Watch: M83 Airs Music Video For "My Tears Are Becoming A Sea"

M83, aka Anthony Gonzalez has aired the video for "My Tears Are Becoming A Sea".

The limited 10th anniversary vinyl edition of Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, will be available April 15. Pre-Order here

The video for “My Tears Are Becoming A Sea” is a prequel to the record’s magical and captivating video trilogy comprised of “Midnight City,” “Reunion,” and “Wait.” Watch the video here.

The initial trilogy chronicled the adventures of supernatural children on the run from forces wishing to capture them in order to study their powers. This new video is directed by Sacha Barbin and Ryan Doubiago and produced by Division.

Reflecting on the prequel’s concept and revisiting the trilogy’s storyline, Barbin and Doubiago say, “this story takes place 10 years earlier in order to highlight the first moment one of these children uses their supernatural gifts. On the way to the hospital and moments before his birth, the child’s parents are victims of a horrible car accident. The unborn child is forced to use his powers to save them from within the womb. The idea was to show the literal birth of a superhero. We wanted to place this story in a realistic and universal setting. We think that the panic created by this magnificent moment speaks to everyone. We also wanted to pay homage to the mothers who are too often absent from the mythology of superheroes. And finally, to go beyond the codes of the genre to carry a symbolic message of hope where future generations would come to save us from a dark fate.”

Watch: slo/tide Reveals Music Video For "Neck High"

Underoath frontman Spencer Chamberlain alt/indie project slo/tide, has revealed the video for his debut single "Neck High".

The song is part of our current playlist and came out last month (November 18). Get it here.

Teaming up on songwriting with alt darlings Sir Sly, slo/tide pulls from a unique blend of influences from acclaimed indie peers fused with the spirit of his hard rock roots to create an impressive body of work that is at once enlightening and arresting.

At times an instantly-listenable perfect poolside soundtrack channeling the classic alt-pop stylings of Foster The People and Tame Impala, while at others diving into dark layers of musical experimentation a la Pink Floyd and Radiohead, slo-tide’s new single should impress both long-time fans of Chamberlain and a whole new audience who are about to discover their new favorite band.

Of "Neck High", Chamberlain comments, "I’ve been writing music since I was a kid and 9 times out of 10 it’s not the heavy music the world knows of me. slo/tide was an idea I started in 2015, but the songs started coming together in 2019-early 2021. "Neck High" was created after jamming with my friends in Sir Sly for over ten hours - the last song I wrote before the pandemic and the first taste for the listener to see how the other side of my brain works. In this song I’m singing to myself in a hopeful tone about how no matter how bad things seem, I’ve always found a way to swim through it. So here's "Neck High" - I hope you enjoy it.”
