Today sees Jamiroquai release the Charlie Lightening-directed video for their infectious new single "Superfresh," the second official single from eighth studio album 'Automaton'.
You can watch itHERE
Written and self-produced by frontman Jay Kay and Jamiroquai keyboard-maestro Matt Johnson, the disco-drenched summer anthem marks the band's first single since the album landed at #No.1 on iTunes in 38 countries across the world and top three in 5 earlier this year. Inspired by the visual themes behind Automaton and how we as humans interact with the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today, 'Superfresh' perfectly marries electronic music with bass-heavy classic soul to create the English outfit's groundbreaking sound.
It's been an incredible return for the band since the release of 'Automaton', their first record in over nine years, on March 31st. In addition to the album's incredible chart success, the band have sold out their first live dates in over seven years within thirty seconds, have trended globally on each announcement and received massive support at UK radio, including #26 on airplay charts and are #1 on iTunes Pre-Orders.

‘Under Your Spell’ is the 7th album by the Birthday Massacre, and with it comes eleven songs that reveal a side of the Canadian band that audiences may not be familiar with. Driven with the band’s signature, unique blend of spiralling synth melodies, walls of guitar and evocative vocals, the new songs range from dark, aggressive anthems to danceable, pretty pop and hit all the bases that audiences have come to expect. However, there is also a rawness to the emotion being expressed, an openness and vulnerability that feels new.
One thing that is clearer than ever, however, is the tight bond that exists between the band members and their willingness to explore heartbreak and loss together. With these songs, they have entered the darkness of their most fragile emotions and returned with a cohesive and detailed musical portrait that captures both the anger and hope that exist within a moment in time.
The Birthday Massacre continue to make music that is so very unique to them. Once again, they have managed to create an album that somehow feels so familiar, yet challenges the listener to continue alongside them on their ever-changing, ever-growing journey.
The Birthday Massacre have made a second song from their upcoming new album available to hear:-
New song ‘One’ available now via this link : http://bit.ly/2pWPM4D
The Birthday Massacre chose the colour violet for all their subsequent artwork (after their 'Violet' EP), stating that “Violet is the colour of the tragic comedy. We associate it with fantasy and
melancholy. These themes make up much of the band’s lyrical inspiration. The colour also
mirrors our sound dynamic. Our music mixes contrasting elements. In turn, violet is the sum
of two contrasting colours: Red and Blue.”
Multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes shares the official video for 'Venus Fly.' The video, directed and edited by Grimes, also features Janelle Monáe. 'Venus Fly' is now live on Grimes' YouTube; watch the video here: http://smarturl.it/VenusFlyYT
"We used the Phantom cameras to create a feeling of time suspended," said Grimes of the inspiration behind the video.
'Venus Fly' is taken from Grimes' critically-adored album 'Art Angels' (4AD) which had prime placement on basically every End of Year list. Last year, Grimes toured the album, selling out venues and headlining festivals across the world.
