The 5 Best New Music Videos of the Week – Blood Orange, Arcade Fire & More

From video debutants to video vets, this week we’ve compiled a list of the latest and greatest music visuals from around the globe. Enjoy.

Waxahatchee – Misery Over Dispute (Dir. Joshua Mikel)

Waxahatchee aka Katie Crutchfield has teamed up with director Joshua Mikel once again after the pair collaborated for “Coast To Coast.” Filmed at Waxahtachee Creek in Alabama, Crutchfield shows her tap-dancing chops in a renovated firehouse in Birmingham.

Deerhunter – Back To The Middle (Dir. Olivier Groulx)

Shot in London, Durassie Kiangangu stars as a bedazzling drag queen whilst lip-syncing along to the track.

Bondax – Giving It All (Dir. Jesse John Jenkins)

The British future-garage groovers made their video debut earlier this week with the release of  “Giving It All.” Shot in Fillmore, California, the clip follows a young couple blazing through the desert. Although all is not as it seems and halfway through the lines get blurred.

Blood Orange – Chamakay (Dir. Adam Bainbridge)

“I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting. The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band Chairlift.” – Dev Hynes

Arcade Fire – Reflektor (Dir. Vincent Morisset)

According to director Vincent Morisset the video follows “a young woman who travels between her world and our own.”

Two of Arcade Fire’s previous videos used code, as well: 2010’s “We Used to Wait” took your childhood home address, and personalized the experience with Google Maps, while 2011’s “Sprawl II” again tasked viewers to direct by using a webcam or mouse.
