#252 Little May – Dust

Pulled from their upcoming self-titled EP, the video for Sydney based indie folk band Little May’s Dust is full of beautiful harmonies intertwined with thoughtful lyrics.

Exploring the process of grieving for a lost pet, the emotive video is easily relatable and takes you into that feeling you get when you miss something you really loved.

#251 The Walking Who – With Roses

Sydney based band ‘The Walking Who’ have released a video for their latest release ‘With Roses’ and isn’t it just lovely! The song itself sounds like a sweet fusion of folk, psychedelia and surf influences decorated with ‘reverb, muffled drum kicks, closed eyes and nodding heads’. To match this the video, produced by American born-Australian based artist L.A.Early, is made up of a series of vintage book and magazine cut outs that seamlessly come together to form an incredible but slightly mind-messing piece of work.

#250 Osca – Illume

Watch one of our new favourites Osca play an acoustic version of their euphoric track ‘Illume’. Osca manages to capture an anthemic simplicity that wouldn’t feel out of place under the umbrella of stadium rock/pop, whilst keeping a sense of integrity through song writing that sounds very mature for their young years.

#249 Rubblebucket – Carousel Ride

Check out the video for Rubblebucket’s song ‘Carousel Ride’. It’s got everything – big hooks, thumping drums, warped scratching and a bold horn section all underneath Kalmia Traver’s sensitive vocals. It’s also an interesting insight in to the mundane workings of a chocolate factory. Tasty.

#247 Robyn Sherwell – The Fear (Ben Howard cover)

We all like a bit of Ben Howard right? How about Robyn Sherwell covering Ben Howard? Yes please. Her version, swirling with soft marimba tones is sparse but captivating and has had quite an effect on us in the office this afternoon. It’s got us even more excited about her headline show on 11 September at The Islington, tickets for which are available HERE.

#243 Among Savages – Start At The Beginning

This recent video from Among Savages for the opening track off his debut album ‘Start At The Beginning’ is lush. A haunting string section compliments Peter Barbee’s vocals as they float and swell through waves of reverb and cinematic guitar work. It’s rich and symphonic and we love it.
