[Music Video] Kllo – Potential

Melbourne-native cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul have often been featured here on The Music Ninja, under the artist name of Kllo. They’ve returned today with their first single release since their acclaimed 2017 album Backwater, which firmly cemented their sound and identity as artists. With nothing left to prove, Lam and Kaul take some creative liberties and experiment a bit more on latest single, titled “Potential”.

“Potential” interlaces Kaul’s characteristically dreamy vocals with moody piano chords, said to have been conceived in a green room while on tour one day. You see a little bit more R&B influence come through on this track, representative of the duo’s desire to expand beyond the sonic persona that they established for themselves in 2017. The emotional track laments the loss of a love that just couldn’t work out. It comes with an accompanying music video, check it out below:

If you liked what you heard, Kllo will be kicking off a tour at the end of the month, making stops in the States before heading off to Europe. Tour dates and a ticket link are available below. Continue reading

The Indigo Project – As Always [TMN VIDEO PREMIERE]

The Indigo Project
As Always

Coming hot off a string of successful shows, including Live at Leeds, Yorkshire-based The Indigo Project have something to tide fans over until their next tour.

“As Always,” their first single of 2018, has been making waves for the past month or so, leading the way to cheering fans across the UK this spring. Anthemic in nature, it sizzles with eccentric guitar work, equal parts booming and splashy percussion, and a delightfully raucous chorus. It’s energetic and infectious — the type of tune you can picture yourself screaming at the top of your lungs in a rowdy, humid venue.

The accompanying video, which we’re premiering here today, showcases a Day in the Life-style story, interspersed with live-action shots of Joe Spink (Frontman), Oliver Barry (guitar), Alex Crow (bass), Tony Francis (guitar) and Jack Manktelow (drums). It’s the perfect visualization, according to the band:

A teenage tale of love and loss, “As Always” is about knowing that someone will always come back to you even if it really isn’t good for you

Check out the music video below, then head over and support these lads online.

[Music Video] Midoca – The Feeling Is Gone

One of the more intriguing artists we’ve had our eyes and ears on as of late has been Midoca. With his music and videos he’s ensnared us in his creative web and we’re not looking to escape anytime soon.

His latest release is the indie electronic crossover “The Feeling Is Gone” that is sure to conjure up some heavy emotions despite its name. This record is almost therapeutic in tone, but in a cathartic way of letting something meaningful go. With the music video it does a wonderful job of translating that tone over to the visual medium. It’s a simple idea set upon awesome landscapes that pull you in. Yet again Midoca has stricken us with his talents.
