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 Everything But The Girl, Feist, Fenne Lily, Kian & Becca Hatch, OK Cool, Sweetie, The Lemon Twigs, Tinariwen, Tzusing & Xylouris White.
Everything But The Girl - Run A Red Light
The third single from the British duo's comeback album sees them slowing things down after a few club bangers, delivering a powerful, stripped back ballad, with the music video once again featuring some absolutely stunning choreography in a spacious mansion setting. New album Buzzin' out April 21.
Feist - Borrow Trouble
After giving us three singles at once from her forthcoming first record in six years, Canadian indie icon Feist delivers the slow-building Borrow Trouble alongside a trippy, clever music video that turns a studio space into a kaleidoscopic psychedelic wonderland. New album Multitudes out April 14.
Fenne Lily - In My Own Time
The music video for British singer-songwriter's new cut of irresistible indie-alt-folk explores the "twisted aspects of a love that’s found in the midst of chaos and the subsequent feeling of being inanimate in your own story. All that, in the style of Terminator 2.” Yeah, it's as fun and quirky as it sounds. New album Big Picture out April 14.
Kian & Becca Hatch - All of Me
The soaring new cut of emotive, breakbeat infused pop from emerging Aussie's Kian & Becca Hatch features a playful video that sees the pair jump on some bikes and leave it all behind.
OK Cool - nissanweekends
Probably our fave video of the week comes from Chicago indie rockers OK Cool and this incredible new stop motion video that sees the main inhabitant of a cuckoo clock turn it into a time machine. New album fawn is out April 28.
Sweetie - Liminal Bliss
The video for the latest rollicking single from Sydney rockers is extremely track title appropriate, seeing the band jam out in the liminal space that is an empty office building, providing a fun dichotomy between the sterile space and Sweetie's lively presence.
The Lemon Twigs - In My Head
Retro-pop-revivalists The Lemon Twigs give us their latest single of jangly catchiness alongside a delightful, nostalgic, timeless beach-themed music video. New album Everything Harmony out May 5.
Tinariwen - Tenere Den
Tuareg desert rockers announced their ninth studio album Amatssou with the enchanting Tenere Den, complete with a simple yet elegant & hypnotic, animated music video. New album Amatssou out May 19.
Tzusing - 偶像包袱 (Idol Baggage)
The video for Malaysian experimental techno wizard Tzusing's new single of claustrophobic, boundary-pushing, meditative dance music explores a monolithic anti-flood tank structure in Japan that protects from tsunamis, and the visual and music couldn't match any better. New album 绿帽 (Green Hat) out March 31.
Xylouris White - Long Doll
A clever and slightly unnerving video set in a ballerina music box accompanies the third single from Greek-Australian avant garde duo's forthcoming new album. The Forest In Me is out April 14.
