Video: Pacific Air – Float

Having ‘grown-up’ through some of the slickest music blogs (CitR included… arrogance unintended), KO KO, now known as Pacific Air, are rapidly gathering a decent sized fanbase. New single Float, taken from the Long Live KoKo EP, comes with a video that’s fitting to their sound; vibrant, sensual and colourful… there’s also plenty of scantily-clad attractive […]

New: Monolithix – Gold To Rust

As with a vast majority of debut tracks, the production on this effort from Brooklyn’s Monolithix aka Rob Ingersoll is rather understated, and perhaps slightly weak at times, most notably on the vocals, yet the underlying songwriting qualities are there for all to see. Gold To Rust, a new-wave pop number, has a hook that […]

New: The Death of Pop – Laugh Now I’m Weak

It feels like barely any time at all since we first discovered The Death of Pop, however they’ve  been very industrious since and had made four very promising and varied tracks available for all to hear, and seemingly for plenty of other blogs to lavish praise over. However today The Death of Pop have made […]

Man vs. Video: Charli XCX – You (Ha Ha Ha)

A new bit looking at the often overlooked world of music videos, written by a self-styled asshole with a Lit degree.  – ed.. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtrHH1BDlzk Charli XCX has courted a reasonable bit of controversy concerning the video for her Gold Panda-sampling song ‘You (Ha Ha Ha)’, notably over her supposed glorification of firearms.
