The Music Video Roundup brings you a handful of the most memorable videos to hit the web. Included this week are new videos from Chvrches, Classroom Battles, Bastille, and MGMT.
Catch up on the previous Music Video Roundup here.
Chvrches are first band featured on this week’s roundup. “Lies”, the third single off their debut LP The Bones Of What You Believe, follows similar patterns as their previous released videos. The Sci-Fi inspired video, shifts between a story of a grim fantasy world and performance footage of the band looking badass while in a smokey room.
The ever so weird MGMT always manage to create the most bizarre and psychotropic videos. I may just die of shock the day the duo decides to release a video that is simple and straightforward. In typical MGMT fashion, “Alien Days” features a herd of goats, dancing Puritans, a woman giving birth to an orb, and a pair of freaky aliens. These guys really love to make it weird.
I had intended to post the video from Bastille‘s performance on the Boston Common, but felt it might be slightly narcissistic considering a few members of the RadioBDC crew were featured throughout. (#humblebrag). Instead I chose the simple video for their haunting cover of Cutting Crew’s 1986 classic hit, “Died In Your Arms”.
This is not Classroom Battles‘ first time being featured in the Music Video Roundup. This summer I said that the Irish/French group was a band people should be watching for and I really meant it. I’m really rooting for these guys after falling in love with their debut EP, This Week’s Question.
