Meadowlark – Headlights

Meadowlark

Meadowlark

We’ve been long term fans of Meadowlark and it’s been a privilege to watch them grow from strength to strength over the last couple of years.

The Bristol duo have unveiled the official video for their new single ‘Headlights’.

Directed by the band’s, Dan Broadley, the video was filmed in one take. Dan explains,

“The expressive dancing explores many of the complex emotions that fuel a relationship, the passion, the rage, the bubble that encapsulates both bodies. Meanwhile Kate and myself weave in and out of this energetic routine, narrating the story from the lyrics whilst remaining invisible to the characters.”

Signed to Believe Recordings (James Vincent McMorrow, Gavin James), Meadowlark have a debut album on the horizon for 2017.

Meadowlark – Paraffin

Meadowlark by Giles Smith

Meadowlark by Giles Smith

Meadowlark (aka Kate McGill and Daniel Broadley) return with the brilliant new single called ‘Paraffin’.

We wrote about the duo some time ago, but since then their sound appears to have evolved; gradually building the tracks from simple melodies into dense sonic structures was an experimental process through which Meadowlark have firmly found their creative voice.

Directed by James Beale (All We Are, Phantogram, Jon Hopkins), the video is a dream-like take on a relationship that is skewed both visually and narratively.

Speaking about the concept behind the film, the band explain: “We’ve previously directed all our own music videos and this was the first time we had ever worked with someone else on one of our songs. It was amazing to not only collaborate with a new mind but to also be able to watch the video with fresh eyes for the first time, to enjoy it as someone else would. ‘Paraffin’ is ultimately a song about the ups and downs of a relationship and James has managed to show that intimately and openly between the two characters.”

‘Paraffin’ is the title track from Meadowlark’s forthcoming EP which is set for release on 22nd April via Believe Recordings. The new record is the follow up to Meadowlark’s 2015 released ‘Dual’ EP which was produced by Ant West of Oh Wonder.

Fyfe – Holding On

Fyfe

Fyfe

We previously described the 25-year old UK solo artist, Fyfe (aka Paul Dixon), as being comparable to Miike Snow with a hint of James Blake, which is why we are pleased to hear that he has released a moody video for new tune ‘Holding On’ as well as announcing the release of his long-awaited debut album, ‘Control’.

Still slightly following the recognisable disconsolate theme, ‘Holding On’ is more about a journey of self-discovery for the producer than any of his former tracks.
