So what’s the latest singles in Singles Spin #41? Check out the latest from:
Sydney rockers Lillye released their incredible, scorching version of
The Screaming Jets classic, Better. The fan response was immediate with the track coming straight in at #3 on the iTunes Rock Chart and working it’s way up to the Top Spot at #1 after just a few hours!
The band comment on the video: “It was an absolute pleasure working with the guys from Hired Gun Productions. We are absolutely chuffed with the way they captured the essence and energy of the band and this iconic Aussie song…
…A large cheers to everyone for their ongoing and ever growing support, especially of the new single “Better”. We were knocked for six with landing #1 on Australian Rock Songs iTunes Charts despite having no radio play and being an independent release. Then two days later having the song played on such a classic rock station as Triple M on the same day is truly humbling. Now is a great time to get behind Aussie music and show the rest of the world how resilient our nation is..”
Off the back of her Liberosis EP release, Yorke shares the new video for her EP track Nights We Waste. Filmed during isolation, the video includes Approachable Members Of Your Local Community, Bajillionaire, Coterie, Doolie, Eilish Gilligan, Eliott, Fergus James, Hauskey (and Penny), Japanese Wallpaper, Lakym, Ninajirachi, NOT A BOYS NAME, Shannen James, Sloan Peterson, Tasker, The Million, Winterbourne, and Wolfjay.
Yorke says, “During ISO, I’ve spoken to a few fellow creatives who have noted they feel a big pressure to be creative, when they really just want to take a time out. I loved being able to come together with my mates to create a vid that is just a bit silly and fun…and honestly I never thought a video of me singing into a hairbrush in my bedroom would make it onto the internet. Huge shout out to Jack Alexander (Wolfjay) too, who turned a simple concept into something refreshing.”
Canadian hard rock powerhouse, FORTUNATE LOSERS, have dropped their latest single, Fascist, out now through Golden Robot Records.
In stark contrast to previous single, Tidal Waves, Fascist presents FORTUNATE LOSERS in a new light. It drives the band into a more deep, intense ballad-esque state, with Devon Cox’s emotional vocals cutting through, delivered with genuine sincerity. The track showcases the versatility in this highly talented, up and coming, rock act.
After their latest full-length A Beautiful Place To Drown debuted on a whopping seven Billboard charts last month, (including #122 Top 200, #5 Rock Albums, and #3 Current Alternative), Silverstein are now revealing new visuals from the album in the form of a Madness music video.
The post-hardcore legends, who celebrate a massive 20 years together in 2020, teamed up with critically acclaimed rapper, Princess Nokia for the performance. The video’s technicolored aesthetics compliment the blend of pop sensibility and aggression that fuels the release – a perfect snapshot of Silverstein’s uncanny ability to evolve while remaining true to their core spirit.
Don’t call it a comeback because rumours of the demise of FRANK IERO AND THE FUTURE VIOLENTS have been greatly exaggerated. The band returns in stealth-like fashion to secretly drop the grand finale of their forays into celluloid activity with their new Medicine Square Garden video under the very smokescreen of 4/20 itself.
Being the last video from Iero’s ecstatically received solo record Barriers, Medicine Square Garden caps the evolutionary series of movements that began with the Young and Doomed video almost a year ago. This soon morphed into the opulent energy of Great Party before taking an introspective career-spanning look with Basement Eyes. This quartet of supernatural immersion has now reached its logical conclusion that the end may be nigh with Medicine Square Garden.
Mongolian rock sensation THE HU is releasing a brand-new music video for Wolf Totem featuring Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix. The video is the first from the soundtrack of The Retaliators, a new horror-thriller from Better Noise Films, and features footage from the film.
“I’m honored to be part of such a powerful new blend of rock n roll,” says Shaddix. “The Hu are the real deal. Don’t sleep on this.”
After premiering via triple j’s Good Nights last night, Sydney pop-punk favourites Yours Truly are officially lifting the lid on their first new music for 2020 with their anthemic new single Composure. Yours Truly vocalist Mikaila Delgado explains that Composure captures the warp of anxiety that the end of an on-again-off-again relationship left her in last year.
“‘Composure’ is about trying to keep your cool at the end of a relationship and how difficult it can be. It’s natural to be upset, angry and a million different other emotions at once,” she says. “I wrote it at a time when I really needed to reclaim my self worth after losing so much of it, I was over being miserable waiting for acceptance.”
Leesburg, Virginia-based band My Kid Brother, who are newly signed to Fearless Records, have premiered the video for their new song Daydream over at Alternative Press. The song is now available to stream everywhere!
Watch the colourful clip, which features a clandestine dance party, parrots, and dogs.
“It’s a song about remaining true to yourself with the help of the people that love you for who you are,” says vocalist/guitarist Christian Neonakis. “Social norms have a place, but only if they conform to who you are, not the other way around.”
Lauv debuts the music video for anthemic single for the technology driven generation: Modern Loneliness. Jason Lester, the director of the video, captured the footage entirely remotely while both were in quarantine, and tells the story of Modern Loneliness through the perspective of Lauv’s cell phone. The single is currently #25 at Top 40 radio in the USA and climbing and has over 50 million streams.
The power ballad was written as both a statement and a commentary on society and our relationships with social media, where we are increasingly “alone together”—a sentiment that is even more relevant during this time. Originally set to be shot in LA in early March, the concept was set to be captured with over 100 fans who were going to be reunited with friends they lost touch with, but that shoot was cancelled due to concerns over everyone’s health and safety in the midst of the global pandemic. Lauv did a fan call out for duets on a variety of social media apps (TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram) so that he could still include fans from around the world in the video — including fans as far away as China, Germany and Norway.
Ahead of this week’s release of their eighth studio album, rock icons The Used are delivering an energetic, catchy and captivating new song for fans today with Cathedral Bell.
“It reminds me of being a little kid,” McCracken said . “I had a really hard time with sleeping when I was younger. I just never wanted to go to bed, and when I did, I could never sleep. It just reminds me of being young and in the dark and up way past my bedtime.”
TOWNS are today thrilled to share the incredibly wholesome self-edited music video for their newest single, Stardust. Drummer Daniel Steinert explains the idea to release a DIY video came from being unable to film their original idea due to the current isolation regulations.
“After taking a small break from touring and playing shows last year, it just felt right to have this video capture a glimpse of what we had been up to since the release of ‘Safe To Stay’ and the beautiful, and not so beautiful, places and things we had been through together.
“In a way, I’m glad we missed out on the opportunity to make a bigger budget music video, because the song and video share a time in our lives when it didn’t feel right at all. The reason why everything was worth it, our loved ones, our friends, and everyone that has supported us through TOWNS.”
