Taken By Trees is back with a new video for “Only You.” Directed by Armen Harootun, the video sets out to explore the themes of love and sensual joy. Watch above. You can download the song now at iTunes and Amazon.
“To me the idea of the video came from the resistance of another idea. I became tired of watching videos of the same thing: a man chasing a woman, or visa versa. It seemed appropriate to consider love as something that doesn’t have to be between a man and a woman. The video is a showcase, not a demonstration of that idea.” – Armen Harootun
In addition to video, we have a new “Only You” remix to share. Created by LA producer Belief (EI-P, Murs, Kate Boy), the track slowly builds over the tropical beat to a synthy dance jam. Stream below.
Cayucas are coming at you with their awesome new video for “High School Lover,” starring lead singer Zach Yudin and his band: Ben Yudin on bass (twin brother to Zach), Banah Winn on keys and Casey Wojtalewicz on drums. Missing in the action is guitar player Christian Koons. Although the video isn’t a complete narrative, Director Cameron Dutra called on the song’s origin when putting it all together. He tells us “‘High School Lover’ is about a girl who would write Zach love letters, yet he would never respond despite actually liking her back. I tried to abstract the idea of a high school girl’s notebook with doodles and sketches into stop motion graphics and titles.” Watch above!
“High School Lover” is found on Cayucas’s debut album, Bigfoot – out officially on April 30! Check out the album artwork above and the tracklisting below! Bigfoot was produced by none other than Richard Swift (record at his studio too!).

Here it is >>> a brand new video for Taken By Trees’ “Large.” The song is off her recently released album, Other Worlds. Directed by Ariel Rechtshaid (Solange, Blood Orange, Usher), the video was shot entirely on an iPhone. A baseball-capped Victoria strolls through the streets of Los Angeles, stopping to interact with a variety of places and people. “As I head to the top. Heading for something, never stop. Is this what you had in mind?” Watch above or at Gorilla vs. Bear. Read the rest of this entry »
