Song/Video: “Final Song”
Why You Want to Listen/Watch: MØ, the Danish singer-songwriter you’ve surely heard on Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” even if you don’t follow electronic music, follows up her 2014 release with new songs “Kamikaze” and “Final Song.” While the video for “Kamikaze” had MØ in an urban environment, “Final Song” places her in a wild desert. Tomas Whitmore, who’s directed videos for Dillon Francis, directed MØ’s latest. MØ will appear at Capitol Hill Block Party on July 22nd.
Artist: Adia Victoria
Song/Video: “Dead Eyes”
Why You Want to Listen/Watch: A stark and scary video, and one you might not want to watch alone. Spoiler: Victoria gets away from her pursuers in a Thunderbird! The southern rock/country/gothic artist just released her debut, Beyond The Bloodhounds, and hits the Seattle area for a June 11th show at the Sunset. The tour is called Me & The Devil. This is intense.
Artist: Massive Attack featuring Young Fathers
Song/Video: “Voodoo In My Blood”
Why You Want to Listen/Watch: Rosamund Pike!! Rosamund Pike!! And the song is awesome, too. Directed by Ringan Ledwidge, the video features Pike defying gravity. Very cool.

Why You Want to Listen/Watch: The Los Angeles disco band turns up in a couple’s evening. I like the ’70s design.

Song/Video: “Wild Heart”
Why You Want to Listen/Watch: Brisbane, Australia’s R&B singer-songwriter ROMY is super. I love her voice. Why wouldn’t you want to watch a video featuring her? And directed by her! She looks fabulous.
Details: “This video is a precursor to a trap infused, r&b/pop crossover jam,” says its promo. ROMY, who has worked with greats such as T-Pain, will release her debut album in 2016. I can’t wait.
