VIDEO: Twin Sister – “There’s Something About Us”

VIDEO: The Gossip – ‘Pop Goes The World’

We knew The Gossip had superpowers cause like duh, but now that they’ve gone fully discopunk they have acquired the ability to transport themselves and their instruments into the Matrix (nee: Tron) and play amongst a load of neon tubes.

VIDEO: YACHT – “The Afterlife”

This feels like a big, electronic shout out to The Causey Way. Also, Christian fundamentalists and/or cults.
