[video] MYNK – Boundaries

London trio MYNK make an impressive entrance with their debut single “Boundaries”, which was produced by Faris Badwan (The Horrors, Cat’s Eyes).

The group masterfully fuses pop sensibilities with fragile and gothy vocals, coldwave grooves and minimal guitars. The single goes together with the music video, directed and edited by Lewis Clark and Bex Morrison, which brilliantly complements it.

[video] Humour – jeans

Today sees the release of pure misery, a debut EP by Glaswegian five-piece band Humour. It is out via So Young Records.

With 6 tracks, clocking in at 20 minutes, it is an unstoppable collection of hard-hitting numbers, shaping between contemporary post-punk and loud, chaotic noise rock. An ideal mini-album to get immersed in and reflect on another tough year, with not much brightness ahead of us.

The latest single from it, “jeans”, got a powerful and striking music video, created by Luke Ainger, Fred Qvortrup and Cat Williams.

The group shared the following about the song: “Jeans is about a character who is internally trying to build himself up and convince himself that he’s a successful and confident no-nonsense man. But he periodically has lapses in this forced self-assuredness and realises that he is not any of those things and is in fact quite a sad, pathetic and laughable character. Much like myself”.

Living Hour released their excellent third LP Someday Is Today earlier this year via Next Door Records / Kanine Records, and now they are sharing a new video for the album’s highlight, “Hold Me In Your Mind”.

It is an atmospheric, wintery and aesthetically beautiful piece, directed and edited by Ryan Steel.
