New Music Video // The XX – Chained

15 Oct

Coexist, the excellent second album from The XX, has been in our playlists long enough now that many of its treasures have been mined by our ravenous ears. It’s a slow burner for sure, not as immediate as their debut, but it’s also more sophisticated in a lot of ways.

And now The XX have released the first visual to go along with Chained, one of my personal faves from Coexist. A hypnotically beautiful video born of Romy Madley-Croft’s imagination, it’s a perfect companion to their dark and mercurial sound.

New Music Video // Washed Out – Amor Fati

21 Sep

Washed Out has released the official video for Amor Fati from his debut album, Within and Without. Directed by Yoonha Park this gorgeous video captures the profound moments of connection set amidst the overwhelming isolation of traveling alone in a foreign land.

To me it's a poetic analogy for life. In the vast and uncompromising emptiness of life it's the little moments and human connections that are the most important.

The fact that it's shot in Iceland, one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, doesn't hurt either.
