Premiere: Paul Rocha Takes A Somewhat Morbid Yet Also Hilarious Look At Those We Revere Or Disdain From History In New Single, ‘They’re All Dead’

Taken from his ‘Apophenia’ album, set for release July 9, ‘They’re All Dead’ by Paul Rocha is a somewhat hilarious, if morbid – and altogether matter-of-fact – look at so many of the people we in high esteem from over the course of history, and those we don’t…are…all dead. No matter who we are, and no matter what we do, eventually we’ll all have one thing in common, and that is we’ll all be dead.

‘They’re All Dead’ is out June 18 on Paisley Palm Records.

PIERA – ‘Cosmic Reaction’

Singing as PIERA, Piera Klein and Michah Plissner combine their diverse musical CVs and create dark, daring electronic-synth pop with deceptively simple elements that conceal their complex nature. New single, ‘Cosmic Reaction’ follows on from their recent heart-racing single, ‘Unraveling’, and just like the previous release the duo continues to arouse with mystical indie and synth-bursting intimacy. Taking inspiration from the likes of David Bowie, the hypnotic Los Angeles-based pair encourage their listeners to likewise take their inspiration from them, and create art, enjoy nature, and “arouse your consciousness”.

Rob Murat – ‘Love Me Love’

Rob Murat’s witty, yet pointed clip for ‘Love Me Love’ examines that unmistakable blend of joy and terror that accompanies all lovers who find themselves far from each other – whether it be a feeling of liberation, or anxiety, that has its roots in love, concern, or simple paranoia. This latest single from the celebrated actor and R&B singer songwriter, features award winning Ghanaian artist, Adina Thembi, and the video will resonate for the jealous and the suspected alike: and just like all good thrillers, there’s a twist at the end.

Kjersti Long – ‘Eleanor Rigby’

There may not be a person on earth unfamiliar with the enigmatic Beatles song, ‘Eleanor Rigby’. It’s as much an unanswerable riddle, an interlocking puzzle of character sketches, and an extraordinary exercise in songwriting – an exquisite amalgamation of classically-inspired strings and pop. But above all else, it’s a pained cry of anguish. Timeless, the words The Beatles sang in 1966, “Look at all the lonely people,” are even today with all our modern technology just as powerful and relevant as they were then. It’s no wonder the song is still just as relatable for young artists now as it was back then; especially those who’ve grown up with that particular sense of alienation that overexposure to social media encourages.

Jaybandsome ‘The Weekend’

We last saw Jaybandsome in the clip for his debut single, ‘Looking Up’, where he was rapping and singing in front of his high school. Although his flow was that of an experienced rapper, his world was that of a teen: he did wheelies on his bike, flirted with classmates, and rode on the passenger side of a car. New single ‘The Weekend’ is only a few months later, but what a difference! Jaybandsome reminds us twice in the song that he’s now seventeen – still young, but firmly behind the wheel.

Eddie Cohn – ‘Animals’

The music video for ‘Animals’, the latest single from singer-songwriter Eddie Cohn, sees Los Angeles presented by Cohn and director Leslie Andrew Ridings as a mirage: an urban dream rising from a post-industrial landscape. But they’ve not done it with film manipulation, but rather, they let LA do it by herself; they’ve set up on the periphery of the city, and allowed the unique radiance of Southern California and the overwhelming presence of natural light to carry the video into a parallel world. Meanwhile Cohn serves as our guide to this striking Los Angeles, and he shares a side of this cultured city that’s often overlooked.
