Day Wave has shared a new music video for his track “Drag,” a particularly contagious cut off his excellent debut EP, Headcase.

The camcorder-shot clip follows one-man-band Jackson Phillips as he wanders around the Bay Area, traversing mountainsides and tiptoeing down train tracks. Check it out after the break, and let us know if you’re a fan in the comments section.

Phillips will spend the latter half of September on the road, tearing up the West Coast alongside Blonde Redhead. A full itinerary can additionally be found below.…

Watch Leon Bridges Perform “Coming Home” Acoustic

2015 is the year of Leon Bridges. In a time where everyone is fighting over social media about whether or not they get the opportunities or co-signs they deserve, Bridges is focused solely on resurrecting a long lost sound that is desperately needed in today’s music climate. We have been following his rise since the fall of 2014, and with the release of Coming Home in June he took yet another step towards being the international sensation we know he will eventually become.

Recently, Bridges made a trip to New York to create a unique acoustic visual for his …

Wet Go Roller Skating In New Video For “You’re The Best”

Wet have yet to truly blow up but they’re well on their way. Hopefully their upcoming debut full-length will get them all the attention they deserve.

In 2013, the New York pop/R&B trio released one of my favorite EPs of the year, or last several years really. They also released a video for one of the EP’s singles, titled “You’re The Best.” However, as the track will also be featured on their new album, Don’t You, it’s been given a visual makeover with a brand new video that takes place at a roller skating rink. Vocalist Kelly Zutrau tells …

Fashioncore Is Alive & Well: Atreyu Share “Long Live” Video

Remember the glory days of new millennium post-hardcore? I’m talking about the period between 2004 and 2008 when Victory Records pretty much set the bar for quality in every variation of ‘heavy’ alternative music. There were so many great bands then, and only a select few remain today, with Silverstein arguably being the most successful of the bunch. I love them and always will, but if I had to choose the band that defined this period, at least for me, it would have to be the almighty Atreyu.

Blending elements of emo, hardcore, punk and metal to create something …

UTG PREMIERE: Valora – “React” (Music Video)

Today, UTG has teamed up with Los Angeles based electro-rock act Valora to premiere the brand new music video for their single, “React,” featuring Mot & Krid.

The visuals for “React,” directed by Justin Floyd, encourage you to take charge of your life–to take a stand or to speak up and fight back, in any situation, including be bullied, manipulated and/or discouraged in any way.

As to the message and meaning behind the track itself, vocalist Syd Duran shares: “‘React’ is the anthem of dreamers like me. Those who have big goals and bigger hearts are bound to feel more …

beyond creation

Beyond Creation Release Live Performance Video For “Fundamental Process”

Hands down, Beyond Creation‘s Earthborn Evolution was one of the best metal albums of 2014, and maybe of the last decade honestly. It contains some of the most innovative songwriting I’ve heard from the genre in some time, and you can’t be mad at the sweet groove from that fretless bass.

Today, the band has released a live video for the album’s lengthy closing track, “Fundamental Process.” The video was shot in New York by Magnetar Studio while the band was on their recent East Coast run. It’s essentially your typical performance video but it looks damn good and …

Real Friends’ New Music Video For “Sixteen” Will Make You Very Sad

Illinois sad boys Real Friends have just put out a heartbreaking new music video for their song, “Sixteen.”

Taken from their most recent album Maybe This Place Is The Same And We’re Just Changing, and under the direction of Max Moore, the video features a young boy’s lonely sixteenth birthday party at a bowling alley.

“This song is one of our favorites from the album,” bassist Kyle Fasel tells Billboard. “Max Moore, who directed the video, was really able to capture the song’s emotion with this music video. And it’s filmed in a bowling alley so that’s pretty …

It’s Time You Fell In Love With Young Punk Heroes Choke Up

Pop punk has dominated the alternative scene for the better part of the last half decade. So much so, in fact, that many seem to have forgotten there are variations of punk that don’t involve constant references to friendship, pizza, and getting over that girl who broke your heart in junior high. If that applies to you, maybe you should feel bad. I’m not here to ruin your day, but there are a number of great punk artists fighting to survive out there, and you’re only doing yourself a disservice by not taking time to discover their immense talent.

Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie Share New Music Video For “The Ghosts Of Beverly Drive”

Death Cab For Cutie have joined forces with Rolling Stone to premiere a brand new music video for “The Ghosts Of Beverly Drive,” a standout cut off their latest album, Kintsugi.

The clip follows the Bellingham trio as they give a guided tour of L.A., and serves as a somewhat depressing metaphor for celebrity culture, a theme which is found littered throughout their eighth full-length effort.

“For every great thing about the city and the experience of living there, there is an offsetting negative that, for me, makes my feeling about L.A. a net zero in terms of personal …
