Kansas quartet Faintheart, a regular fixture on our charts and on our monthly Amazing Radio show, have released the official video for their new single “Us.” It’s a refreshingly unabashed guitar rock track, with a non-linear video clips that emphasizes the song’s atmospherics, recalling early Death Cab For Cutie and Stars.
UK duo KAZE are back after a short hiatus with a live in-studio performance of their new one, “Keep Me Loving You.” It’s a bit of a different flavor from the band, but of the same high end songcraft that has made them an OurStage favorite over the last couple of years. This one is a beautiful ballad sung by Amy Webber, accompanied by Graham McCusker on the grand piano. Looking forward to whatever path this pair follow in the coming months.
Singer and songwriter Tim Halperin has a fun new video for his track “Tell Me What You Need.” The song is a standout production from his EP Chances and features a unique groove that morphs in and out of a thumping hook. Watch the video (directed by Sean Deveraux) below.
Fast-rising UK singer Erin Bloomer, whom we first came across last year when her song “Right Love, Wrong Time” hit our Top 10, has just released a new single and video, “Lately.” It’s a bigger production than that previous single, more ambitiously layered and R&B flavored, and arranged with subtle complexity. The accompanying video is a fun, early ’90s-evoking technicolored spectacle.
We love Pretty Boi Finagle‘s unique tenor flow, which goes almost non-stop through his latest single “Wow.” This fantastic production, both track and video, speaks for itself, so what else can we say, except to trainspot a well-placed Talladega Nights reference. Check it out:
We’ve got a new video from Yonas, a beautiful clip for the track “Travel The World,” featuring his young daughter Riley, to whom the song is addressed. As Yonas tells us, he took much of the last year off to spend time with his family, and it feels appropriate that this song, brimming with aspirational joy, should be returning statement.
