Jamie-T

Annnd Jamie T is back.

Working again with Tom Beard (who directed ‘Tinfoil Boy’), the video for his new single, ‘Power Over Men’, explores the day-to-day life of a middle-aged dominatrix.

It’s quintessentially a Jamie T song, with its sharp, witty lyrics, and subtle reggae rhythms.

‘Power Over Men’ is taken from Jamie T’s forthcoming fourth album, ‘Trick’, out on 2 September.

The Maccabees – Marks To Prove It

The Maccabees

The Maccabees

Some would say all grown up. We would hope not.

Back with a bang after three silent years is The Maccabees!

The Maccabees is comprised of Orlando Weeks, Hugo White, Felix White, Rupert Jarvis and Sam Doyle.

Produced by Hugo, recorded with Laurie Latham at their own Elephant Studios and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, the new single, ‘Marks To Prove It’, is a frenetic burst of late 60’s psychedelia.

“These new songs are a reminder of why we started the band,” says Hugo. “With the enthusiasm to play music that’s exciting and makes us excited.”

The artwork for the single is by British artist Andy Goldsworthy.  “We’re thrilled to say that artwork for the singles from our new album will again feature the work of Andy Goldsworthy” say the band. “This is the first in the ’Midsummer Snowballs’ series – we hope you like it as much as we do.”

Watch the Joseph Connor-directed video below:

‘Marks to Prove It’ is out on 11 May via Fiction.

Circa Waves – Fossils

Circa Waves

Circa Waves

Circa Waves is a four-piece band from Liverpool, England. The band consists of Kieran Shudall, Sian Plummer, Sam Rourke and Joe Falconer.

They today release the video to their new single, ‘Fossils’.

The video, directed by LA based Adam Powell (Jamie TMichael Kiwanuka), was shot during the band’s recent European tour with The Libertines.

Describing the making of the video, Powell said: ” The boys and I bonded over a game of ping pong. The video was more of an ethos than anything particularly planned or thought out, we just wanted to get into Berlin and lose our minds. I slept in the bunk on the tour bus with the super 8mm camera, lost track of my shoes during our 48hour sleepless stay in Berlin and the whole thing was fucking amazing ”
