Video : Marika Hackman : “Drown”

February 16th will see the release of Marika Hackman’s debut album, We Slept At Last, through Dirty Hit. Today, she has unveiled the dark video for lead single “Drown”. The video, found below, came with the following note from Hackman:

The song itself deals with the idea of suffocating on the power of human emotion and finding it painful yet strangely euphoric in a masochistic way. With my music not a lot of people pick up the underlying violence within the lyrics so I wanted to create a video that would indulge in the dark but beautiful intensity of these words. Working with the directors, Brian and Karl, we drew inspiration from the works of American video artist Bill Viola and the way he contrasts human subjects with the black voids he places them in, to create an erie beauty and serenity which simultaneously belies the violence of what is actually happening.

Oh to drown in your mind I would, I know I would. To suffocate in your smoke I’d choke on you if I could. Maybe I will.

For a country a fifth the size of the States, England has talent coming out of every corner musically. The latest export is 19-year-old songbird Flo Morrissey hailing from London. She recently signed with Glassnote and will be releasing her debut in the very near future. Not wanting to make you wait, we have the first song from it titled “Pages of Gold” full of shimmering late ‘60 California melodies and production from Noah Georgeson, who has worked with artists of similar qualities such as Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsome, and Little Joy, to name a few. It is an absolute stunner from a voice far more mature than her age would indicate and an artist you will absolutely hear more of in the coming months. Stream below.

Song : Daughter : “Winter” (Warpaint Remix)

Through mutual admiration for one another’s work, Daughter and Warpaint have hooked up to remix each other’s favorite songs of the other to be released digitally. To start things off, Warpaint selected to rework “Winter” from Daughter’s fantastic 2013 debut If You Leave. Their version maintains the ethereal vocals, but underscores them with glitch club beats. Daughter’s remix of Warpaint will be unveiled next week on December 2nd. You Stream below.

Song : Hannah Diamond : “Every Night”

Nothing has been more polarizing in music this year than the music coming out of the PC Music camp, which usually is a sign of good quality on the cutting edge. UK singer Hannah Diamond adds to their catalog with another saccharine-laced pop jam titled “Every Night”. You can purchase it now on iTunes. Stream below.
