Overcoming meningitis and, as a result, epilepsy, would for many signal an end rather than a beginning, but this is far from the case with Swedish auteur, Steele. Confirming her belief in her entrancingly shadowy music and lyrics, she writes music which makes no concession to fashion or fleeting trends. She may have been forced to embrace an entirely un-rockstar lifestyle of no alcohol, but her visceral edge is keener than ever.
Having already enjoyed his 15 minutes of Warhol-allotted fame when his performance of Adele’s “Hello” got zillions of views on YouTube Tryzdin might have expected that was that. Rather than fading into obscurity, Saint Mars head-honcho, Marc Darcange, approached him to work alongside his band, the results of which are below. Drawing on Tryzdin’s own experiences from bullying, the video is a cool yet highly effective look at how bullying affects individuals and their relationships.
London-based father and son duo, Donegan, release the video to Candles from their forthcoming album, First XI today. With a far more hard-hitting sound than their debut single, Reminisce, it is the carefully crafted kind of track that music fans are starting to come to expect from the band. Their album is due at the end of March.
Never one to do things by halves, indie singer-songwriter Nele Needs a Holiday appears not once but twice at this year’s Latitude Festival, this year’s must-attend festival in the absence of Glastonbury. Taking her hit musical from the Hammersmith Lyric Theatre, How To Fail at Being Perfect to a mass audience, she is also previewing her latest musical, modestly self-titled and about her own “wayward” love-life! Perfect timing then for this, her brilliant video to We’ll See, which debuted today!
After a media campaign which has seen thousands share his viral videos, Hunter (The Voice) finally officially releases his debut single, “So Gay” on, of course, Valentine’s Day. Now with a radical EDM remix, the song is no less gloriously uplifting and a perfect antidote to generic fluffy animal greetings cards. How better to come out to your beloved than playing this for them? Good luck!
Usually, we’re not hugely impressed by lyric videos. Yes, they can be interesting when you’d struggle to make out what the words are any other way, but if you’re not careful, they can actually be distracting more than anything. One of the best exceptions to the rule we’ve seen for some time comes from shadowy UK producer, Luuk Lagrange – super-slick and a brilliant link to the invisible theme of the track, it’s the kind of intelligent dance music which Britain is really taking the lead on globally.
Ridiculously catchy brainy-pop from singer-songwriter Bryony Dunn, Golden Girl is a never-more-poignant nod at the bizarre world of what celebrity (whatever that now means).
To support the release, Bryony is appealing to music fans Uk-wide to nominate their local red telephone box, as she looks to embark on the smallest UK tour of all-time! Get in touch via her social media links at the bottom of the page!

Utterly intoxicating stuff from Ms Mohammed, the founder of Clit Rock and champion of human rights, has released the video to Alibi…just in time for Halloween.
In actual fact, despite looking like a video directed by the Ramsay Brothers, it’s a salient commentary challenging the labels given to minorities, with the aim, ultimately, being that we exist simply as people. Incredibly cinematic, we look forward to more vampish politics very soon.
We’ve been trying all morning but we still can’t get the moves right to Olisha’s new single, “Strangers”. Let us know if you have any success!
Ever willing to challenge the norm, Johann Sebastian Punk, our favourite Italian pop star EVER, has released the first music video ever made which features phonetic subtitles. As ever, the fact no-one has ever called for this makes it all the more joyous and marvellous. Dig in!
