Irisih trio Two Door Cinema Club are back with another creative clip, this time for the standout Beacon track “Handshake.” The Sam Pilling-directed video sees a butcher decapitating band members Alex Trimble, Sam Halliday and Kevin Baird to use their still-living heads as bowling balls. After “Sleep Alone,” “Sun” and “Next Year,” “Handshake” is the fourth single taken from last year’s sophomore LP Beacon and will be released on June 10th via Kitsuné. Watch the video below.
“Dancing Anymore” is the much-anticipated first single to stem from Is Tropical’s forthcoming sophomore album I’m Leaving, which comes out May 20th via Kitsuné Records. Megaforce, the French directors foursome behind the brilliant video that was Is Tropical’s 2011 hit “The Greeks,” once again direct and definitely do not disappoint. NSFW!
“Yellow Teeth” is the first track to leak from Is Tropical’s new album I’m Leaving, which comes out on May 20th 2013 on Kitsuné Records. The track features additional vocals by Ellie Fletcher. Stream the lyric video below!
Northern-Ireland indie masters Two Door Cinema Club have released the video for “Next Year,” the third single (following “Sleep Alone” and “Sun”) off their sophomore studio album Beacon. Despite the trademark Two Door Cinema Club energetic sound, the album opener is in fact a sad piece about two lovers whose relationship is thwarted by distance, because the guy, vocalist Alex Trimble, is on tour and away from the girl throughout the year. Trimble promises her that he’ll “be home next year” and sings, “if you think of me, I will think of you.” Awww… Trimble told NME: “It was one of the first new ones we put down on the record after ‘Handshake’, ‘Sleep Alone’ and ‘Settle’, which were written quite a long time before that. It’s a song for friends who we never see.”
Directed by Giorgi Testi, the performance-type video was shot at Dublin’s O2 Arena on January 19, 2013, and features the trio and over 10.000 fans.“We’ve been having so much fun playing shows this year that we thought it very appropriate to make one into a music video. The O2 Arena in Dublin is one of the biggest headline shows we’ve ever played, so we thought it would be a great idea to capture it on film. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!” said guitarist Sam Halliday.
Next Year will be released on February 18th on Kitsuné with a bunch of remixes. Until then, watch the video and get a free download of a beautiful remix of the song by Newcastle Indie-pop quintet Shields below.
French electropop artist Yelle is back with an 80’s tinged single titled “L’Amour Parfait,” just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s taken from her EP of the same name that also includes remixes of the track by Baadman, Ruben Mandolini, The Phantom and Sticky K. You can purchase it via Kitsuné starting February 11th.
Learning that Is Tropical have just released a new EP titled Flags through Kitsuné is pleasant news, but what’s even better is finding out that they are heading back to studio to record their highly anticipated sophomore album. Expect it later this Spring. In the meantime, watch the video for “Oi Peru,” one of four tracks from the current EP which pays tribute to South America. The video was directed by Pablo & Josh in collaboration with Matt Exley.
Our favourite riot grrrl influenced New York dance pop duo Heartsrevolution are finally back with a wicked new video for their extremely catchy new single titled “Not That Hard To Explain.” Borrowing the guitar lines, the drums and the song title of their fellow New Yorkers The Strokes’ hit debut single “Hard To Explain,” the track caters a delicious anarchy treatment to our ears through the filter of a blend of the duo’s hip hop, trash and electro-pop sounds.
“This is more of a mission statement than a music video. After navigating the dark underbelly of the music industry and watching the rapid decline of human civilization… The lyrics/video speaks for itself. Revolution! (or) Run…”
It really is not that hard to explain. Just, grab a mysterious popsicle and join the party.
“Not That Hard To Explain” is from Ride or Die, Heartsrevolution’s long-promised debut full-length album which we’ve been waiting for 2 years now. The album is set for release in 2013 on Kitsuné.
Supreme turntablists and producers Lifelike and A-Trak have joined forces for a new EP titled Don’t Stop which will be out on November 24th via Kitsuné. With the body-moving synths of Lifelike and the scratchy vocals and the powerful basses and cuts of A-Trak, “Don’t Stop” is already set to be a dancefloor blaster. But that’s not all. The joint EP also gives us 3 great remixes from Gigamesh, The Bloody Sisters and Mauvais Cliché.
Listen to and download the Don’t Stop free mini-mix below to get a delicious first taste of what is to come.
