Zola Drops New Music Video For “Not Like Other Girls”

The moody and cathartic video combines performance with cinema and showcases Zola in her favorite element. It is the perfect visual companion for the tongue-in-cheek single released earlier this month. The director of the music video, Jamie Leuchs-Curtis says, “Not Like Other Girls is a music video created to be an extension of qualities I saw in Zola’s personality and the way she talked about the aesthetic of this song. The video has some thematic elements here and there but at the end of the day Zola and I decided that this music video wouldn’t be telling a particular story or sending some grand message but would embody Zola being Zola. And I think that’s what we did.”

CARRiNGTON MacDUFFiE Releases Lyric Video for “Baby Played Me”

“This is really an homage to musicianship in the form of a mod, lovelorn ballad. The footage was captured in a couple of different studios in Nashville, in a rehearsal studio and a flat in Glasgow, and one shoot took place in a former factory in that city, unheated, in the middle of an ice storm. It was barely above freezing, so the five of us band members either kept moving for the video camera, or we huddled around the single space heater — and had a blast. Drummer Allan James gets the tough-guy prize for wearing only a turtleneck,” shares MacDUFFiE.

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and founding member of The Hooters, Eric Bazilian, is set to release his fifth and final single prior to the release of his long-awaited new album Bazilian. Titled “Back In The 80s,” the song may at first seem like a glorified look back on a very successful time (the heyday of The Hooters)—a simple nostalgic ode in a time of isolation.

Our Band’s Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter directly inform how hundreds of thousands of students and adults experience the arts — either on the stage, in the classroom, or behind the scenes. Collectively, they have written, produced and performed thousands of concerts in a variety of genres, led instrument and chorus programs in schools, and designed curriculums for Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School and the Center for Arts Education. Passionate young leaders in the arts, they possess very different skills and approaches. Their debut album together, Bright as You will be released June 25. The 13-song collection finds shared ground between the two artists’ wide-ranging interests, and its retro-savvy production would happily fit in among any of the AM radio stations of yesterday.

In Angelides’ own words “The EP is built upon double entendres. It sometimes reflects the complexity of womanhood and what it means to be a woman in the modern age. There are masked secret desires; dominance is juxtaposed with submissiveness; pain and sorrow are married with folly and a hopeful sense of humour.”

GRAMMY-Award winning Afrofusion superstar Burna Boy graces the cover of British GQ

“For many, including the artist himself, the win for Burna Boy was bigger than Burna Boy – bigger than the Grammys and ceremonies and silverware. It was a time stamp on an era that has seen a dispersed diaspora come together in song and, in that reunion, display the richness of their varying cultures and heritages to a watching world. Among the music of contemporaries such as Wizkid and Skepta, Burna Boy stands at the vanguard.”
