Tendts: “Who Are The Pleiadians” Video

Greek brotherly duo Tendts are making “music that you can dance to, or not!” The compositions of Christos and Fotis Papadakis are both emotive and movement inducing, even though they are written and structured with disparate elements that refuse to fall into obvious patterns. They consist of palpitating beats, imaginative textures, seductive melodies and sporadic bursts of treated vocals.

Following on from a slew of quality releases, the duo have now returned with their new EP “It’s Everywhere”, a concept six-tracker soundtracking Tendts’ intergalatic encounter with The Pleiadians (dimension traversing Nordic aliens to the unenlightened) at the far edge of the universe. One of our favorite cuts from the record, the EPs opener “Who Are The Pleiadians”, gets a trippy video that we’re delighted to premiere it on La.Ga.Sta. Check it out.

The “It’s Everywhere” EP, backed with a stellar remix from Palmbomen, is out now on Lower Parts. Buy it here.

Melbourne’s finest dance-pop band Cut Copy have shared a new video for their great track “Airborne”, the first single in four years since 2013’s LP “Free Your Mind”. Director Gerson Aguerri of the Barcelona-based production company CANADA weaves a tale that begins with a mysterious light shooting across the sky, unbeknownst to Cut Copy lead vocalist Dan Whitford, who is composing a new song on his keyboard.

Speaking about the video, Dan Whitford says, “The video for our song ‘Airborne’ is probably the most interesting and most challenging that I’ve ever been involved in. It was shot in Barcelona, all through the night for three days running and culminated with a final scene with me having not slept for 24 hours and playing a piano on the back of a moving truck. To say it was a once in a lifetime experience is no understatement! Despite the sleep deprivation, Gerson and his team at CANADA did a fantastic job bringing this surreal story to life.”

The single “Airborne” is out now on Astralwerks. Get it here.

Hailing from Rio de Janeiro, Balako, the duo of Rodrigo Peirão and Diogo Strausz, land on Joe Goddard’s label Greco-Roman with their incredible debut single “Hora De Balako”. It’s an infectious slice of Latin-flavored disco that’s perfect for your next summer rides. The Brazilian duo aren’t about making music to fit. Their styles range from techno and house to salsa and carimbo, blending 70’s disco and funk in the process and creating something both retro sounding and current. The word Balako derives from an 80’s Brazilian slang word which fittingly translates as – ‘a good type of mess.’ The single “Hora De Balako” comes with a retro video, which Balako’s Rodrigo Peirão co-directed with Mauro Lima.

“Hora De Balako” is out now on Greco-Roman. Get it here
