It’s that time of the week again where we rummage through the internet to find the best video clips for you to enjoy! This week our favourites include the likes of Krista Papista, Face + Heel, Dream Wife, Funkadelic ft. Kendrick Lamar & Ice Cube and Chuck Inglish ft. Asher Roth & Helios Hussain. Go on, throw yourself in there and hit play.
Krista Papista – I Wish I Had Blue Eyes
The continuously progressive Krista Papista returns this year with ‘I Wish I Had Blue Eyes,’ self-released without a label. Directed by Krista & blør, the video portrays a traditional Greek dance called Zeibekiko. In the words of Krista, “The video aims to raise a few questions, reconstruct the usual scenario.” We’re keen to see more from the “sordid pop” artist this year!
Face + Heel – Pier Video
Created using an old VHS machine, an iPhone and tracking on a video player, ‘Pier Video’ is flash back into the past. “The phone in the video is from the 1970’s. I collect original push button phones. It’s also on our album sleeve. It’s quite distinct matte pink and I like using it in visuals as a lot of the album is about communication and reminiscence… ” Says Luke from the Bristol-based band. Taken from upcoming debut album ‘Our Princes’ Quarry’ coming out on 15th April, the single is out now, via their brand new label Dekalog OmniWare through Believe Digital.
Dream Wife – Hey Heartbreaker
Our favourite riot grrrls are back with ‘Hey Heartbreaker’, directed by Eleanor Hardwick and Sam Boullier. Shoveling spaghetti into their faces and still looking cool as fuck, their Dream Wife EP01 is out now via Cannibal Hymns, also on limited edition cassette. And you can refresh your memory with their interview on KALTBLUT here.
Funkadelic ft. Kendrick Lamar & Ice Cube – Ain’t That Funkin’ Kind of Hard on You? (Remix)
After months of prep and internet teases, the official video for Funkadelic’s “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?” remix has arrived and it’s got the whole gang onboard. Featuring contributions from Kendrick Lamar and OG Comptonian, Ice Cube, the visual follows the intergalactic pursuits of George Clinton and the torchbearers of funk, all of which co-pilot the mothership as they descend upon an interplanetary soiree. Just, everything. Wow.
