Music videos are artistic extensions of the songs themselves, with many visual accompaniments becoming just as, if not more iconic than the song it was created for. As usual, some of our favourite songs of the week also had some of our favourite videos, with this week's list including new singles & videos from ANOHNI and the Johnsons, Beni Bjah & Flewnt, DZ Deathrays, Juice Webster, NZCA LINES, PANIA, Penguin Cafe, The Blaze, Tkay Maidza & Flume and Ziggy Ramo.
ANOHNI and the Johnsons - Why Am I Alive Now?
Directed by Euphoria actreess Hunter Schafer, the video for Why Am I Alive Now? aims to answer this question with a stunning seaside backdrop. ANOHNI And The Johnsons new album My Back Was A Bridge For You To Cross is out now Rough Trade.
Beni Bjah & Flewnt - Throw Away the Keys
Two of Boorloo's finest MCs team up for the first time with a hard hitting new cut of hip hop that was "made to highlight the injustices their people face in the Australian justice system, and the devastation it causes to the community", featuring a video shot by Uncool Sam at the Fremantle Prison, WA - the site of many atrocities committed against Aboriginal people.
DZ Deathrays - My Mind Is Eating Me Alive
Ahead of their national tour in support of new album R.I.F.F., DZ Deathrays release a fun, chaotic, psychedelic, collage-style music video for album cut My Mind Is Eating Me Alive. DZ Deathrays' new album R.I.F.F. is out now.
Juice Webster - Returning
After a couple of dope singles, Naarm/Melbourne's Juice Webster announced her debut album JULIA in fine style with the alt-folk indie-pop of Returning, with a crisp, pensive black & white video that sees Webster exploring the shoreline. Juice Webster's debut album JULIA is out September 15 via Cohort.
NZCA LINES - Push Reset
The solo project of Brooklyn's Michael Lovett, NZCA Lines' combines throwback hip hop drums and catchy indie pop into an earworm of a single on Push Reset, while the video takes the title literally as we see Lovett "pushing reset" as he repeatedly exits his apartment in a range of outfits & moods at different times of the day. NZCA Lines' new EP Universal Heartbreak is out September 22 via Memphis Industries.
PANIA - Burner Fone
Naarm/Melbourne meets Sheffield as veteran influential producer Toddla T links up with star in the making PANIA for a cut of drum & bass meets r&b flavours, while the video sees PANIA on a burner phone-driven, party-filled adventure.
Penguin Cafe - Welcome To London
As the title implies, the video for Penguin Cafe's latest cut of jazzy, neo-classical instrumental goodness features a wide range of characters in settings in the titular London. Penguin Cafe's new album Rain Before Seven... is out now via Erased Tapes.
The Blaze - MADLY
We raved about the French duo's latest cinematic music video masterpiece here when it dropped earlier this week. The Blaze's new album JUNGLE is out now.
Tkay Maidza & Flume - Silent Assassin
The video for this wild new bouncy, huge Aussie collab sees Maidza tearing it up in a jeep in the desert while packing as much attitude as this massive tune.
Ziggy Ramo feat. Jantine - Better
A standout cut from his awesome Sugar Coated Lies album from January this year, Ziggy Ramo returns with a video for Better, filmed in the stunning surrounds of Kulin Nation at Hanging Rock, taking place around the traditional boundaries of the Wurundjeri, Dja Aja Wurrung and Taungurung Peoples.
