Foals Debuts New Animated Video For “Like Lightning”
Today, Foals share a new animated video for their song “Like Lightning,” off their recent album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2. The video was written and directed by the French animator Virginie Kypriotis and was premiered by Music Declares Emergency, an organization which promotes changes to improve environmental practice across the UK music industry. Kypriotis reveals: “After being angered by the world’s greed, malice and ignorance regarding environmental issues, the story’s hero simply decides to run away. The action makes him a kind of contemporary messiah who people turn to as they begin to change their ways. Although the film is about the environment, we wanted to create a new kind of message about it. Rather than just being pessimistic or even too sentimental, the idea was to use our anger to create something funny and hopeful to celebrate the people who are actually doing something about it.”

JOHAN LENOX RELEASES NEW SINGLE WITH VISUAL“NO ONE WANTS TO DANCE ANYMORE” FT. YUNG PINCH!
“Sometimes it feels like no one wants to have fun lately. I don’t know if that’s because people are growing up and our lives naturally take us in different directions, or if it’s because we live in uniquely stressful times where everyone’s struggling to reach adulthood, taking multiple jobs or moving back into their parents’ basement. Maybe both. Yung Pinch can relate— he’s on tour so much that it’s easy to lose touch with longtime friends. In general I think it’s just a lonely time to be coming of age in America right now” – johan lenox

Wilder Maker frontman Gabriel Birnbaum shares new vid to celebrate today’s album release
This might be my favorite recording on the LP, and it’s a pretty pure love song. Not about me and E literally, but it comes from the renewing of my life that i felt when we fell in love, and the melody popped into my head entirely as i walked to her apartment one day.
We had the basic concept and several specific images in mind before we left for the day, but we improvised the shoot as we went, which led to many funny occurrences – such as getting asked to leave the grounds of a fancy private school, lurking outside someone’s house trying to decide if we could go film Ellen dancing in their field at (we didn’t), offending a state trooper who saw Chris filming while standing in the passengers with his head out of the sunroof, trespassing on a private yacht club dock. The people in the diner found us very entertaining, though.” – Gabriel Birnbaum
