From Atlanta to Portland, Nashville to New York, to the worldwide stage, we’re proud to be working with artists from all over. The latest HIP Picks – Weekly Client Roundup is here; take a look at the videos, and learn more about the clips by reading below.
Like their namesake Le Corbusier, Brooklyn-based electronic-psych duo Corbu – Amanda Scott and Jonathan Graves – builds their songs with care from a sturdy foundation of beats, sounds, and textures. Their 2016 debut Crayon Soul was mixed by psychedelic mastermind Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala), and they’ve dazzled crowds in support of Bloc Party and on stage at Austin City Limits and Electric Forest. “Lost & Found”(directed by Corbu), from the Lost & Found EP, takes us back to Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, plunging the viewer into a verdant dream.
Young Atlanta vocalist Gaten is taking the whole country by storm, with a series of new songs in advance of his Opp-eration Z6ne mixtape. “Add Up” is the latest single, and it matches Gaten’s rhymes with tight, sharp production from Canadian beatmaker Rylouis. The “Add Up” music video (directed by Global Visionz) puts Gaten’s swagger front and center, sometimes outlined in a burst of flame.
Atlanta rapper Trap Commander has the larger-than-life personality of 2 Chainz, the melodic sensibility of Migos, the microphone command of T.I., the low-key menace of Gucci Mane – but really, no one can match this up-and-comer. “He Hell” is the follow-up to his 2020 album A Trapper’s Ambition, and its video (directed by Marko Steez) makes the star toy-sized – yet still larger-than-life in terms of personality.
Gregory Bowdry, better known as Stringz EMB, has toured coast-to-coast with ATG of Discrepancies, Bubba Sparxx, and Murphy Lee of the St. Lunatics. “Lights On” is his newest single, and – joined by freelance musician from SE England Will Buchanan and fellow St. Louis icon Katarra Parson – he opens up about his personal struggles with mental illness. The “Lights On” music video (directed by Andrew Stephen) was released in May, coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Month, and it leaves us with an important message: “it’s ok to not be okay.”
Portland-based rock band Last Giant plays music that echoes the ’90s and ’00s – while creating a sound that’s all their own. Live From The Hallowed Halls is a thirty minute concert film that features lyricist/singer/guitarist Ryan Heise, drummer Matt Wiles, bassist Palmer Cloud, and guitarist Bo Fickle all captured by filmmaker Brian Nelson. “Idiology (Live)” is Last Giant at their most intense, a testament to the power of rock.
The Tennessee Werewolves could be called the “Rolling Stones of Country Music”, carriers of the rock and roll tradition in the heart of Nashville with the spirit of the honky-tonk. “Amy’s Gone” tells the story of a woman on the run, who can never settle down comfortably in a hostile world. In the “Amy’s Gone” music video (directed by The Tennessee Werewolves), frontwoman Angel Mary brings Amy’s story to life while Christian and Antoine Wolf back her up with some backwoods thunder of their own.
Audiopharmacy is an eclectic world hip-hop tribe that features members with Native American, Black, Pilipinx, Fijian-Indian, Mexican, Brazilian, European, and Chinese Tibetan Buddhist roots – and they’ve performed in just as many places: the US, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, France, the UK, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Samoa, New Zealand (Aotearoa), Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Ecuador, Morocco, Oman, Cyprus, and Tanzania. On “Lose Your Mind”, MCs Ras K’dee, Gregg Green, and Desirae Harp each take center stage in turn. More of a movie than a video, “Lose Your Mind” was shot, directed, and produced by founder Teao Sense, with visuals as epic and sprawling as the music he also produced.
