Therefore we will feature our favourite video of the week every Wednesday from now on!

“I love creating with people that have a unique eye. The process needs to be fun, so being inspired by each other’s work is important, and I found that with James.” – Bülow*

“Can’t Fix The Things I Left Behind was written in a sleepless night full of panic attacks, overthinking and “oh fuck, oh fuck I fucked up”’s. It started out as a sad instrumental because of how emo I felt, but the more I blustered myself into feeling so helpless about this other person not feeling the same about me anymore, the angrier I got and the more intense the song became. At one point I just went “fuck this” and throwing those distorted guitars in the track, and screamed the vocals lying on my living room floor, just trying to get it all out of my head somehow. Now I really like the raw emotionality and honesty of the track. It takes me back to how I felt that night and how I don’t ever wanna get that frustrated and lonesome again, and it’s kind of apromise to myself to be better and do better in the future. Life goes on, I can’t dwell on what went wrong or what happened in the past, otherwise you just drown in self-pity.” – Philip Brooks*

“We may have songs with darkness, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look to the light. ‘Violet’ is wildly optimistic and for the video we find ourselves in an abandoned building and this time we aren’t feeling sorry for ourselves.” – Sea Girls*

“I wanted this project to amplify a world that is consumed with unjustified hate. A world, where the common denominator of my generation is the fight for hope, unity and the deep desire for equality. Our ideologies are colliding head on with the hate around us, but we are beating it with a bouquet of fucking flowers! I wrote this project about the people I’ve met around the world, the stories I’ve heard and the journeys, that went on inside my own head. The video was shot in Bulgaria with the most incredible young people. They helped me tell this story. They made this video what it is. Thank you.”

It’s about those mechanisms that starts working when you don’t know how to deal with reality.“ – Milky Chance*

“‘Hollow’ is a tropical bedroom jam between me and Look Mum No Computer. It’s pretty much all Fender Tele and Kosmo, the Mad Max garbage synth. In keeping with the themes of 404, it’s all about emptiness.” – Barns Courtney*

“With this video what I wanted to show was a lot of different people in different situations, all reaching some level of comfort within their struggle. That despite whatever hardship they’re enduring, they feel some solace knowing that it will pass and that through love and support from the people closest to them, good times will find them again.” – Dermot Kennedy*

“As the name implies, songs take their time in The Slow Show. This is music built to last. That’s not accidental: singer Rob Goodwin and keyboardist Frederick ’t Kindt spent 18 months honing every note of ‘Lust And Learn’ into shape. Kindt helped establish leading Manchester studio Blueprint and knows the best local strings and brass players, who have helped The Slow Show since the start, while the Halle Youth Choir and vocalist Kesha Ellis act as the perfect counterpoints to Goodwin’s rich, sonorous voice.”*

“Sometimes even summer can be an asshole. There’s something quite cynical about it, when the earth relentlessly flourishes and blooms, while the sun seems to be laughing down at you and your stagnating life. A feeling Máni Orrason is all too familiar with, seeing as his life really didn’t want to hop on that summer train last year. With »Privilege Of Time«, the second single from his upcoming EP »BABY ANGEL«, the young Iceland native delivers his counter reaction to that experience and furthermore presents to us his personal summer hit.”*
