Wow, is it getting hot in here with the video for ‘Sex Tongue’ by 8th Grader (aka Jay Martinovich). But hold your horses a minute, as the video is purely tongue and cheek as 8th Grader explains below:
“This song/video is a narrative as well as a critique on idealized sexuality in the media. I wanted to show a juxtaposition of clichéd sexual norms alongside queer culture in San Francisco and America. I also just wanted to write a fun song to dance to in the style of Prince and the Tom Tom Club.”
Watch the video below.

Sassy singer, producer and film score writer, Meanwhile has been working hard of late. His music packs a punch on grand scales. It is hard to believe he is from a small village off the M3 in the UK.
Only his second track to date, ‘Bigger City’ showcases industrial funk reminiscent of Prince with punchy 80’s synth pop.
