OFFICIAL VID: NO – There’s A Glow

March 31, 2014

Los Angeles indie rock band NO is certainly the grand champion today when it comes to coolness factor, thanks to their Grand Theft Auto inspired music video for single There’s A Glow. Who hasn’t played GTA at some point or another in their lives? Okay, maybe some people haven’t, but I sure have. Replete with the violence and brutality that the video game is known for, the video has already racked up many views in just one day. Smart move, NO! Ready for NO to really explode in the scene, kids? I knew when I first heard this band they were going to be huge some day. There’s A Glow is a brooding gem off NO’s recent debut album El Prado, which boasts endless great, moody tunes, some of which certainly remind me a lot of The National and Matt Berninger. The song is one of my faves off the album, along with Leave The Door Wide Open.

I had a feeling this was going to be a treat when I first saw this announced on my Facebook feed in the morning. Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA remixed rising star Tinashe’s hot single 2 On, which features Schoolboy Q. I thought I featured the original on IHM some time ago, but I can’t seem to find the post. How odd. In any case, many of you probably already heard the original, since it’s been making some mad waves lately. The always versatile and talented Jennifer Lee gives us a lavish, atmospheric rendition of the R&B flavored pop track. Simply stunning.

Australia’s Thief seems to be picking up on the buzz charts lately, and it’s well deserved. He’s one to watch closely as the year progresses. Late last year, he released an excellent EP titled Closer, and the title track is one percolating, incredible piece of catchy, soulful electronic pop. I featured the snappy tune the first chance I could. Australian producer Akouo has remixed the track, giving it even more refreshing oscillation and an absolutely hypnotizing, electrifying Flume like chill trap beat. Ah, yessssss.

A little over a month ago, I discovered a producer from Washington named BLVCK CEILING. His haunting, witchy music immediately was immediately appealing to me, since I’m pretty fond of the dark stuff. I really dug his remix of Kreayshawn’s Gucci Gucci, as did many of you. BLVCK CEILING’s remix of Katy Perry’s Dark Horse is also wickedly compelling, though it’s considerably less draggy and ghoulish. It’s a great synthy hip hop twist on Katy Perry.
