Portland native duo When We Met released their psychedelic new music video for their latest single “Ride the Tide” off the recently released album “Where Did They Come From.” Check out the video here:
The video was created by cartoonist Magnificent Kaaboom, who brought to life the song’s ocean-themed lyrics with visuals that showcase a unique art style complete with retro animation. Right from the get-go, the video literally grabs you in as a hand pops out from a book and drags the viewer into a wacky world full of surfing cavemen and globetrotting aliens. The duo is backed on this occasion by a robot drummer, which somehow brings it all together. If you’re looking for a dream world to escape to with a new wave, indie rock soundtrack, look no further than When We Met’s latest video “Ride the Tide.”
French surf-noir band La Femme released a zany new music video for “Exorciseur” from their 2016 full-length, “Mystère.” Check out the video below:
The video was directed by La Femme and features the band on the road complete with costumes, razor blades, and trippy filters that match the funky bassline and haunting synths. La Femme released their new album “Mystère” worldwide which, continued to leave a huge mark on modern Paris’s cultural landscape, with the two sides of the city – the glamour and the grit – engrained in their music. Returning to a more psychedelic sound and a range of guest vocalists that slice through the starkest of electro beats, “Mystère” sees the French pop connoisseurs celebrating all that’s wonderful about their city.
“Mystère” reached the second place in the French digital charts, 8th place in the overall French charts, and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the French Music Awards 2017. Ever since the release of their debut album “Psycho Tropical Berlin,” that topped the French digital charts and saw the band appear on national television as the Best New Band of the year at the French Music Awards, La Femme’s rise has only gained momentum with fans.
Seattle indie/alternative band G O L D N W O L F has released their first music video for the single “Lone Wolf.” Check out the video below:
The band’s creation was inspired by different aspects of life and sound with each song bringing an emotionally anthemic vibe. “Lone Wolf” was mixed by Jean-Marie Horvat (Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, The Weeknd) and mastered by Dave Kutch (Bruno Mars, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis). The single illustrates the essence of the band by breaking the mold and going against the grain of what mainstream society while living in the moment and being present.

The band was formed in 2016, when Austin Robert (formally of Girl on Fire), Nicholas Wiggins (formally of Aiden) and Jake Jones (formally of New Years Day) wanted to start a fresh outfit that could bring life to a new generation of music. By removing all limitations, they decided early on to break the mold and create a completely unique sound that does not fit into one of many boxes of genres.
Indie-rock phenomena WYO released an awe-inspiring music video for the song “Down by the River” off his album “Untamed” coming out on Oct. 20. Check out the video here:
WYO is a rock band originating from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The video was shot in the band’s hometown and features the epic mountainsides and landscapes that inspired the forthcoming record, “Untamed.” The full-length album is a search for a place that’s alive and wild. It’s a record that deals with love, loss, and constant exploration. It’s a tale of reconciling city life with the Wild West of Wyoming.
What separates WYO from the rest is singer-songwriter, Andy Sorge’s unique, creative vision. After attending film school in New York, Andy met multi-instrumentalist, Scott McKay Gibson, and the two began composing music for documentaries, commercials, and short films together in Wyoming. Perhaps this explains the reason that WYO’s music has a way of evoking such striking visuals that stir the imagination, as they utilize an organic instrument palette to create the soundscape that is WYO.
YOURFRENDS have recently their first official video for their song “Chicago Kid” from their upcoming project titled “Just Mondays.” Check out the song below:
Directed by K Shack, the video shows off the YOURFREDS members in the city streets bringing to light the hardships that everyday Chicago kids must face growing up. The violence in the urban landscape is an uneasy and dangerous place and the song shows of the group’s ability to raise awareness important issues about their roots. Just as there’s no “I” in team, there’s no “I” in YOURFRENDS, and the group is working together to create art as a holistic team.
