[Watch] daysdeaf – Giving Life to Greys

1 Comment 07 April 2014

Music videos are becoming cool again! Whether its  Arcade Fire wearing animated paper-mache heads in “Reflektor” or Pharrell’s eternally cheerful “Happy”, acts are injecting some long-lost creativity back into this art form, achieving the desired result of furthering the senses from the song. The video for “Giving Life to Greys” has achieved that with a fraction of the budget. 

That’s the single by Toronto’s daysdeaf aka Manvir Rai from his upcoming release When Colour Lost Light. The electronica-infused song with steady beats, minimalist keys and Manvir’s spacey vocals is a calming listen. The accompanying video has bright colours mixing together in a giant space, that gently steers the mind to a fantastical place. Like music videos used to in the ol times!

[Watch] The Strumbellas – Sailing

No Comments 03 April 2014

by Nilabjo Banerjee

Are you saddened  by all this snow melting away and sunshine? (YEAH RIGHT!) Fear not you crazy one, The Strumbellas have the solution to bring back the misery of the horrid Canadian winter via music video for “Sailing”. The music video sees the six-piece brave the harshest of the conditions in their quest to find a buried vintage suitcase. I hope the recent Juno win for We Still Move on Dance Floors, their sophomore release, is keeping them warm.

While there is no official statement, hope no one suffered a frostbite in the making of this video.
