster movies and film noire.
We're excited to bring you the exclusive world premiere tonight of Canadian violin wielding artist Jaron Freeman-Fox new single and music video, "Auctioneering Everything". Check it out below:
Some of you might know that the Country Music Awards of Australia (Golden Guitars) nominations were announced this morning. So, it seems pretty timely that Jasmine Rae, with her blues-country sound, has released a new clip! We love the track. Check it out below:
Tim Chaisson has been a favourite of the AU's for some time now and today we're excited to be able to premiere his new music video for his new single, "Crushed"! The Canadian singer/songwriter is to return to Australia for a national tour this month, so if you've not been able to see Tim on previous tours, do not miss this one! "Crushed" is the lead single from his new album, Lost in Light, which is out now through ABC/Universal Music. The track is a great pop number, Chaisson's vocals worked in and around a cool bluesy arrangement.
An arty film clip mixed with a dreamy landscape-esque song took my first interest this week. Sui Zhen - otherwise known as DJ Susan directed produced and starred in this video clip, and I think it’s pretty cool. Check it out below.
Okay, so I’ve covered this lovely songwriter before, and like last time, I’m pretty thrilled to be talking about her new song. You see, Sahara Beck isn’t your typical songwriter, and her new single is just as cool as the others. And yes, her new EP Bloom is out and you can totally see her on tour soon. But first, check out the video, below.
Bringing a new flavour of Pop Rock to our airwaves, the Balitmore band Have Mercy have released a song in time for roadtrips and summer shenanigans. “Howl” is probably one of the most energetically laid back tracks we will hear this summer. Calling it now. Check it out below!
Irish music will never be the same. Seriously. Check out "99" from Half of Me - not only is it a cool drinking song (then again, that’s to be expected) but it’s a sweet party maker as well. Oh, and it’s got a rad video clip to go with with as well. Watch it here:
OK, so I'm not too sure what the video for "Video Girl" is about. Honestly. But, what we do know is that FKA Twigs is one of the coolest and trippiest ambient electro downbeat artists we’ve heard in a long time. It’s a really well directed video – but the track is totally awesome. Check it out below.
Taken off her debut EP, Aussie artist Olivia Ruth is premiering the official film clip for her track "Forever" today on the AU. The video was shot in Alexandra Headlands in the Sunshine Coast by BeatsTV. Watch it first here:
