Just Watch: White Lies – Take It Out On Me

White Lies Words: Gary Lambert Three years has passed since we were last able to listen to something new from White Lies – and when you watch this video it stretches it out a little bit longer with a Robert Rodriguez inspired vision of Mexico.

Just Watch: Joseph J Jones – The Video

Joseph J Jones Words: Elena Katrina You have no idea where this song, The Video, will take you when it first begins, it’s slow dance toward you, teases your senses and allows Joseph J Jones‘ superb vocal to take the spotlight. This is a grower of a tune, it suckers you in after a few … Continue reading

Just Listen: Syd Arthur – Sun Rays

Syd Arthur Words:  Georgia-Mae Blackman The four British psych rockers Syd Arthur take an opportunity and grab it fast to release their new single Sun Rays. With a strong start, a cheerful and sunny (pardon the pun!) intro gets me instantly liking Sun Rays. I found that they have have similar qualities to Tame Impala, … Continue reading
