London-based indie rock/garage trio Dream Wife have aired the video for their new single "Hasta La Vista".
The song is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album 'So When You Gonna...', which will be out on July 3 via Lucky Number, pre-order your copy here.
The band's words: Featuring baby Alice, Bella & Rakel. The video for Hasta la vista was 25 years in the making. Shot by our parents in Cali, Coventry and Cornwall; the video shows us going about our young lives totally unaware of each other and our converging timelines. At a moment where, for many of us, time appears to be moving differently; slowing tremendously, slipping out of the structured week it seems apt to turn our eyes to the past, in order to acknowledge it, be thankful for it and move into the future. Some people believe the future is ahead and the past is behind and we are charging forward, some believe the future is behind and the past in front as we can only look into the past and others believe that time moves in spirals moving inwards and upwards carrying the lessons learned all around us front back side to side. Saying goodbye to childhood and hello to sisterhood while acknowledging that we were sisters then and still children now. Heh despite Bella's dad being a film maker she had actually never seen any baby footage until he developed this batch of super 8 film for her mums birthday last year...
Los Angeles-based psychedelic/dream rock band Triptides have dropped their new single "Latitudes", and b-side "Cassius".
Both tracks are out now via Greenway Records. Pre-order your copy here.
Triptides frontman Glenn Brigman says: “When SXSW was cancelled, it was just our first instinct to retreat and make the most out of our time together. We went out to Joshua Tree, set up in a house we rented and spent three days with our heads down recording. Every time we looked up, the world was different. For the first time, we were creating music in a time when we had no idea what was becoming of our society and our world. A few days after we got back to L.A., they started announcing the lockdown.”
“both tracks dance around the desire to find new beginnings in the unknown – a theme that will no doubt resonate with listeners during this unique moment in time."
“We all tread the ground between the search for comfort and the challenge to grow, and how you perceive your environment has so much to do with that balance,” Brigman shared. “We’re finding now, and what these songs express, is that even if we’ve surrounded ourselves with beauty – even on an idyllic island – that nothing is easy, nothing is final, and we must always seek to find our own path.”
Miami post punk/dark wave band Astari Nite have revealed the video for their latest single "Capulet Loves Montague".
The song is taken from the upcoming album 'Here Lies', which will be out on May 8th. Pre-order your copy here.
“Capulet Loves Montague tells the tale of heartbreak and woe. How two people can fall in love but ultimately will be their undoing.” says frontman Mychael. “Lyrically, “Capulet Loves Montague” came to life while my 11-year young best friend and I were fooling around with crayons on a rainy evening. Perhaps it was the colors that made it clear, a nursery rhyme was being created. A feeling of innocence came over me when the words “Christmas trees are frozen spiders, Cats are made from snow, terrified by what I think of, petrified in love” were written. I’m obsessed with silliness, which is often mistaken for my sadness, especially when it comes to storytelling.” He adds.
The video was directed by the band and Ileana Escalante. Watch it below.
