Top 5 Videos of the Week

Hello there KALTBLÜTER! It’s that time of the week again where we pick some of the best and newest videos from the past few days, so you don’t have to scroll endlessly through the internet. We have some vintage visual treats for you this time around – enjoy!

Gurr – I Don’t Like You

Part of Gurr’s new EP ‘Furry Dream’, released April of this year via Duchess Box Records, ‘I Don’t Like You’ is the new video from three-piece garagepunk band. Hailing from Berlin, the trio sound like a “trashy 60s girl group meshed with poppy vocals in two voices and a flavour of eeriness dug out from the deep darkness that is the Berlin rocknroll bar’s restroom at 5 am.” Perfect! The girls actually supported Best Coast earlier this year in the Bang Bang Club, Berlin – couldn’t think of a better complimenting band!

Superpoze – Overseas

Superpoze recently unveiled a powerful video for lead single ‘Overseas’, directed by French director François Larpin from up and coming production company Anniki, responsible for Kris Van Assche film ‘Concrete’. “I liked the idea to illustrate this with a car.” Says Superpoze about his new video, “A car is a closed and protective space but as the same time it’s an ongoing source of danger. I also think it is relevant not giving a literal meaning to the track’s title, nor cliché images that the track could inspire. The general mood should prevail – regardless of context or time.”

Disclosure – Holding On

Wait. Was that a Blade Runner intro? Straight from the new album ‘Caracal’, to be released 25th September by PMR/Island Records, Disclosure’s new video featuring the vocals of Gregory Porter, is certainly a futuristic delight. It’s also a little scary. But oh my, the song is so good! I don’t know about you, but I’m instantly ready to go out. Here’s the description oF the video by the boys, “We wanted to create something very different with our music videos this time around, something unique that would connect all the songs from the album and the videos in a special way. This is the first of a series of four amazing videos directed by Ryan Hope that come together to create a short film ‘Caracal’ so, as each music video comes out… The plot unfolds. We hope you enjoy.” More soon please!

Son Lux – You Don’t Know Me

This is the most menancing but brilliant video! Featuring Tatiana Maslany (star of Orphan Black), the video depicts a pretty dissatisfied housewife and how her mind tends to wander, as she mouths along the words of ‘You Don’t Know Me’ sat opposite her husband as he drones on at her. Poor thing. Director Nathan Johnson explains his ideas for the video, “When Ryan first sent the album over to The Made Shop, this was the song that I kept coming back to. It touches a pretty raw nerve, and we wanted to explore the song in terms of the empty rituals we often see in relationships and, to a larger degree, religion. We wrote the video specifically for Tatiana and designed everything around her performance. She’s such a phenomenal actor, and she brings something so compelling to the role – this powerful figure who is stuck in the vacancy of routines that have lost their meaning.”

Shiko Shiko (シコシコ) – Akira & Virgile

Acid acid acid acid. This video was created by Arekushi Taiko for the Japanese named French trio, Shiko Shiko (which pretty much translates to masturbation), who describe their music as “rock with noises, blips and buzzes”. Without an obscene amount of translation I’ve found the perfect description of the band, “Beauty and violence from future. With dinosaurs. Cause dinosaurs are so cool. And we’re cool too. Cause we play in a band.” Well, that settles that. The track is from the upcoming album ‘Maké Maké’ which is out on the 25th of September on Platinum Records.
