Music Video Roundup : Wild Nothing, Man Tear, Young Wonder
Appetizer: Regardless of whether you were a child of the 80's or not, 'A Dancing Shell' from the Virginia/NY based dream pop band Wild Nothing carries and upbeat sound and cheerful retro visuals to kick off the weekend. With visuals provided by the eclectic Eric Shaw, whose main tools are comprised of gouache, ink and wildly psychedelic thoughts, the entire affair carries a rather pleasant Talking Heads vibe to it.
Entree: A dose of cosmic disco pop is in order from the debut track of the Stockholm based Man Tear, comprised of Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist. Featuring a whimsical dose of bubbly beats and cheesy lyrics set to visuals of awkward international travel footage in low budget hotels, it's all in good fun. Amore means 'love' in Italian, fyi.
Dessert: Hailing from Cork in Ireland, Young Wonder offers us a haunting, mystical track featuring the incredible vocals of Darragh Nolan of the Sacred Animals. The onslaught of mountainous, natural imagery overlaid at a frenzied pace complements the wonderfully eclectic sound of the track. Keep your eyes out for this duo, they're going places.
