Music Video of the Day: Girl Band "Paul" (2015)

One of our discoveries at The Great Escape earlier this year, Dublin buzz group Girl Band recently released an excellent video for their latest single "Paul". Taken from their soon-to-be-released debut album Holding Hands With Jamie, the video was directed by Bob Gallagher, who explains the idea behind the video after the jump.

Music Video of the Day: Airling "Stallin'" (2015)

Our music video of the day belongs to Brisbane artist Airling, who has just released a clip for her single "Stallin'", a track which will see her heading out on the road this October with her three-piece band and LANKS. Directed by Matisse Forman of Forman Film, the video lets the suave moves of Nacho Pop do the walking and Airling's lips do the talking. It's a pretty fun viewing, and an even better song. Soulful, moody and hypnotic, it's without question some of the acclaimed artist's finest work to date, with stellar vocal work and a killer vibe. Watch it below:

Music Video of the Day: The Weeknd "Tell Your Friends" (2015)

The Weeknd is currently celebrating the release of his second official studio album, Beauty Behind the Madness, which is set to cement his position at the centre of the pop world, and as one of the biggest artists of the past few years. His latest single is "Tell Your Friends" with a beat provided by none other than Kanye West, who inspires the Canadian vocalist towards a video similar to West's "Flashing Lights", a dark and slightly macabre story that also brings in hints of Radiohead's "Karma Police" video. Check it out below.

Music Video of the Day: Art of Sleeping “Bleeding Out” (2015)

Art of Sleeping have a big few months ahead of them; an Australian tour with The Jungle Giants, as well as a spot at Sydney’s Gentlemen of the Road alongside Mumford & Sons, Jake Bugg, Future Islands and The Vaccines. They’ve just unveiled their new music video for the single “Bleeding Out”, directed by Nick Maguire (Jungle Giants,Orphans Orphans, Mosman Alder), a vibrant clip which you can check out here!

Music Video of the Day: CHVRCHES “Leave A Trace” (2015)

Ahead of the release of their second album Every Open Eye, CHVRCHES have given us the video for “Leave A Trace”. The electronic three-piece craft huge beats and lush synths, creating incredible, original pop music.

Exclusive Music Video Premiere: Hannah Robinson "Half Past Ten" (2015)

Fresh from playing the AU sessions last month, Sydney songstress Hannah Robinson is today premiering her remarkable brand new music video "Half Past Ten" on the AU review. The track is taken from her brand new EP Luna, which you can listen to here and buy here. She celebrated the launch last week with a sold out show in Sydney! Watch the video here, now:

Music Video of the Day: Fox & Fowl “Spark" (2015)

Brisbane’s Fox & Fowl create incredibly tight indie pop music. Their track “Sparks”, produced by Steve Schram who’s worked with the likes of San Cisco and Paul Kelly has a bittersweet tone, with immaculate vocals and warping guitar parts. You can check out the music video for it here:

Music Video of the Day: The Durries “Marlboro Gold” (2015)

The Durries have recently released their EP and the single “Marlboro Gold” has possibly the most perfect video ever. It’s got costumes, a spoken word section, and a whole lot of cigarettes.

Music Video of the Day: Editors "Life is a Fear" (2015)

Having just premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats radio show, the new tune from Editors is here! "Life is a Fear" is the latest single released from the band's forthcoming fifth studio album, In Dream, and has again shown the Brits delving further away from the guitar-driven sounds fans have become familiar with as they continue to explore and develop some experimental electro-pop sounds.

Music Video of the Day: Unknown Mortal Orchestra “Ur Life One Night” (2015)

“Ur Life One Night” is one of the stand out tracks off Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s third album Multi-Love, and it’s just been released as a single along with a music video. Fitting to the admittedly strange, yet incredible music, it’s pretty safe to say I have absolutely no idea what’s going on in this video.
