New Music Videos You Need To Watch
April 6th, 2016 | IMX Inside Iceland
Who loves watching music videos? You? It’s your lucky day! We’ve picked a bunch of freshly minted videos to keep you entertained. Featuring juicy nuggets of creativity from Máni Orrason, Tonik Ensemble, Spítali and Antimony. We got you covered, sit back and enjoy the ride.
For ‘Wake Me Up’ Máni goes all cinematic romcom with a loving search for our hero conducted through the streets of Madrid. Directed by the talented Axier Espinosa. It stars Laia Manzanares from Tame Impalas ‘The Less I Know The Better’ and Máni, of course.
Take a hyper real romantic journey into the inner word of nature and love with Tonik Ensemble’s video for ‘Imprints’. Inspired by the words of the song, the video contains reflections on life and existence, and especially on the footprints that we leave in life.
Newborn Spítali is the freshly formed collaboration between Icelandic pairing Halldór Ragnarssonand Sindri Már Sigfússon. Sigfússon trades under the Sin Fang moniker and is usually found dabbling in experimental indie arts (both solo and as a part of ‘supergroup’ GANGLY), while these days Ragnarsson is first and foremost a visual artist, though the two have previously worked together musically in Seabear. The very same Ragnarsson describes ‘You’, the first musical child produced by Spítali, as a “new búmm-búmm-tiss song that I made with a friend”, which tells us that this guy has a cheeky sense of humour, on top of a lot of creative talent!
Antimony is an atmospheric alt-pop band comprising singer Rex Beckett (originally from Montreal), producer and guitarist Sigurður Angantýsson (Knife Fights), and bassist and singer Birgir Sigurjón Birgisson (Godchilla, Panos From Komodo). The trio formed in summer 2014 playing minimal, dark coldwave, and quickly discovered their fondness for producing dreamy, soaring electronic pop, heavily laden with post-adolescent emotion, sexual frustration and nightlife ennui. The band are warming up for Sigur Rós at the Citadel Festival in London this July.
