Rounding up a selection of the latest videos from local and international artists alike:

Wolf Alice – Don’t Delete the Kisses

Something a little different Wolf Alice, leaning towards shoegaze and it’s nothing short of brilliant. Singer Ellie Roswell says of the track “I kind of wanted to make one of those head out the window on a long drive tunes. And I wanted to try my hand at like a hold-nothing-back love song.” Don’t Delete the Kisses has all the potential to become something of an anthem for today’s dating world.

Citizen Kay – Static (Feat. Mondecreen)

With a new album only days away, rapper Citizen Kay reveals this cinematic piece featuring fellow Canberreans Mondecreen. The film follows the rapper on the brink of death watching his body being operated on while trying to find the will to hold on and keep pushing ahead.

Slum Sociable – Castle

Castle is the first single taken from the duo’s anticipated debut album, set for release on October 13. A solid groove where electronica meets soul, the track is a real teaser for what we can expect from the record.

Mutemath – War

From their upcoming 5th studio album, War was filmed by Daniel Bowen and edited by Jakub Blank & Daniel Bowen and is a projection of the struggles happening in today’s America.

Lyricist Paul Meanie comments “I still can’t allow myself to fully resign to one side – I keep finding counterpoints to every point and they nag me like a bill collector out to drain me of any currency of optimism. Maybe this constant trial of ideas… is life.”

Jess Locke – Universe

Half stop motion animation and half video,this piece came together by the hands of Jess‘ friends, Marnie Vaughn (Bare Pictures) and Mim Montgomery at Monster House. With an intriguing chorus opening like I’ll break your skin and put my heart into your chest, Jess says the track “touches on that theme of connection and separation, whilst also being colourful and kind of upbeat.”

Banoffee – Ripe

The Ripe video was created alongside previous collaborators, Coco and Maximilian who worked on recent single I’m not sorry, and features performers Aisha and Briana. Banoffee says “I wanted to showcase the friendships I’ve made and the light heartedness that comes with making clanky pop music.” This comes after Banoffee made the move to LA for a fresh start with new collaborators and the aim to create pop that pushes the comfort zone of listeners.
