Every now and then, a music video comes along that stands out for its film-like quality, storytelling ability and great direction that adds something extra to the music, See for yourself but we think that Young Astronaut and Richard Dimery have done themselves proud. Directed by Richard Dimery (James Bay, Lower Than Atlantis, Neck Deep), the video for Chasing El Dorado was shot on location at the roller disco Rollerworld in Colchester.

Vision: Gurr, #1985.

When two best friends start a band, songs get filled with inside jokes. Released last October, Gurr’s debut full-length In My Head took the listener on a journey of Andreya Casablanca and Laura Lee‘s friendship, their life, and a step further into their own world. Having met in an American Studies class in Berlin, and after spending time in the US together, the US West coast sound was an obvious influence on their music, but Andreya and Laura draw from a wide set of pop culture references and personal experiences for their debut album Andreya Casablanca told Rockshot Magazine that “#1985...

Vision: Pillow Person, On Your Way.

Pillow Person, the solo project of Sarah Jones, has shared a video for her new single, On Your Way. The video, which veers between bubblegum-pop-pretty and fascinatingly gruesome, was filmed by Isaac Eastgate, who has directed videos for Dutch Uncles, LA Priest and Connan Mockasin. Sarah said the following about the video:“After making the video, I realised that I must have been inspired from a memory from many years ago when I saw Mortiis live and the lights were too bright.” On Your Way is the jaunty, effervescent follow-up to Pillow Person’s debut single Go Ahead.

Vision: Hotei & Iggy Pop, Walking Through The Night.

Hotei & Iggy Pop combine their musical talents and go Walking Through The Night. The video follows a man’s nocturnal journey through the seedy back streets of Tokyo, lured by the bright lights of temptation. Stunningly filmed and featuring shots of Iggy Pop and footage of Hotei, the video is a gloriously evocative taste of Hotei’s homeland that chimes with the snarling lyrics. The track is taken from the album Strangers, which was released last year through Spinefarm Records and is Hotei’s first international release. The album features an array of guests including Emigrate/Rammstein’s Richard Z. Kruspe, Bullet For...

A long time favourite of RockShot, Rachel Yamagata returns with the beautifully hook-ridden song Let Me Be Your Girl. The video features West Wing actor Allison Janney and is directed by Josh Radnor Speaking about his directorial debut, Radnor says: “The video is a lot about image and reflecting and the costumes and masks we wear for each other. But also, the more I sat with this, the more I realised it’s about actors in a certain way: it’s weird and hard to be human and deal with yourself, but when you find the right role or character or even outfit,...

A Celebration Of 7 Shows 24 Hours & 1 City. “We performed seven shows and two halves in twenty four hours.
