Freeloader Friday: Thee Oh Sees, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Ft. Matt Berninger), Honeyblood, Kina Grannis, Nothing & Sebastian Bach
It’s that time again! The weekend has arrived. And with it, quite an array of music out there to get you going on your 2-day hiatus. So, as always, we’ve compiled our own little list of ditties for you to enjoy.
First up, Thee Oh Sees‘ latest track off their upcoming album. This one’s a flurried frenzy of guitar riff delights with plenty of nods to power-Punk Rock. Following suit, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s latest tune comes parading out the doors with a riveting bass and those alluring, wiry vocals from Ounsworth paired alongside the dark drawl of Matt Berninger’s (The National) voice. The cherry on top of this guitar-themed track sesh? Glasgow gals Honeyblood have a lush twee-Rock track that plants a seed of 60’s Go-Go girls in the mind — maybe it has a little something to do with that “Go, go, go on” line? Regardless, these are some pure Rock babes.
Freeloader Fridays wouldn’t be complete without a few pleasing-to-the-eye music vids, so let’s see what we’ve got this week. There’s Kina Grannis’s totally charming lyric video that includes quite a cast of YouTube characters. Then, Nothing’s kind of hilarious video of them rocking out ultra hardcore to a completely phased-out audience that eventually riots with tomato-throwing. And, finally, Sebastian Bach really turns up the heat with scantily-clad seduction to drive the “Temptation” theme home.
So there’s the short, sweet and varied playlist for all you Freeloaders this week. Enjoy the weekend, and see you back here on Monday!
