Music videos are artistic extensions of the songs themselves, with many visual accompaniments becoming just as, if not more iconic than the songs they were 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 Flight Facilities, HOMESHAKE, illuminati hotties, Jon Hopkins, Kaiit, La Luz, Polish Club, SPEED, Suzie True and The Southern River Band!

Flight Facilities - Days of the Week

Beloved Aussie electronic duo follow-up their summer anthem Trouble with a fresh cut of bouncy, four-to-the-floor hip house vibes, teaming up with Los Angeles-based vocalist Aramis from indie band Enumclaw, who also stars in the music video. Boogying his way around iconic L.A. scenery, the montage-style video sees most of the lyrical references brought to life… and damn I feel like high end sushi at Nobu after watching. Out now via Future Classic.

HOMESHAKE - Nothing 2 See

After already dropping one album (that I’m ashamed to admit slipped under our radar!) this year in the form of March’s CD Wallet, Canadian dream pop groove lord  Peter Sagar AKA Homeshake is nowhere near done with 2024 as he announces his second record for the year, Horsie, alongside woozy new single Nothing 2 See. Assumingly taking inspiration from the track’s title, the video features HOMESHAKE chilling at a bizarre, fever-dream-esque daytime house party, complete with mysterious smokey liquid drinks. HOMESHAKE’s new album Horsie is out June 28 via SHHOAMKEE.

illuminati hotties - Can't Be Still

After the delightfully surprising feature on local fave and already lovely lad Noah Dillon’s Broken But It Works in 2022, L.A.’s Sarah Tudzin is back with new music as illuminati hotties - her first solo sounds in three years with the engrossing and grungy indie-pop that is Can't Be Still. Gorgeously shot and initially unassuming, the video sees Sarah exploring some inner city suburban streets before the whole thing gets twisted into a beachside desert oasis dance party.

Jon Hopkins - RITUAL (evocation)

Check out what we had to say about the stunning new Jon Hopkins single, video and album announce earlier in the week!

Kaiit - Space

We covered the long awaited return of Kaiit earlier in the week here.

La Luz - I’ll Go With You

Jangly American psych-pop four-piece La Luz’s new album is out in just a few weeks, with I’ll Go With You the gorgeous latest taste, a mellow cut that frontwoman Shana Cleveland explains was “heavily influenced by Yanti Bersaudara, a group of Indonesian sisters who released some of my very favorite music originally released in the mid ’60s and early ’70s.” As is often the case with Cleveland’s music video, a nostalgic, DIY and often bizarre approach is the order of the day, complete with googly eyed hand puppets, fake moustaches, flower arrangements and super close up make outs. La Luz’s new album News Of The Universe is out May 24 via Sub Pop.

Polish Club - Manila

SPEED - REAL LIFE LOVE

Currently on tour with Knocked Loose and Show Me The Body (what I wouldn’t do to be able to attend one of those shows, damn….), one of Australia’s finest hardcore exports, Sydney five piece SPEED return with their first new music since 2022 - and it’s a ripper, announcing their debut album alongside heart warming yet crushingly heavy new single, Real Life Love. Exploring unconditional love and loyalty (the platonic kind), Real Life Love’s music video sees the bros showing love with plenty of hugs, food sharing and jamming… and some aggression. SPEED’s debut album ONLY ONE MODE is out July 12 via Last Ride (Aus) and Flatspot (World).

Suzie True - LEECHES (PLAY DEAD!)

L.A.’s Suzie True describe their sound as if the “Powerpuff Girls started a Blink-182 cover band” and I’ll be damned if that doesn’t sum it up perfectly, but the results are way more infectious than you can imagine, like their new earworm Leeches (Play Dead!). An ode to no longer being a people pleaser from a female perspective, three minute blistering cut of pop punk features a video that sees the band jamming out, interspersed with a series of humorous and witty scenes. Out now via Get Better Records.

The Southern River Band - Vice City III

Helllllll yeah. Six years on from the release of Vice City (that they played for us in an iconic live session), W.A.’s premiere rock and rollers The Southern River Band are back with part three and it might just be the most rocking and raucous so far, taking all the best things about late 70s/early 80s rock and metal kicking in screaming into 2024. The music video sees the boys jamming the hell out on the shores of Fremantle, in front of the iconic shipping docks as the sun sets and the ante ups.

Enjoy all these tunes as well as our favourite singles of the week and a stack of other new music we've been feeling in our Spotify playlist.
