Rising Psychedelic Pop Artist Drew Makes Noise Shares ‘Satellite’ Video

UK born/Belfast-based musician DREW MAKES NOISE shares the DIY Supermarionation music video for ‘Satellite’.

Blending humour with cynicism, the video depicts an overworked office employee, stuck in a monotonous life and daydreaming about space adventures. Pairing imagination with escapism, alien overlords and references to interdimensional space spiders are sprinkled throughout the video. The scatterbrained fun melodies of pop and dance music manage to balance out the erratic aspects of the footage, providing a smooth and well-conceptualised production.

Revealing the intensity that went into creating the music video, Drew Makes Noise says: “This was full-on DIY. I disappeared for 4 full months to build a model world for characters and space ships to live in. The bearded character was loosely meant to be me but as time went on I felt like he actually “was” me and I, him and that I was living in a movie within a movie. I was going through my own hero’s journey to do something I have never done before. The scene with the live-action sawing and working in the shed was like method acting, as that’s what my life was like making the video. Life was imitating art and I lost my mind a little. After each scene was filmed I actually did some minor grieving as each time I thought a little person or thing I had created had died and left me. Now I know why actors and directors go crazy!”

Song of the Day: Way Off Wave – Blinker The Star

Following the release of album, ‘Careful With Your Magic’, released last fall, BLINKER THE STAR presents his latest single, ‘Way Off Wave’ on the blog’s today top spot.

Speaking of his trance – like release Blinker says: “The song touches on the things we do and think to ourselves after a period of great change: our impulse to seek out new external realities, while internally returning to stuck patterns and thoughts which inhibit growth and acceptance. It is almost a dreamlike state we find ourselves in trying to move forward while mentally sloshing about in the past, looking for new answers that will never appear. It was recorded completely alone in the middle of a corn field in the dead of winter.”

After a short string of shows last fall, the Canadian rocker  began working on new music at Skylark Park Studio outside of Pembroke, Ontario. The solitude proved delicious as a new album, ‘Juvenile Universe’ will be ready by early summer, marking the fastest turnaround between albums for the largely one person studio act.

Becky Bowe Share Video For Single ‘Don’t Darken My Door’

UK singer-songwriter BECKY BOWE has shared the colourful music video for ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ via Two Bridge Recordings.

Opening with bright shades of blue and silver, the music video for ‘Don’t Darken My Door’ provides a stark contrast to the sombre lyrics. Featuring the organic guitar chords and Becky’s warm, controlled vocals segueing into the mix laden with emotion and soul, the music video maintains a perfect balance between heartbreak and conviction.

Speaking of the music video, Becky Bowe says: “My idea for the video was to have the balloons representing thoughts and feelings about this said relationship and for me to release them by cutting them loose, letting them go and popping them so by the end I become free from the cloud over my head. I wanted to keep in with the light blue theme as I think it really compliments the chilled vibe of the song. The video would have never been what it was without the help of Declan Creffield who was the director, Milly Hewitt as set designer and Dana Cole for make up.”

Song of the Day: Freaks! – 7VN

Drawing influence from artists such as Schoolboy Q, Fredo Santana and Kendrick Lamar, Toronto based hip-hop artist 7VN’s latest single ‘Freaks!’, is an ambitious and frank hip-hop number, with introspective and insightful bars, delivered in a deadpan flow.

The track’s thought-provoking music video, features Canada’s most modified man. Speaking more on this, 7VN explained:

“The music video is essentially a split between two worlds, one where I’m preforming in this cool studio set up, and the model in the video is all done up. At home, the reality is that I’m living with a devil on my shoulder feeding me drugs of all sorts and the model is my pregnant girlfriend yelling at me.

At the end of the video I get a knock on the door and it’s a suitcase with the words “record deal” written on it. We’re all excited but inside it is a noose. In a very underlying sense, it shows that all that glitters isn’t gold and all while I’m at the studio with this big rapper performance, behind the scenes the truth isn’t as glamorous.”

7VN is no stranger to the game. Since bursting onto the scene back in 2018, 7VN has already established himself alongside the best in the industry such as Frank Dukes, Murda Beatz and Tay Keith’s producer Banbwoi.
