VIDEO AND SINGLE PREMIERE: TÖRZS – ‘Átfordul’ | Enchanting Post-Rock From The Depth Of The Forest [post rock, noise, indie, rock, trio]
Hungarian post-rock formation TÖRZS released their new single and live music video Átfordul. TÖRZS are presenting their first material since they introduced themselves to the world in grand fashion with 2019’s majestic audio-visual experience Tükӧr. Átfordul is a prelude of things to come for the band, but also a standalone musical and cinematic achievement of its own. Recorded in the Bükk Mountains, Átfordul stands proudly as a definitive next step for the production. The entire experience – music and images – were recorded in a single take, with no cuts, and what the listener hears is not a studio rendition, but rather the direct audio from this session. The band stayed at a small cottage in the forest leading up to the recording, with no electricity or running water, just a solar battery to fulfill basic needs for the shoot. This experience allowed them to tune in to their surroundings, and to get in lock step with their environment in a way that would inform the essence of their performance.

Written during the first week of the pandemic, “Moving in Reverse” is a cathartic emotional release. Over dreamy, atmospheric production, Goldie’s honeyed vocals unfurl as she poignantly describes the fear, isolation and uncertainty she was feeling: “Days go by and I’m still trying to find the way to get out alive / Days go by and I’m still trying to get towards the other side.”

With a chorus that states – “She plays Johnny Cash, Ring of Fire, and Walk the Line. That girl has been known to get out of her mind. What you see is what you get my friends, that girl right there won’t change. She’s the daughter of an outlaw, daddy’s blood runs through her veins –” Fisher brings families together reminding them that outlaw behavior runs deep and it is a trait that should be celebrated.

The Akron, Ohio-based singer-songwriter married his first girlfriend while still in college, and he went from living in his parent’s house to living in the college dorms to starting a family.

Mieko Shimizu releases intense glitchy ‘Phenomena Of The Mind’ video!
‘Phenomena of the Mind’ is a re-mastered EP of selected tracks from the album of the same name released by Mieko Shimizu in 2006, the year after the London Terror attacks. Something dispirited and unexplainable lay heavy in the air off the sprawling city we lived and breathed. In the title song, ‘Phenomena of the Mind’, her intense Japanese rap echoes the deafening noise of the chaotic streets we walk each day. “Visualise”, she said, try to imagine a way to fight your way out of this ominous, dystopian world.
Just reaching out to share with you the exquisite new artpop single from sublime Australian artist, Georgia Fields and her latest offering HOLDING MY HANDS OUT. This is a glorious and edgy indie pop single that teases the ears, it softens as it builds with Georgia’s stunning vocals shining throughout the restrained and cleverly composed track. The bewitching and kaleidoscopic video, collaborated with independent director and cinematographer Rohan Spong is a visual delight, accompanying the music perfectly and capturing the modern and artistic vibe seamlessly. It sees Georgia ominously expel moths from her mouth – firmly reflecting thematic notions of rebirth, and the dark depths of the subconscious.
