Fiddlehead have shared a music video for the loud and big new single “Sullenboy”, an emotional piece which mixes the group’s post-hardcore intensity with catchy hooks and memorable melodies.

The song arrives as a first taster of their new album Death Is Nothing To Us, set for release on August 18. The record will complete the thematic trilogy that began with their previous two releases, Springtime and Blind and Between The Richness.

[video] Treeboy & Arc – Behind The Curtain

Things are bleak in general all factors considered and who knows if they will ever get better. It feels like Leeds’ Treeboy & Arc understand this sentiment very well and drop on us their darkest-sounding track to date, a brooding and nervy “Behind The Curtain” (it follows the earlier released “Retirement” and “False Objects” from the upcoming LP Natural Habitat).

For the gloomy song about the inevitability of death that we all will face at some point, it also carries some odd sense of calmness and the feeling of acceptance. This fact does not make it any less sinister though, with the group spicing up their post-punk sensibilities to the maximum extent.

Hot off the heels of their debut EP pure misery released last November, Glasgow’s avant-rock masterminds Humour deliver one more time with “The Halfwit”, their brand new song out today via tastemaker label So Young Records.

Clocking in at just nearly 3 minutes, it is a fast-paced and frenzied track that draws from a variety of genres, including punk, garage rock, and post-punk. It is paired with the cool and slightly claustrophobic music video made by Robin Herbert, which sees the band performing live inside the cave.

[video] Skydaddy – That Morning

Earlier this month London-based musician Rachid Fakhre aka Skydaddy released his debut single “That Morning” and now he is sharing the beautiful accompanying music video, shot between South London and his parent’s native Lebanon.

Directed by Billy Gadd, it is an emotional and cinematic piece that works perfectly with the euphoric and ambitious song, which sees him integrating cello, violin, flute, piano and complex vocal harmonies.

Speaking on the video, he says: “The video mostly takes place in a delusion of grandeur in which I am a cult leader. At one point I lose it and run to the ocean and swim to Lebanon where I come out of the sea and begin a journey of self-discovery”.

Manchester trio YAANG shares an energetic and punchy new single “Too Much Money”, on which they bridge the elements of post-punk, indie rock and dance punk by creating a vibrant mix together with a distinctive personality and relatable lyrics.

Produced by Formal Sppeedwear’s Beck Clewlow, the song bites back at all the frustrating little disappointments that aggravate day-to-day life, as Oliver Duffy (guitars/vocals) explains: “Written while on a run, the lyrics are about being disillusioned with mundane and minor inconveniences dictating life (got a bad haircut, wifi bill too much, fined for driving in bus lane, sleeping in) feeling like you’ve “paid too much money” for a life that’s being controlled by little hiccups outside of your immediate control”.

The track is paired with the fun music video, directed by Harry Green, on which the group’s sampler is going on a full-on travel mode through various cities, meeting different characters along the way.
