Flat Eric is back, driving down a California coastal highway, about to be overtaken in an identical car by... Flat Eric. Only this other dirty yellow fluffy puppet is actually a she. A Flat Erica, in fact.
Clara Aranovich's video for Beirut's song Perth, from the band's fourth studio album No No No, has a winning concept. It's a lovely split-screen clip, which stages the same choreography by the same dancer set in two very different places: a warm sandy beach and snowy, mountainous woods.
Hector Dockrill has taken an honest, doc-style approach to his performance video for London R&B singer-songwriter Ray Blk. Shot in South London by Deepa Keshvala, the video provides a portrait of Ray and her crew, capturing their style and attitude, as well as their hairstylist and kebab shop of choice.
Adam Buxton presents a new programme of the most creative new music videos, and much more besides, in BUG 50, at the BFI Southbank in London in early March.
The origin of PJ Harvey's The Wheel - both the song and the video – comes from her longstanding creative relationship with photojournalist and filmmaker Seamus Murphy. They began working together with Murphy's series of films to accompany Harvey's last album Let England Shake, after the singer had seen his photojournalism in Afghanistan and Kosovo.
Mimi Cave has put together these wonderfully weird visuals for four-piece LA indie-pop band Lucius. Perfectly matching in tawny suits and apricot-coloured bobs, the ladies of the band Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig distort and multiply in a gallery of flat colour, Greek columns and rectangular plinths.
Elliott Power has released some visually striking, monochromatic visuals for new single Once Smitten directed by Alex Hulsey.
Strong saturated colours abound in Chris Turner - aka Favourite Colour: Black's - hypnotic visuals for Birdy's Keeping Your Head Up, with a bold, photographic vision, tracking through a curious underground world of costumed and masked dancers.
This powerful video for R&B artist and singer-songwriter Leon Bridges's River, was inspired by real events, and although a sombre affair, Bridges' intention to send a message of hope, as well as raise questions, has been fully achieved through the sensitive, cinematic direction of Miles Jay.
