The 5 Best New Music Videos Of The Week – Charli XCX, Flying Lotus & More

In the week that saw the mysterious Captain Murphy unveiled as Flying Lotus (we knew it was him all along) it would be rude not to involve John Coltrane’s favourite nephew in our picks this week. Hot Chip have also made the cut with their weird and wonderful visuals to ‘Don’t Deny Your Heart’ amongst a host of others. Sit back, relax and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Eternal Summers – Good As You (Dir. Abraham Vilchez-Moran)

A beautifully shot set of visuals taking place between a run-down hospital and in a pool underwater. Those long notes held by Yun fit perfectly with the soft focusing of Vilchez-Moran’s vision.

A.C. Newman – I’m Not Talking (Dir. the General Assembly)

You know you’re talented when you manage to turn this mustachioed sleaze into a quivering reck. The New Pornographer’s frontman allows the music to take the forefront in this one and with that beautiful arrangement, we’re certainly not complaining.

Charli XCX & Brooke Candy – Cloud Aura (Dir. Ryan Andrews)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LJOg-yLWbI

Another Tumblr-inspired video from Charli XCX featuring Brooke Candy (you know, the dominatrix power ranger from Grimes’ ‘Genesis’ video).

Flying Lotus – Tiny Tortures (Dir. David Lewandowski)

At times dark and graphic at others breathtakingly beautiful, each set of Fly Lo visuals seems to get more epic than the last.

Hot Chip – Don’t Deny Your Heart (Dir. Peter Serafinowicz)

There’s certainly a twist in the tale here. What starts off as an ode to retro football video games culminates in a huge…see for yourself.
