As anticipation builds for I:Scintilla’s upcoming album Swayed, the band has released a second single ‘Boxing Glove’ on all streaming services. On the new single, vocalist Brittany Bindrim’s seductively catchy melodies pour over slinky, hard-hitting grooves penned by bassist Dean Dunakin. With the song’s release comes an official lyric video created by Bindrim. The ‘Boxing Glove’ video features hand-drawn animated lyrics coming to life and hitting screen, the words landing heavy with the weight of power dynamics and introspection.
I:Scintilla’s long-awaited album Swayed, to be released September 21, 2018, is now available for pre-order now through Alfa Matrix via Bandcamp. The new album, recorded and produced by Greg Panciera (Sylvia Massy, Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails, Dave Bianco), marks the first new music from I:Scintilla in four years and their first full length album since 2010.

Referencing the sentiment of wilful blinkeredness when the world around you is going to hell expressed in Paul Misraki’s 1935 song from which it takes its title, Jeremi Durand’s latest music video "Madame la Marquise" for French rapper Keny Arkana calls out modern society’s indifference to the destructive path we’re on.

Arctic Monkeys have released the music video for ‘Four Out Of Five’, and it’s an eerie offering that effortlessly summons the spirit of Stanley Kubrick.
In the video for the The ‘Tranquility Base Hotel And Casino’ track, frontman Alex Turner appears to lose his grip with reality as he walks through a series of locations.
Bright red flashes are seen as he roams the corridors of a stately home, evoking the twisted horror of Kubrick’s cult thriller The Shining.

This video is an exploration of self isolation. It represents a loneliness and depression that can only come from alienating oneself. This depression can be a sinking whole that’s hard to surface from; but it can also be a semblance of peace in an otherwise chaotic world.

For those of you living under a rock, Childish Gambino dropped a video for his brand-new song “This is America” last night. Directed by Atlanta regular Hiro Murai, the politically-charged video focuses on Glover dancing in a chaotic warehouse. It's chock full of violence, deeper meaning and hidden references.
The 7th act on an album dedicated to the circle of life - "Demise", from "Riverine" by Imploding Stars. An exploration on being left and leaving behind, through a relationship that struggles to hold itself together through communication issues, eventually meeting a point of no return, spiraling the main character down the path further away from her life.
