Röyksopp – I Had This Thing

Taken from their 2014 album The Inevitable End, Röyksopp have released the video for single ‘I Had This Thing’.

Courtney Barnett – Dead Fox

Told in mutely coloured animations of animals tearing down on humans, Courtney Barnett‘s ‘Dead Fox’ is one of the brightest and poppiest tracks on the record, but also one of the most politically weighted. A powerful argument against the destructive powers of big business, raging against the death and destruction caused by corporations, simply to “bring us the best price”.

The Fjords – All In

Of latest video ‘All In’ vocalist Petter Vågan says, “The music video is ambiguous when it comes to drawing a line between reality and fantasy. Where the fantastical aspect ends and reality takes over, is up the individual viewer. Thematically you have the smaller, personal story – which is the young kid dealing with his oppressors. On a larger scale, we wanted to shed light on the incredible speed of technological developments, both in online social networks, gaming, TV, etc, and our place in it, as humans. We´re living amidst the biggest social experiment to date, and ethical boundaries can get blurry when we´re in the thick of it.”
