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.
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.
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.
