'LMK' is a battle cry and the video, directed by longtime Björk collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang, is a surreal visual that sees Kelela moving through hazy, club-like environments with authority and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Reflecting on the video, Huang says, "We wanted make a video that showcases the multiplicity of who Kelela is and who she has the potential to be. The video is essentially a grand unveiling featuring Kelela wearing different wigs and guises as she pushes through the club with her friends, ultimately revealing herself at the end of the video. The message of this video is empowerment: it's for the girls, for anyone whose heart has been trampled on and deserves to go out and feel good about themselves. It's a call to action, demanding to be taken and to be quick about it. This is the reason why we love Kelela - she's making herself vulnerable and kicking down doors in the process."

A Taller Us, Foxtrott's debut album (released on Bjork's record label, One little Indian) is a musical interpretation of life's monolithic challenges. Alongside director and ongoingcollaborator Kevin Calero, the Montreal based singer/producer elaborated on that metaphor for Foxtrott's "Shaky Hands" video. The result is a vertical climb through various stages of inner turmoil. Set in a quarry 4 hours south of Montreal, Canada, the video further develops the visual language initially explored in the video for previous single Driven. Choreographer Wynn Holmes rejoins the team to aid in highlighting the songs musical structure through movement. The result is a disorientingly classic tale of "survival of the fittest".

Dawn Shadforth does it again! Creating another standout performance from the Hurts lads."From drunken parties, to forlorn, exhausted glimpses, there’s more than just a hint of sad glamour to their new video, which seems to accompany the rise and fall of the track magnificently. There’s even a questioning journalist, yelling, “Who are the real Hurts?’ as they pass by, proving that even the video’s protagonists aren’t too sure of the answer." DIYMag

From Irrum: "Kari told me she thought it was interesting if we represented the themes of the song, a choice, a gamble, giving up on something - with something simple and relatable, we decided on a game. The video puts us in a graphical game scenario, the format has some similarities to that of a classic TV game show, but we left the rules and context surrounding it pretty undefined."

It felt ironic to have left the Montréal winter to shoot snow-covered sequoias and cacti in California.”

Whilst the shoot was pretty brutal and unforgiving - particularly for our hero - we captured something really special, no more so than the moments in the final third of the video where our hero finally becomes one with the horse."

Mister Whitmore has created 5 teaser trailers for the return of Duck Sauce!
From Mister Whitmore
When the project came in it was extremely open ended, all that mattered was that we use duck character's to announce that Quack Is Back. So we spent a lot of time writing with DS's team, going back and forth on characters, their stories, and which tracks fit which duck, and by the end of it all, we chose to produce the concepts that made us giggle like a group of school girls. My favorite is the weight lifter duck, so feel free to analyze what that says about me.
