Hot Ticket PARAMORE Pay Tribute To Fashion Icon VIVIENNE WESTWOOD In New Startling Video

21 February 2023

On 10th February revitalized American guitar pop trio PARAMORE
launched their wildly praised 6th LP This Is Why, their first in 6 years.

NME gave it 5 stars: “The triumphant sound of a band reborn.
The trio’s clear-eyed and powerful sixth album encapsulates their
journey to becoming a generation-defining band.”

For RUNNING OUT OF TIME, one of the album’s
top tracks the band have a video out now.

The song’s themes of anxiety and poor time management come alive
in eye-catching detail in a Ivanna Borin-directed video. The visual finds
frontwoman Hayley Williams in the studio, in vintage Vivienne Westwood
fashion style, confronted with a drum and guitar coming to life. Quiet

This way the band wanted to pay tribute to the iconic fashion
designer who passed away last December, aged 81.

Who: London-based duo – Daphne Ang (Singapore) and
Andrea Papi
(Italy) – that fills a gap in music by bringing
literature, art, and history together into a space where
rock and metal meet electronica.

The metallic poetry duo released their sophomore LP
TRUST NO LEADERS last July. A significant follow-up to
their stunning debut Full Spectrum Buy here.

TCOMAS also released some spectacular video clips for several of both
albums’ tracks. And they have another one out. It’s a visual tour de force
for HYPERMETAMORPHOSIS, a song about ADHD (attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder). A neurodevelopmental disorder characterised
by excessive amounts of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that are
pervasive, impairing in multiple contexts, and otherwise age-inappropriate.

TCOMAS about Hypermetamorphosis (an old term from the 1800s, one of the many which were used to refer to ADHD): “It’s a journey through the ADHD mind. Both the song and video simulate what it is like to have ADHD, both visually and audibly. It shows the chaos, and the cacophony of the ADHD experience, but also its positive sides. The stream of consciousness lyrics, dissonant melodies, and erratic rhythm and structure, recreates a sensory and cognitive experience of how the ADHD brain processes, perceives and interprets the world. The music video was created by us — and also by someone who lives with ADHD. It is a simulation of the world, experienced through the ears and eyes of someone with ADHD.”

Welsh rock trio HOLY COVES fronted by passionate songsmith Scott Marsden
released one of the top albums of 2022 with third longplayer Druids And Bards.

A swirling work of top-notch tunes you go back to,
again and again, once you heard it for the first time.

To keep the momentum going they just released another video for one of
the album’s tracks. The 3rd in a series of 5, following clips for The Hurt Within
and Desert Storm. Check them via the band’s YouTube Channel.

Vid number 3 is for guitar-shiny diamond GREY, also created by award winning
Ukrainian Filmmaker Taras Merenkov. His hazy cinematic style of direction really emphasizes the music and makes a formidable visual.

Fantasy Knights POISON RUÏN Share New Combative Track/Video ‘HÄRVEST’

9 February 2023

Who: Sharp-edged rockers
from Philadelphia.

First single: HÄRVEST (title track).

Mac Kennedy (vocalist/songwriter) “I’ve always found fantasy tropes
to be incredibly evocative. That said, even though they are a set of symbols
that seem to speak to most people of our generation, they are often either
apolitical or co-opted for incredibly backward politics.”

TUTV: After an atmospheric piano intro, Philly‘s fantasy knights get fired
up by high-strung guitars, non-stop drum clobber, and distressed vocals.
Härvest‘s fuzz and buzz rush never looks back and cranks up along its jangly
course. Medieval super knight Ivanhoe is back and he kicks ass.

Heroism in sound and vision.

afford it, play this video, watch OK Panda do it, and pretend you’re on the road

Funhouse sounds like a track from a secret solo Syd Barrett album. Yes, the mentally disturbed genius of the early Pink Floyd days. Folkish psychedelia for the midnight hours. Otherwordly and chilling.

Here comes the freak show.
