Tune in and turn up

I have to thank my editor, Pete again for delving into the depths of the vast music video archives over the past few weeks. I’ve since sat my final university exam and now have unemployment, normal drinks prices and one less excuse for my lack of income to look forward to. Check out this week’s top five picks and let us know in the comments if we’ve missed any out.

Black Atlass – Paris (Dir. Paul Labonté)

Fool’s Gold’s latest recruitment is 19-year-old Ontario native, Alex Fleming. “Paris” has that ever-popular smoky NoiR&B sound and we’re certain this teen is set for big things.

AlunaGeorge – You Know You Like It (Dir. Sammy Rawal)

This video just reconfirms my love for Aluna Francis. With the re-release of last year’s hit “You Know You Like It” on July 22, here the London duo hang out in an empty pool with some pretty handy movers.

Pure X – Thousand Year Old Child (Dir. Malcolm Elijah)

In the latest offering from the Austin trio, the video “follows a garden-variety elderly gentleman with a hidden heaping of star power.”

Poliça – Tiff feat. Justin Vernon (Dir. NABIL & Mike Piscitelli)

You know the drill by now, Nabil directs a music video and it makes this list and every other top five list on the web. Lead singer Channy Leaneagh gives her all in this emotional clip.

Chvrches – Gun 

The Glasgow trio have announced September 23 as the release date for their upcoming album The Bones of What You Believe via Virgin/Goodbye Records. Check out their latest set of kaleidoscopic visuals above.
