Newest Love: Morning Harvey

unnamed (1)

Check out this new video from Australian band, Morning Harvey.

Filmed in the Noosa Hinterland in regional Queensland and directed by Nic Mckenzie from Deep Sea Arcade, the clip features cameo’s from some of fellow Brisbane bands, including The Belligerents, The Furrs and The Jungle Giants.

When filming the band had to learn how to play and sing backwards, the clip was then reversed and pace manipulated to give the slowed down, psyched out effect. A mesmerising clip to match the blissed out jams, laced with euphoric girls and surrounded in lush Australian bushland.

“Girl Euphoria (Come Back To Me)” has been making waves at Australian alt radio and is the follow up single to the 2013 Well for Wishes EP.

Newest Love: The Amplifetes

The Amplifetes are a brand new 4-piece band from Sweden. Being accomplished songwriters and producers on their own, the members have worked with names such as Kelis, Madonna, Grandmaster Flash and Peter Bjorn and John. While having occasionally crossed paths during the course of their careers, they have existed as a unit for about a year. The band think of themselves as a dreamteam collaboration of their influences – listing 60s Psychadelia, The Electric Light Orchestra, The Ramones, Elvis Costello, David Bowie and Chicago Trax Records House releases.     
 
The highly addictive result can be heard in The Amplifetes debut single “It´s My Life“, a spitting image of urban life and a happy three-part marriage between garage pop, electro and punk. It was featured recently in a promo campaign for Italian fashion house Roberto Cavalli, starring a lightly dressed Milla Jovovich, creating quite a stir over Europe. 
Watch the video for their second single, “Whizz Kid”  HERE and fall in love like I have!
