I don't know about you, but when I remember and think of New York, I tend to think of it in black and white. Something so vintage about that city, especially when its wintry. So, when Interpol released their music video for El Pintor cut "Everything is Wrong", I thought, 'Well there ya go,' when the first image of Daniel Kessler walking down a NYC street first flashed up. Directed by Paul Banks and Carlos Puga, the clip has everything you could want - Kessler eating an ice cream in the middle of the city, a cute French bulldog and some great footage of the band performing in some on point suits.
Delia Obst is a well known name on the Adelaide circuit, and we're stoked to see that this lady's profile is gaining momentum beyond the SA border too. A stunning songstress who has provided her vocal talents on tracks by the likes of Banjo Jackson and Kaurna Cronin and more, Delia has got some solo stuff of her own coming this year and by all accounts, there's going to be some exciting music ahead.
Until the Ribbon Breaks were just one of the bands we came across at SXSW 2014 and fell for. The Welsh band have been steadily establishing themselves as one act to watch, supporting the likes of Run the Jewels and scheduled to head out on the road with London Grammar, and now have entered Australian radars! Set to release their debut album in Australia at the end of the week through Dew Process/Universal, the sooner Until the Ribbon Breaks can spread their music to more crowds out this way, the better!
As we edge closer to their much anticipated Australian return, The Smashing Pumpkins have given fans out this way something to keep us occupied until they arrive. Their new film clip, for single "Being Beige", is released today and, true to the form of their latest album Monuments to an Elegy, it's a great mix of honest and melancholic. Some would say it's a return to form for Corgan and co, while others say this album shows the band in a refreshed state - "Being Beige" is one of the better cuts off the record in my opinion offers a great display of tone and texture, something the clip encapsulates as well.
Newcastle's The Gooch Palms have dropped the film clip for their great track "Trackside Daze" ahead of their February tour dates! Vibrant, hilarious and indeed attention grabbing, the clip is a great partner to what is already becoming one of my favourite songs of 2015.
Elwood Myre is a young Australian troubadour who collaborates with mandolin player Hunter Beasley, to create folk-laden Americana flavour. In October 2014, endowed with a sound that’s smooth and warm like bubble gum, the pair stumbled into Vienna People Recordings where they tracked their debut album live in 4 days. Today we're excited to premiere the music video for one of the release's most exciting tracks: "California". Watch it below!
Melissah Marie and Jason Mannix take the viewer on a grainy drive through the industrial streets of Port Adelaide in their new film clip for single "Alright Here". The Adelaide duo combine some slick retro blues tones with rock and the result is pretty fucking cool. This track is the latest from The Rememberz's forthcoming debut EP, which has already spawned another sweet tune in "Let Me Be Your Girl". A new band on the scene, sure, but with music like this coming out of Adelaide, 2015 is looking pretty damn good.

If this doesn't make you more psyched to see FKA twigs take to a stage near you on the Laneway tour, then I don't know what will. The British artist who is at the moment, let's be real, slaying it around the world with her unique artistic aesthetic, has just dropped the video clip for her single "Pendulum". Featured on her impressive 2014 record LP1, the video for "Pendulum" depicts twigs tangled and tied up in a breathy display which puts her background as a dancer and physical performer to great use.
British punk band Gallows have released their new music video for "Bonfire Season" ahead of the release of new record Desolation Sounds! The band's fourth album, Desolation Sounds will see an Australian release through Cooking Vinyl Australia in April but in the meantime, sink your teeth into this clip - weighty, fierce and dark.
Legendary EMD group The Prodigy are headed back to Australia to headline Future Music Festival, bringing with them that intense, unforgettable live show that puts them in constant demand, 365 days a year. With all their relentless touring it's hard to believe that they would find the time to work on a follow up to the brilliant Invaders Must Die, but here we are, hanging on every aggressive beat until their new album The Day is My Enemy is released on 30th March. The veterans have shared the first single, "Nasty", continuing the style that permeated Invaders Must Die: aggressive synths, aggressive drums, and just general aggression. It's pretty damn nasty.
Sydney duo Left. have been crafting some smooth tunes over the past few months and as a live unit, the creative partnership between Jono Graham and Sarah Corry has only continued to thrive and strengthen. Their new single, "Lay With Me", is another exampled of this dynamic continuing to flourish and is a cool insight into what we can be expecting from Left. as we near the release of their debut album Sirens (Create/Control) next month.
Monday = POND day. The band has only dropped more tour dates this morning and sweeten the news, they've also unwrapped their latest music video, this time for Man It Feels Like Space's second cut, "Zond". Filmed back in December in Melbourne, the clip was directed by Lord Fascinator and follows on brilliantly from the last POND visual offering in "Sitting Up On Our Crane".
Sia today unveiled a new version of the music video for "Elastic Heart", featuring the return of "Chandelier" shining star, Maddie Ziegler, and actor Shia LaBeouf. Posting a teaser of the clip intially saw the duo in a cage, with the full version seeing Ziegler and LaBeouf engaging in quite the emotional interpretive dance off.

In our first premiere of 2015, we're proud to bring you the new music video from Sydney based artist Taryn La Fauci, "All Of Me". The track is the first single from her debut EP Unveil, which will be out next month. The video was directed by Sam Brumby and filmed out in Meadowbank, with the track recorded and produced by Karl Broadie. It's an intoxicating song... we hope you enjoy it:
Never mind that this track is pretty cool, but “Nights and Weekends” by Cali-based Cold War Kids also has a pretty sixties-inspired video to boot. Not sure what the guy with the power tool is doing, but hey I'll roll with it. Check it out below.
