VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Mozart’s Sister – ‘Mozart’s Sister’
When we spoke to Montreal pop singer Mozart’s Sister earlier this year, she described her music with the hashtag #pinkdepression. Now, the self-titled lead track from her Hello EP receives a rosy video of it’s own, showing all the weird shit that we do when home alone – interpretive dancing, amateur operatics and tree climbing. Grimes recently described her as one of her biggest inspirations, and you’d do worse than to follow her lead.
SONG OF THE WEEK: Karl X Johan – ‘Never Leave Me’
Clean as a fresh blade of grass, Swedish duo Karl X Johan’s dewy new one is synthpop at its most reliable. Released on the always-excellent Swedish label EMOTION, it captures the glorious heart-bursting optimism that most pop only manages in the middle-8. Wonderful.
A/V EXPERIENCE OF THE WEEK: Jacques Greene - ‘On Your Side (Feat. How To Dress Well)’
They just keep cropping up don’t they? In last week’s music news, we wrote about Micro Panda Shall Burst’s grainy CGI world, and this week Jacques Greene premieres a Tetris-like interactive video to launch his new EP On Your Side, released today on LuckyMe. With shots of glittery waterfalls, clenched fists and interlocking fingers, it’s a playful experience to mirror the glistening beat.
