You might want to grab a tissue for this one Watching Rihanna in her latest video release for her track "Stay", feat. Mikky Ekko, it’s hard not to tear up. The clip, shot by Sophie Muller, shows the young star at her most vulnerable: stripped down (literally) and with nothing to hide. Every pained expression is caught on tape, reminding us that, yes, even beautiful, rich people go through tough times. It’s hard to tell if this bathtub contemplation is acting or real-life. Either way, it seems like it would take a lot of courage to give a performance like this. So props, RiRi, for being so brave. Watch Rihanna in the official video for her track "Stay", featuring Mikky Ekko, off of her latest album Unapologetic below.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Superman kissing a boy… Sunshine hails from Vancouver, where it’s probably raining. Their first video, “Showering with Wine” showcases this inherent juxtaposition. Batman and Superman behave all too familiar, indulging in vices while maneuvering through the city. And if you're wondering, there's no Bat Mobile and Superman can’t fly. Conversely, the costumed characters wander the night by foot and train as they progressively become wilder, a pace reflected through quick transitions between blurred and focused camerawork--you'll feel as dizzy as the stars. Sunshine is a new-wave indie rock outfit that manages to maintain a dark and brooding atmosphere while delivering gazey, upbeat tracks. Their Bandcamp will host their self-titled record due Feb. 26 featuring appearances from members of The Raveonettes, The New Pornographers, and Morrissey’s band. Watch Sunshine's video "Showering With Wine" below.
Digging Alice's new purple 'do Why so sad though? Crystal Castles releases a video for their track "Sad Eyes." The super fuzzy, lo-fi production is as chaotic and unpredictable as their live performances (minus the broken bones). And slightly disturbing shots, seem totally appropriate when considering the lyrics: Feign care and warm concern/The kiss you did not earn/Discourage affection Looking to catch "Sad Eyes" live? Crystal Castles just announced new tour dates for Europe, Mexico, and the US. For now, watch Alice and Ethan get dark and creepy in their new video below.
Did Sasha Go Hard film her new video in a dorm room? Sasha Go Hard's new video for "Pretty Fly" isn't what you would expect from a typical rap video. There are some flashing colorful sunglasses, some hipster looking dudes dancing around and an adorable Sasha Go Hard enjoying every moment of it. It kind of reminds us of being in college--nothing was perfect but we made it work and we had fun doing it. Take us back to school, Sasha. Watch the Sasha Go Hard "Pretty Fly" music video.
In case you didn't know, pterodactyls helped make the adidas primeknit adidas releases a tongue-in-cheek behind the scenes look at the making of the adidas Primeknit. The technology used to make the Primeknit fabric, creates almost zero waste (you couldn't even make a mitt for an ant with it) and is able to stitch intricate designs, like a giraffe falling on ice. Even though the fabric is great for the environment (hence that whole no waste thing) it wasn't released without controversy. Nike accused adidas of copying it's Flyknit technology, an accusation which was ruled in favor of adidas last fall. Nike has the right to appeal the decision. Until then it's robots that knit and dinosaurs with laser beams.
