The 5 Best New Music Videos Of The Week – Blood Orange, Santigold & More

From L.A to London to Iceland, this week we bring you the best visuals from all over the globe. We’ve got offerings from some exciting newcomers as well as the big names. What’s your favourite video on the list? Any we missed? Let us know in the comments section below.

Sin Fang – Look At The Light (Dir.  Máni M. Sigfússon)

As someone who can (almost) justify spending the majority of their time sniffing out new music, I feel it my duty to share some of my lesser-known finds with you highsnobs out there. Sin Fang is Sindri Már Sigfússon’s solo project and is reminiscent of fellow Icelandic folkies, Of Monsters And Men. Expect big things from the Seabear frontman.

Santigold – Girls (Dir. Weird Days)

If there’s one thing this video showcases perfectly it’s the sassiness of the fairer sex. Starring women of different shapes, sizes and diversities this really is a celebration of life in full bloom.

SBTRKT – Trials Of The Past (NSFW) (Dir. Ross Anderson)

Aaron Jerome is a master at creating ethereal, other-worldly vibes with his music, it just so happens Ross Anderson is a worthy visual adversary. Some of the worst decisions of my life have been haircuts but i’d happily rock a mullet again if it meant avoiding this mess.

Kindness – Cyan (Blood Orange version) (Dir. Ben Fries)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjwmEnWgrck

I was lucky enough to be lurking late night on the Blood Orange SoundCloud earlier this week when Dev posted this song with the message ‘Last night as a break from production work I’ve been doing, I decided to cover my good friend Adam “Kindness” Bainbridge’s song “Cyan”.

Bainbridge obviously liked the cover and made a video for the track with some unused footage from the original video. Isn’t that the coolest thing ever?

Rare Times – No One’s Looking Out (Dir. Mike Harris & Barney Patterson aka Sus Boy)

This is one of those songs that feels ahead of its time. The sultry bassline, retro synths and frontman Anthony Calonico’s silky tones are a perfect blend. Harris and Sus Boy’s visuals only add to the sensual vibes – think Miami Vice on a modern lo-fi flex. My favourite video of the week.
