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 Arlo Parks, boygenius, Dorthia Cottrell, Fascinator, Lael Neale, PACKS, Shygirl, Truth Cult, Water From Your Eyes, Youth Lagoon & Yves Tumor!

A beautifully haunting song & video combo from U.S. metal band Windhead vocallist Dorthia Cottrell. The first single from her forthcoming Death Folk Country album (out April 21), both the song and video live up to the song and album's names.

Water From Your Eyes - Barley

New York City art-pop duo Water From Your Eyes' new single of addictive, dichotomous sounds sees the pair star in an equally experimental and engaging video, cutting rapidly between scenes ranging from a brutalist office to the desert. New album Everyone's Crushed is out May 26.

Youth Lagoon - Idaho Alien

Cult favourite alt-pop artist Youth Lagoon makes their return seven years after retiring from music with a soft yet powerful new single that pulls at the heartstrings, while the video sees an emotional running away from home story play out. New album Heaven is a Junkyard is out June 9.

Yves Tumor - Heaven Surrounds Us Like A Hood
