The Soft Moon premieres the caustic emulsions of “Choke”

The Soft Moon has released the third video from the upcoming fourth studio album ‘Criminal’out February 2nd, 2018 via Sacred Bones.

This time minimal and pixelated text scrolls up and down a static screen in the Kelsey Henderson directed video for the numbing and percussive emulsions that is “Choke”—a song about the amplifying and anesthetizing effects of a problematic substance to which many musicians are not unfamiliar.

“I created ‘Choke’ as a theme song to my recurring corruptive behavior,” says Vasquez. “It’s emblematic of my sleepless nights, wandering the streets of Berlin like some paranoid animal, while capturing the unbearable sound of my pulsating heart deep inside my chest. Full of ego and full of fear at the same time”

Oakland California’s dark post-punk three piece Ötzi are sharing with us the  the video for title track is from their recently released album, ‘Ghosts’  released this past September on Near Dark and Last Hour Records.

The the video is a mournful procession resonating with the immeasurable loss felt by not only those in the Bay Area, but the entirety of the international music and arts scene.

Camera work for ‘Ghosts’ by photographer Kevin Brown and videographer Rissy, with additional camera work by Post-Consumer and Akiko,

The band go to to explain their concept for the video:

The video for Ötzi’s “Ghosts” was created in memory of those who died in the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland last December 2, 2016. Some of those lost in the fire were friends, some were acquaintances, and some we only knew through their art. On the anniversary of their passing, we are joined by their loved ones and survivors in creating tribute to them, and speak to them in the way they spoke to us. This video is about anger and regret, the intersection between public and private mourning, and the thinning of the veil between the living and the dead.

Paradox Obscur set the tone for a dark night out in Athens in their video for ‘In Control’

Synth duo Paradox Obscur have followed up the video for the track Twilight, with another fantastic short film set to the music from their Artifact LP—this time for the track In Control.

The high quality video production for In Control is courtesy of “Press Eject and Give me the Tape” and took place in the underground areas in the heart of Athens with the participation of performer Aggelos Samiotis, as he embarks on a evening of drinks and dancing that begins of course, with hair and makeup—encapsulating the archetype of the Gothic/New-wave flaneur.

Did you spot the And Also The Trees poster on the wall? Or the Neubauten tattoo?

Artifact is out now via Young & Cold Records (DE) on  white carved vinyl
