VIDEO: Joanna Gruesome Interview at Roskilde

in Blog by

Welsh indie poppers Joanna Gruesome have had a busy 2015:  They’ve released a new album, Peanut Butter, original singer Alanna Mcardle left the band, and they’ve gained two new vocalists in Kate Stonestreet and Roxy Brennan. The new line-up played their second-ever show on the Pavilion Stage at Roskilde, and they answered a few questions for us before running off to see Nicki Minaj.

Watch the video below to hear their thoughts about the new record, nudity at Roskilde, and the genres of imaginary bands with pun names:

VIDEO: Son Lux – You Don’t Know Me

We’re big fans of Son Lux and their latest album, Bones, which is why we’re particularly excited to share their latest video for “You Don’t Know Me.”

Part unhappy marriage narrated by a disillusioned wife, part pastel occult ritual, the video for “You Don’t Know Me” offsets the cold distance of the song’s synthetic composition with sharply contrasting lighting. Mixed in is an assortment of imagery from the bizarre (crushing raw eggs in rubber gloves for no discernible reason) to the sublime (that set dressing!), and some things that are just downright humorous (handing out sticks of gum like communion wafers). Its overall effect is a witty balance. And who knew that chiaroscuro and Wes Andersen color palettes went together so well?

We had a great time when Ryan Lott and co. packed out Stengade at the beginning of 2014, even if they don’t go for the high drama of their latest short. It’s still a few months away, but considering they sold out their last Copenhagen visit, it’s probably not too early to buy tickets for their November show at Vega.
