Simple Minds 'Blindfolded' by Damien Reeves

Simple Minds 'Blindfolded' by Damien Reeves

Simple Minds are back making new music in the spirit of their early electronica, and Damien Reeves' promo for Blindfolded is characterised by moving landscapes split mid-screen, captured on a train journey through Europe. It's a cool effect, and added to the constant motion perfectly compliments the trucking groove of the Minds' soundtrack.

Søren Schaller's second video for the London-based Kiwi rock outfit I Am Giant has the band performing in a sun-dappled field at dawn.

Kwabs 'Walk' by David Mould

Kwabs 'Walk' by David Mould
