6 Great New Videos You Need To Watch
A visual feast to accompany some of our favourite songs – including one in 360.
Childish Gambino – ‘Me and Your Mama’
Following the release of “Awaken, My Love!”, Childish Gambino‘s hugely-anticipated third full length album, the multi-talented artist has revealed a 360 degree view of his performance at PHAROS VR. Filmed at Joshua Tree before the album was released, the 360 take provides an intimate display of ‘Me and Your Mama‘, and a glimpse at what’s to come when Gambino makes his way to Australia this summer. Catch the legend headlining Field Day in Sydney, and Falls Festival over New Year at Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay, and Fremantle.
DMA’S – ‘Play It Out’
To add some context, this is the first song that DMA’S ever recorded as a band and it features a clip created by their good mate, Mitch Grant – who they threw a ‘twenty’ for putting it together at the time. The video features scuzzy VHS like tapes of the band wandering the streets and kicking shit in their apartment, overlaid with floral decals. Money well spent, but nostalgia is priceless.
Dorsal Fins – ‘High Low’
If Minecraft was a real life video, it would look something like this. Directed by Tim Hillier, the glitchy vid features the 9-strong collective, aka Dorsal Fins, wandering the Warburton Redwood Forest in Victoria, creating a very pixelated, techni-coloured odyssey.
You to can get in the zodiac, by heading along to their Digital Zodiac tour come March 2017. Tix and details of their month long national tour can be found here.
Tkay Maidza – ‘Simulation’
Tkay Maidza‘s new track ‘Simulation’ now features a killer video for the infectious dance track. Opening with an enchanting silhouette, the visual work sees the performer dancing in front of various neon-lit backdrops. Directed by the amazing duo, Lamar & Nik, who have worked with the likes of Deep Sea Diver, Pixies, and even Adidas, sure nailed the brief with this one.
Tkay will be hitting up the stage at the 2017 Australian Open, which also features a bunch of local and international acts including DMA’S, The Temper Trap, Bad//Dreems, Jimmy Eat World, The Living End, Missy Higgins and many more. Tickets to the Aus Open are on sale now.
