Our favorite California rockers Bleached just debuted their official video for “Dead In Your Head” off their new album Ride Your Heart on Complex.com. The colorful, psychadelic visual was directed & edited by Lowlands and Sean Lee.
When we first met Gauntlet Hair and were getting to know their likes and interests, one was a little more unusual than the rest: they collect Arnold Schwarzenegger movies on VHS. No one knows what the world record number of copies of Commando is, but we would imagine for that they are in the running. Their fascination with the Austrian Oak and the unintentional hilarity level of most of his films were the inspiration behind the “Top Bunk” video.
Directed by William Doyle of Neighborhood Watch, “Top Bunk” features many of Schwarzenegger’s films with sub characters that are iconic to his fans and also includes footage from a very rarely-seen trailer of The Terminator.
Gauntlet Hair just kicked off their winter tour in Bloomington, IN last night and will bring their super energetic live show to the east coast in the next week. Dates are here!
We have a brand new music video for Gauntlet Hair’s “Keep Time” that premiered today at SPIN.com. Directed and produced by Bernardo Pantoja and Skyler Stevenson for Wooden Lens, the video features mirror-eyed ghouls that come to live at night. The ghouls are hunted by another entity and prowl the streets (shot in SE industrial-sector Portland). The goal for Wooden Lens was to “echo the beautiful texture and disturbing tone” of the song, and color me disturbed – this video is so scary and cool!
The new video for “Love is All” (from the album The Wild Hunt), features vintage Super 8 footage compiled by director Johan Stolpe. So often The Tallest Man on Earth’s music is said to be informed by the American landscape, but to watch the video for “Love is All” is to look into those preconceptions and have the images display another side of Kristian Matsson’s origin.
Dead Oceans would like to present the official music video for Sun Airway’s “Put the Days Away,” directed by Ricardo Rivera of KLIP Collective.
Night has fallen upon Philadelphia, and our heroine is making her way through the streets on her bicycle. Something is wrong, and the sight of happy couples are certainly not helping. She arrives home, soaked from the rain and begins to put the day away. Her unconscious mind becomes animated for us, a gorgeous combination of visual projections previously seen for Sun Airway’s “Oh, Naoko,” “Infinity,” and “Waiting On You.”
Sun Airway’s upcoming album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, will be released on October 26th in North America and is now available for pre-order at SC Distribution. All pre-orders include an instant MP3 download of the entire album.
