10/10 Would Watch - Video Clips Of The Week

Some incredible video clips we watched this week.

Here are the best video clips out there right now, as voted by the fresssshhhhmakers. That’s us! Okay you got us, we didn’t vote. Also we’re not fresh at all, could probably do with a good shower. But we didn’t have time to shower because we were busy watching all the videos so we could choose the very best ones for you, so you can have cool shit to post on your Facebook walls and win the admiration of your fans, and impress your friends with when they come over. We don’t have friends. ‘Coz, again, the no-shower thing again.

GROUPER - MADE OF AIR

This week ambient experimental musician Grouper released her first music in a long time – LP Ruins (stream the whole thing here). Eight compositions, just Harris’ beautiful voice and a piano. She released this clip this week, featuring tranquil running waters, slow-motion shots of blinking eyes and bubbles. Press play and breathhhhhe out. – Dani

 

RATKING + DJ DOG DICK - COCOA 88 

Grainy bootleg security camera footage and a jacked-up recording of a music video from the early ‘90s. Gritty and goofy and in your face, just like New York noise rappers Ratking. This is off their new (ish) album So It Goes. – Dani

SHARON VAN ETTEN - YOUR LOVE IS KILLING ME

If you’ve seen the film Martha Marcy May Marlene, where Elizabeth Olsen plays a young woman trying to free herself from the grip of a cult, you’ll know how haunting yet poetic director Sean Durkin’s work is. He’s behind the camera for indie singer Sharon Van Etten’s latest clip, wherein Carla Juri (who you may recognise from Wetlands, that played at Revelation Film Festival recently), hangs around in New York bars smoking and looked troubled. Durkin's intimate style is the perfect match for Van Etten’s meandering, emotionally tormented music. – Dani

MURLO - INTO MIST

As well as being a dab hand at darkening-up R&B tunes, exciting UK producer Murlo makes some colourful, bizarre instrumental grime. He's also got mad skills as an animator, as he proves in this clip which he made himself to accompany his track Into The Mist, the title track from his forthcoming EP on Rinse. It's a journey through a mystical, hyper-real palace, filled with floating blobs and marble statues... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ - Dani

PANDA BEAR - MR NOAH 

Don’t watch Mr Noah if you get motionsick easily; it’s a super dizzying couple of minutes as the camera sways side to side and trails behind some kind of mechanic in blue workwear, following him going up stairs in an obsessive repeat loop, actually it reminded me a bit of Gondry’s clip for Kylie's Come Into My World. - Dani

TKAY MAIDZA - SWITCH LANES

Tkay Maidza continues to take 2014 by the scruff of the neck… last Friday saw the release of her debut EP Switch Tapes, featuring the Paces-produced joint Switch Lanes. The animated video clip for the single is now live and you need to check it out below, because it is all kinds of rad. And once you've watched it, get stuck into Switch Tapes HERE. - Troy

  

VIOLENT SOHO - EIGHTFOLD

Next week sees Violent Soho's final tour for 2014 kicking off, and while I could recap the Brissy outfit's stellar year I'll just point you to THIS POST, which wraps up the more recent golden events for the group…If for some insane reason you haven't seen this bunch of legends, the just-released video clip for Eightfold will give you some indication of what to expect on the upcoming tour. - Troy

CHVRCHES - UNDER THE TIDE

Scottish trio CHVRCHES have released a visually-very-pleasing new video clip for their single Under The Tide, directed by Sing J Lee, who along with working with the band in the past, has also worked on clips for the likes of Australia's own Vance Joy and Gorgon City. The video for Under The Tide is a like a science fiction/anime fan's wet dream, with homages to things like Tron and anime movies I couldn't begin to tell you on account of my fairly limited knowledge to the genre. But I like sci-fi, and this clip is great. - Troy

SHABAZZ PALACES - MOTION SICKNESS

The clip is cinematic in scope, and Lynchian in style. The narrative follows the daily struggle of a female drug dealer and reality star. She drifts around a vibrantly coloured '70s poolside film set, wrangles with an unrelenting drug addiction, and deals in a drug running ring aided by corrupt police officials...If this was the trailer for a new HBO show, I’d be ready to torrent it quicksmart. - Dani

MONTGOMERY - PINATA

Keeping in line with the melancholic electronica sounds we've heard [from Queensland singer Montgomery] so far, the video clip is an equally moody affair (helped by the black & white aesthetic and somewhat mundane setting). Moody, ethereal and just all-round beautiful. - Troy

FKA TWIGS - VIDEO GIRL

The video is shot in black and white and has a sombre mood that perfectly matches Twigs' ethereal, twisted R&B - it features FKA dancing for a prisoner on death row – she writhes around him sexily, and jerks her body in the corner, as he is laid out on his back, and a euthanasia injection is being pumped through his veins. - Dani

WET - DON'T WANNA BE YOUR GIRL

Taken from their recently released self-titled debut EP, Don't Wanna Be Your Girl is an emotionally charged new single finding Brooklyn trio Wet at their most delicate, and unsurprisingly, most beautiful. The video was directed by the female-run erotic magazine Beauty Today, featuring singer Kelly Zutrau. - Troy

RACHEL BY THE STREAM - REASONS TO LIVE

Melbourne electronic duo Rachel By The Stream's new single Reasons To Live has been knocking up plays around the clock, no doubt thanks in part to to the Jono Chong-directed clip, which has been shortlisted for the Melbourne Warehouse Cinema Competition. - Troy
