CHVRCHES feat. Wednesday Campanella – “Out of My Head”
Scottish indie synthpop outfit CHVRCHES are currently mid-tour, following the release of their third studio album, “Love is Dead,” and are continuing that momentum with new single + accompanying animated visual, “Out of My Head,” featuring Japanese trio Wednesday Campanella. In true Japanese collaboration, the video features colorful anime characters floating through space and riding an Amtrak through the sky. The song includes Japanese lyrics meshing smoothly with CHVRCHES’ signature layers of catchy synth melodies and vocal harmonies. Watch the stunning video for “Out of My Head” below, and catch CHVRCHES in Austin at this year’s ACL Fest.
St. Lucia – “A Brighter Love”
What’s Monday without a little social commentary, no? South African indie electronica group St. Lucia are set to release their highly-anticipated third studio album, “Hyperion,” this September, and teased the record with new single “A Brighter Love,” released in late June. A few days ago, the band put out an interesting new video for the single, which features various characters sucked into their phones (literally), a floating disco ball, and one main protagonist who eventually retreats to nature in the hopes of, perhaps, a… “Brighter Love?” Check out the thought-provoking visual take on the hit single below:
