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 Björk ft. Rosalía, body / negative, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Charm of Finches, HEALTH, Lime Cordiale, Miso Extra, Northlane, O. and Yung Milla.
Björk ft. Rosalía - Oral
A few weeks after this huge cross-generational collab was announced, Björk & Rosalia’s new single is finally here, with all proceeds going to help stop commercial fish farms in eastern Iceland. The slick music video sees Björk & Rosalia sparring in martial arts, Matrix style.
body / negative – sleepy (feat. Midwife)
A few weeks on from their last collaborative track everett, we’ve been blessed with a cut of dreamy sounds from body / negative and Midwife, this time paired with nostalgic, emotional VHS footage of body / negative AKA Andy Schiaffino’s parents getting married. body / negative’s new album everett is out December 8 via Track Number Records.
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You
Legendary alt-folk-country artist followed up his album from earlier in the year with a new single sharing the album’s name… that wasn’t on the album.

HEALTH - Demigods
Just a few weeks out from the release of their new album Rat Wars, L.A. noise industrial rockers HEALTH release a driving, distorted new single while the video broadly continues the video game themes from the last clip - this time splicing FMV footage from the iconic Red Alert video game series… cha-chinga! HEALTH’s new album Rat Wars is out December 7 via Loma Vista.
Lime Cordiale - Pedestal
Fresh off the back of a six month tour around the UK, Europe and the US for six months, Lime Cordial return with a shimmering new single just in time for summer. The music video, made by regulator collaborator Joe Neathway Brown features a cut and paste, psychedelic collage style and is bloody awesome.

Northlane - Dante
