Video: ODESZA – “All We Need feat. Shy Girls
ODESZA’s second single, “All We Need (feat. Shy Girls)” is an irresistible slice of 21st Century, blue-eyed soul. Produced by a duo whose feel for an infectious melody is matched by their firm footing in the world of bleeding-edge electronics, it’s the perfect follow up to 2014’s hit “Say My Name (feat. Zyra)”.
Now, they’re proud to share the dark, artful video for “All We Need (feat. Shy Girls)” from director Kevan Funk. Harrison Mills of ODESZA commented, “Kevan Funk and crew did a fantastic job producing a beautiful short for our track “All We Need”. We chose Kevan for his use of light, color and cinematic directing style. His use of dark imagery to convey the beauty as well as the tragedy of love and addiction in “All We Need” was a perfect contrast to the bright elements of the track while also playing upon the subtle melancholy undertones of the lyrics.”
Accompanying the video is a series of excellent remixes from Giraffage, Dawn Golden, Robert DeLong, Will Saul, Autograf and more. Autograf’s remix of “All We Need” went to #1 on the Hype Machine popular chart already, making that ODESZA’s 21st #1.
Video: Tei Shi – Bassically
Tei Shi is back with more music in the form of a brand new EP which is being released on Mermaid Avenue, “Verde” is out April 14th 2015 in the US.
The EP features the infectious pop anthem “Bassically,” a track which went straight to #1 on Hype Machine and was described by Gorilla vs Bear as “one of the more badass, body-movin jams we’ve heard this year.”
NYLON today premiered the video for the track, directed by Nicholas Pesce, saying: “If you’re not already familiar, a good introduction to her sound-which deftly explores the borderline of electro-pop and R&B-is her song “Bassically.” The nearly five-minute-long track juxtaposes her signature soft, dreamy vocals with a heavy, percussive synth and a bumping bassline before building to a climax. It’s both seductive, energetic, and insanely catchy.” Tei Shi notes, “I wanted the video to look like what the song sounds like – fun and empowering without taking itself too seriously. So we created a fun fictional comic world with a troop of bad ass girls“.
Off the heels of her last collaboration with Glass Animals, Tei Shi has again lent her vocal prowess to a new Shy Girls track “Arrest Me”. You can check it out below (available for free download, too).
Tei Shi will be playing SXSW in Austin this year, watch this space for the full schedule.
