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 // M83 – Reunion

30 May

M83 has released the second music video for his double LP album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, and it’s a continuation of the story started in the first video for the track Midnight City, linked below (I recommend watching in HD).


Created by the french directorial duo Fleur & Manu, both of these videos manage to capture the innocence and wonder of childhood extremely well, both in their story and their visual style. Personally I think they represent the best of what can be done with the short form storytelling of music videos.

Here’s the new video for M83’s Reunion. Enjoy.
