Stay Home, Stay Safe And Watch All The Startling Clips By Steamy Squad ELEFANT…

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes…


13 April 2020

My favorite sonic lunatics ELEFANT hit the scene back in 2015. They are the diabolic masters of metallic sludge madness. They are sound-exploring motherrockers who
open your doors of perception. They are a bunch of mind-boggling crusaders who take
no prisoners. They evolved into one of the most fascinating bands in the universe. They’re puzzlingly adventurous on record, on stage and on video. To brighten your duty-bound days at home Turn Up The Volume assembled all the band’s mental video clips, so far.

Take some popcorn, dim the lights and enjoy the Elefant Cinema starting with the rapid eye movement clip for the title track of their new stunning album…

4 May 2020

Vancouver’s alluring singer/songwriter DAN BEJAR and his band DESTROYER released their 12th much-acclaimed album ‘HAVE WE MET‘ last January. One of the highlights is ‘FOOLSSONG’. A moody lullaby. Both melancholic and somber.

1 May 2020

Despite the spooky lockdown days London’s socially engaged post-punk duo DEUX FURIEUSES keeps actively busy. Early last month the pair released affecting reverie ISOLATION DAYS with all proceeds going to UK’s National Health Secure. You can still
buy the track for only 1 pound and contribute to a great cause. If all major acts around
the world would do the very same thing the global health secure organizations and its fantastic workers would get a tremendously well-deserved boost.

And today the wonderful tandem of Vas & Ros shared a pretty impressive lyric video
for WORDS OF WARNING, a stirring highlight of their second longplayer MY WAR IS
. The ladies show how you can make something special and eye-catching without outrageously high budgets. This is solid proof that inventiveness, creativity
and most of all the confident will to make something truly worthwhile with little
means is actually possible.

Here’s why…

THE MEDICINE DOLLS Share Lively Video Clip For Their Smoking Single ‘VICIOUS LITTLE SISTER’

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

25 April 2020

Cape Town’s glaring no-nonsense garage rockers THE MEDICINE DOLLS released steamy single ‘VICIOUS LITTLE SISTER‘ last month. A smoking hot crackerjack, a nasty psychobilly stunner, a thunderous barnstormer with a gloriously sizzling chorus. Frontman Greg Allen‘s spits and sneers from start to finish turning this bang-up belter into one of the best riff slams so far, this year. And the best news is that their debut album is coming soon.

And now the band just released a video clip featuring
mad live footage and studio moments.

VIVE LA FÊTE Honors French Chansonnier CHRISTOPHE Who Passed Away Last Week

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

23 April 2020

Thanks to my musical mother I learned a lot about French singers who were genuine
stars and started their careers back in the sixties, like Johnny Halliday, Michel Polnareff, Jacques Dutronc and of course CHRISTOPHE who scored a series of top hits with ‘Les Marionettes‘ and ‘Aline‘ as his most famous ones.

A couple of months ago Belgian’s internationally recognized dance duo VIVE LA FÊTE worked together with the beloved French chansonnier to create a new version of LES MARIONETTES. Unfortunately, their dear, Italy born, friend passed away last week on
17 April at the age of 74. To honor Christophe with whom they had a strong bond the
band decided to release the tremendously fitting video clip they made for that classic humdinger. It’s a vintage Vive La Fête knockout and a whirling homage to a great artist.

Psych Rockers ELEPHANT STONE Launched Video Clip For ‘FOX ON THE RUN’

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

21 April 2020

Last February, on Valentine’s Day, Canadian psych-pop rockers ELEPHANT STONE, formed in 2008, led by renowned sitarist and singer/songwriter Rishi Dhir released their sixth LP, entitled HOLLOW. An intriguing and fascinating concept record with a mesmerizing and spiritual resonance despite the gloomy context of the record.

The band just shared a pretty cool clip for FOX ON THE RUN (no, not that The Sweet song) one of the highlights of the album. Rishi Dhir told what inspired this track: “During the writing of this track, I was listening to a lot of Yo La Tengo, specifically ‘And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out’, I loved the hypnotic element to their tunes. At the same time I kept hearing reports about ICE agents taking people away in the middle of the night—people who have been in America for years and worked hard…only to be now targeted by Trump and his cronies. The song was written from the perspective of someone who just wants to be somewhere safe and with their family.”

Watch/listen and get impressed…

THE CHILLS Share Previously Unreleased Promo Clip For Debut 7″ ‘ROLLING MOON’

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…


20 April 2020

New Zealand’s notorious indie act THE CHILLS led by the legendary singer/songwriter Martin Phillipps just shared a previously unreleased promo clip for their first 7″ ever called ‘ROLLING MOON’ that came out 38 years ago.

Phillipps introduced the video as follows: “Something special for all you Chills fans as legendary New Zealand cameraman/director Peter Janes has used lockdown time to edit together the long-lost ‘Rolling Moon’ footage into a clip. The result of the 1982 shoot at Pilots Bay, Dunedin were originally deemed largely too dark for use and then the film was lost for
over three decades and only recently discovered in time for a tiny piece of it to be included in the documentary ‘The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps’. But now we finally have a promo clip for our first 7″ single from 1982.”

‘REPETITION 97′ by the late great DAVID BOWIE is one of the nine previously unreleased
