Awesome Canadian experimental Pop outfit Vogue Dots do like a good song with ‘way’ in the title, eh? Following on from their shockingly good single for Cascine’s CSCN single imprint, Way Out they are continuing along their…way…with this luscious new release, Way With Silence. It’s a gloriously rich and emotive slice of smokey SynthPop. There’s a video for the track too! Check it out here for the first time (premiére stylee) below.
Jon Eisener steps up for directing duties on this clip; a clam and still video that really should be boring, but somehow draws you in with a restrained beauty that seems to curl around the song like the smoke it is very very full of.

Little Boots’ No Pressure is one of the more Houseified tracks on just release Working Girl album (read the review here). With an infectious Warehouse groove the tune just makes you move; and now it can make you look too with this freshly released new video.
The clips shrugs off the pressure of working life as Boots basically gives a bunch of office denizens the shut-up-and-dance memo.

ElectroPop side-project of singer/songwriter Cat Martino, Stranger Cat’s Sirens actually dropped last year originally, being taken from the album In The Wilderness. But now it’s lush, post-Chillwave, has got itself a shiny new video. Direct your eyes and ears this way.
The clip, which was co-directed by Martino and Andre Costantini, neatly captures the nervous energy of the insomnia which inspired the track.
Stranger Cat’s In The Wilderness is out now.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Sweedish ElectroPunks Alice In Videoland are back, when it totally seemed like they wouldn’t be. As exuberant as ever, the new single, Let Go, is classic AiV. Big synths, big riffs and Toril’s vocals on fine form.
Check out the slick video. Put together by Andreas Johansson & Anders Printz the clip looks surprisingly big budget for a DIY band like Alice In Videoland.

London’s DiscoPop powerhouse production duo JBAG’s storming new single Everybody (Come On) is out now. The track features an enchanting mantra of a vocal performance from Chibi of Belgian ElectroPop outfit Shindu as Jerry and Andrea lay down some seriously thick beats and funk fuelled vintage House. The bass alone is enough to shake you to the dancefloor.
Check out the brand new video, which we’re premièring right here, A simplistic affair proving you don’t need a budget or to be a great artist to make a video as it flashes in time to the JBAG’s monster tune and features a cast of superstars.

Coming from her new album, Hairless Toys, Evil Eyes is the new single from Avant-DiscoPop siren Róisín Murphy. Accompanying the single is this suitably left-field video for the track.
Murphy appears both in front of, and behind, the camera in this clip, a darkly humorous descent into suburban madness.
