GEMS shares “Blow Out The Light”

December 13, 2016 12:05 pm

“Blow Out The Light” is the first track in the series “Every Full Moon”. The full moon represents a time of culmination and fulfillment, of coming full circle, and a symbolic illumination in our inner lives that is mirrored in the night sky. GEMS will be releasing a new song with every full moon. Stream “Blow Out The Light” here.

“Blow Out The Light” is not the usual breakup song, mostly because the ex-couple wrote the song together. It’s release on December’s Long, Cold Full Moon reflects the hardships of a breakup: excessively reflecting on the past, trying to move on, and wanting the pain to vanish like a candle blown out in a dark room.  The production is true to GEMS’ dark and dreamy nature, but is even more crisp and alluring.

“Get A Yes” music video

Watch Sad13’s new video for “Get A Yes” via Pitchfork. Your new step-by-step guide to consent. Directed by Isabel Farrington.

Sadie Dupuis on the video: “I wanted to make a tribute to ’90s-style group dance videos, and my childhood friend Patsy Gay, who spends her days as a dance archivist, put together a sample reel of choreography using moves from Spice Girls, Aaliyah, Salt-N-Pepa, Janet Jackson, and Jordan Knight vids… plus Stephanie Tanner and Urkel. Isabel Farrington, who directed the video, styled it as a late-night TV infomercial about teaching the dos and don’ts of getting consent to dance with your partner. We filled the video with tons of our friends and shot it over a couple days at Silent Barn.”

Race Banyon / Lontalius remix MADEIRA’s “Manipulator”

November 17, 2016 11:59 am

Race Banyon / Lontalius gave MADEIRA’s track “Manipulator” the remix treatment. Head over to Dummy to stream the breezy new mix. “Manipulator” is taken from MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, released earlier this year.

“Stylistically, it mixes the breezy, head-over-shoulder vocal delivery MADEIRA’s known for, with raindrop synth melodies and the clockwork rhythm style fellow New Zealand producer Race Banyon (bka Lontalius) deployed earlier in the year on this collaboration with DJ Dahi and Ty Dolla $ign. The end result is an affecting piece of work that nonchalantly looks backward before charging forward.”

Catch MADEIRA on her homecoming tour this month!
November 19th – Christchurch, NZ – Space Room
Novembre 25th – Auckland, NZ – Whammy Bar
November 26th – Wellington, NZ – Moon
