UNLEASH THE ARCHERS Release New Lyric Video for “Heartless World” TODAY

In “Heartless World”, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS show the world what they are made of. The band manages to give the original glam metal track by Teaze an unexpected, modern power metal twist. Combining that with an astonishingly wide range of vocal melodies, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS surprise and bewitch the listener yet again. A clean guitar intro makes you feel almost melancholic, but when the second chorus hits, at the very least, you’ll be tapping your foot. “Heartless World” describes how everything can become too much from time to time, and that sometimes all you need is to unplug and recharge your energy. Watch the lyric video accompanying the single below and lose yourself in an FM headphone high!

The Orielles Share New Track “Come Down On Jupiter”

Talking about the video, Rose comments: “When I first heard the track I was immediately transported into some sort of mystery melodrama from another era, with a strong dose of something psychedelic. This was my starting point, alongside an image by photographer, Ralph Gibson, of a cup of tea sitting on a beige table, bathed in warm sunlight with a plastic spoon resting against the lip. I enjoyed the idea of centring the video around an incident with a cup of tea – that felt dramatic to me – something “mundane” becoming something dramatic. I wanted to encapsulate the playful psychedelia in a psychological and structural way as opposed to the ‘pastiched to death’ VW campervan kind of way. Add to that toast and the rest developed from there.”

Kingsbury Shares “Breaking Apart” Video With The 405 | New Single Out Now On All DSPs

On Friday, Kingsbury shared “Breaking Apart,” a stunning 80’s inspired video, with The 405. The track combined with the fitting visual, embodies quintessential cinematic tropes of the decade. “Breaking Apart” is the soundtrack heard at the climax of the 80’s best blockbusters.

Caroline Kingsbury describes the video as, “a beautiful chasm left behind after coming out to myself as queer…two halves of myself were crashing into each other for so long and finally being honest resulted in self-compassion and this song.”

New > Lung Dart share ‘A Thousand People Floating’

This November experimental duo Lung Dart release their most accomplished record to date: ‘Slouching Towards Meridian’. Inspired by the Rest Zone of the long-defunct Millennium Dome, their latest LP draws on the pair’s shared sense of millennial melancholia across twelve tracks of submerged songwriting and woozy ambience. Combining unorthodox production techniques, with an ear for melody, the result is a spellbinding reflection on growing up with the 21st century.


Co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox, Oli comments, “‘in the dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort. We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”

Seefeel share previously unreleased song “Rough For Radio”

The session was a combination of previously prepared material and live recordings in the BBC studios. Seefeel’s Mark Clifford recalls, “It seemed a waste to be in this legendary location and not to try and create something new there. Given the stress of the reality of what that meant under the time constraints we had, it might not have been the best move, but I sat on the floor, samples loaded, sequencer running and somehow managed to get it done. Sarah was kind of put on the spot in terms of coming up with a vocal.”
