Video: Chromatics – Move A Mountain

Chromatics are sharing a new video for “Move A Mountain, which is directed by Johnny Jewel. The track is taken from their recent album Closer To Grey‘. The album is available to pre-order on 2xLP here. Stream ‘Closer To Grey’ here.

Video: Kraków Loves Adana – Follow The Voice

Kraków Loves Adana are a Hamburg-based duo of Deniz Çiçek and her partner Robert Heitmann. Having recently just signed to Italians Do It Better (Chromatics, Desire, Glass Candy), the band are sharing their new single “Follow The Voice” online now.

Kraków Loves Adana formed in 2006 after eyeing each other for months at the same nightclubs in Germany. The group’s guitar-driven electronic ballads echo dream pop with a melancholic edge.

On Follow The Voice” Johnny Jewel produces the band’s debut single for Italians Do It Better. Deniz Çiçek’s exposed, haunting vocal melodies crash against vivid synthesizers & heavy rhythms to create something unforgettable. Complimenting the sonic landscape of Italians Do It Better staples like Chromatics & Desire, Kraków Loves Adana will be in direct support of Chromatics & Desire on stage for the European leg of the Double Exposure World tour.

The video is directed by the band themselves in Hamburg. Through hypnosis by pendulum, Deniz Çiçek falls into a trance like state – led by a voice, guiding her through a domain that exists just below the threshold of consciousness.

A newly discovered star shining in the Italians Do It Better solar system. They are currently in the studio preparing their forthcoming full length with Johnny Jewel out early next year.

Video: Orion – Time For Crime

Orion brings Cybernetic Noir to the Italians Do It Better family on their debut single “Time For Crime”. Recorded in a bedroom in Rhode Island & mixed by label head Johnny Jewel, Time For Crime is our first glimpse into Orion’s upcoming LP on Italians Do It Better. Inspired by Cyberpunk & Giallo films, the group explores their love of analog synthesis & Italo Disco through the lens of a Dystopian Fantasia.

Video: In Mirrors – Human

Canadian band In Mirrors share new single and video “Human” on Italians Do It Better. The song was produced by label head Johnny Jewel and features their hypnotic brand of minimal wave, krautrock, and post punk. The video was filmed and directed by Johnny Jewel in Los Angeles.

In Mirrors is the sound of reflection. A collage of cinematic synthscapes, ambient noise experimentations, catchy melodies. The slow-burning grooves represent the essence of what we wear on the outside and what’s etched deep inside – pure and tainted, sacred and profane, light and dark. Dissonant but sincere vocals and glistening guitars combined with electronic palettes help us experience the true, visceral gravity of our moments.

From Vancouver, B.C., In Mirrors (comprised of Jesse Taylor, japanese Takashi Inoue and Bill Batt) will hit the road to open the nights for label mates Chromatics & Desire.
