Thor Rixon‘s new single ‘Won’t Stop Crying’ is the third and final in a series of visuals featuring Thor, culminating in an EP at the end of the year. Sniff 🙁
It’s another big groover full of bounce and vibes, despite the turmoil Thor once again faces dealing with a break-up in today’s gross abundance of dating apps and social media.
Director, Rob Smith, gives his account of the filming experience,
“Thor is a natural performer. You put a camera on him and it’s hard to take it off. The main shoot itself was a tiny crew, consisting of myself, the “girl,” a DOP and two assistants. Thor and I later shot the iPhone footage all over Cape Town, pushing and pulling on those heart strings. Once Thor turned that tap on, there was no stopping him. He truly did not stop crying.”
Chinese/Australian multidisciplinary creative Dugong Jr shares the dreamy new single ‘Float’ featuring Rromarin. Inspired by the UK garage scene, the electronic producer creates a refreshing take on a classic sound.
Kid of the moment, Matt Maltese, is making waves with his soft take on 2020 indie. With a DIY aesthetic and scarily accurate prediction of current times, despite his continuous daydreaming, you can watch his cinematic video for ‘madhouse’ below.
Sounds like: Beach Boys, Oscar Lang, Glass Animals, Rex Orange County, The Last Shadow Puppets
Indie duo Hoofa considers the true cost of being a musician in 2020 in new single ‘How Do We Know’. A little more of a slow-burner than their usual ambi-pop take on indie, but this perfectly represents their abilities to consider aptly express real emotions.
Austin’s premiere psychedelic-rock connoisseurs The Bright Light Social Hour return with their cosmic, uniquely brilliant new single ‘Ouroboros’. It’s a transcendent journey through psychedelic, distorted guitar licks and spaced out vocal parts.
Burgeoning Aussie newcomer Moxley Rey returns with his triumphant sophomore single, a sun-soaked collaboration with Nashville-based alt-pop savant Jeff Carl. A kaleidoscopic cohesion of soothing indietronica, left-of-centre pop and euphoric EDM, it perfectly encapsulates boundless energy perfectly befitting any summer mood.
