Watch: The Psychedelic Furs Air "Wrong Train" Music Video

New Wave legends The Psychedelic Furs have aired the video for their latest single “Wrong Train".

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their album 'Made of Rain', which came out in July 2020 via Cooking Vinyl. Grab your copy here.

Richard Butler: “‘Wrong Train’ continues the black and white textured, mysterious feel of the previous videos from ‘Made Of Rain’. It was a pleasure working along with Hans Neleman on this project. The creativity Hans, Peter Sebastian and their team brought shows in every frame. Much like in paintings, imagery in this video is altered to where it is seen in an entirely different way.”
For the video, director Hans Neleman drew inspiration from Furs’ frontman Richard Butler’s paintings. “Wrong Train" explores the theme of a disintegrating relationship and the idea was to deliver something rooted in a more abstract realm rather than illustrating the lyrics literally. I photographed and filmed Richard while painting his face as if he were delivering an art performance” Neleman says. Restricted by Covid-19 limitations, the video was shot in Neleman’s home-studio in Connecticut and at Michelson Studios in upstate New York. After the shoot, the photographic material was handed over and digitally manipulated by Peter Sebastian.

Watch: Hollow Graves Drop New Single/Video "Marriott"

Canadian indie rock/new wave band Hollow Graves have dropped the video for their new single "Marriott".

From the band: "Earlier in the pandemic, our lead singer and his girlfriend found themselves living in a hotel after a flood-from-above destroyed their fifth storey apartment in downtown Toronto. 
Being secluded in the hotel for two months led them to contemplate their relationship, which is reflected in our new song. 'Marriot' leans into the garage side of our music, with a fresh element that lends itself to communicating the mental struggle at the heart of the lyrics."

New Entry: Jeshua Release New Single "IDK"

Glasgow-based introspective dream pop artist Jeshua (aka Joshua Gray) has released his new single "IDK".

The song presents a shift in space and tone for Jeshua with darker sounds, driving melodies, and an ethereal backdrop.

Lyrically, it offers cynical reflections on adulthood and careerism—the disillusionment that comes with “growing up”.

His introspective dream-pop encapsulates the everyday experiences of a fly-on- the-wall shop assistant, drawing from feelings of disconnection and the need for distraction from programmed living.

Take a listen below.

Watch: Margot Unleash "Falling In Between Days" Music Video

London indie rock/dream pop/alt five-piece Margot have unleashed the video for their latest single "Falling In Between Days".

The song is part of our current playlist and is out now b/w "Walk With Me". Get it here

From the band: It's about a mate. It's certainly a tragedy. He's had a hardship of sorts.
He's got a life to look forward, for sure, and so do all of us, but things external, out of his control, took over. He had started to rebuild, to see beyond the internal damp colours, he had a life back. And after losing the comfort of the person he loved, and after coming to terms with all of the pain and the rubble, all the regret, he had a pandemic. Lost job, no soulmate and back living with his family at 27.

He dreamed of an ideal life; he dreamt that he could change his circumstances, he fought against a raging brute that cared little for his dreams, for his determination. He just had to sit and wait, sit and wait, and be still with his ambitions.
It's about fear, loss, uncertainty, pain, hope and then the recoiling turgid desire for familiarity.
