Today's Video Share: Elia-Damn by Elia

Elia started singing as a young girl in Israel, eventually serving her country as a representative singer during her army service. After serving, she began singing more and more in local bands around the country. Elia soon had grown very connected to the Israeli music scene, having worked with many of the country's top musicians, and was able to begin work on her debut album in Hebrew. The album was nationally acclaimed, seeing (and continuing to see) much airtime on Israeli radio.

With a diverse style, ranging from top 40's pop to soulful R & B, Elia has so much to offer the American pop music world. She brings grit and passion to a genre which is often expected to be clean and monotonous. Elia is a strong and unwavering force of music and feminism, putting her boundless passion into her songs and her sharp mind into her collaborations.

Today's Video Share: Undercover Girl by Loftan

Shot with the help of friends, the video for Loftän’s song “Undercover Girl” interweaves the light-hearted song title with the deeper meaning of the lyrics. While the band intrudes upon the personal lives of their friends getting ready for a date, proving mathematical theorems or partying in the front yard, the lyrics tell the story of a girl hiding behind her self-imposed mask.

Loftän is a German/American pop music duo based in Eugene, Oregon. Janell Riedl, an Oregon native, and Julia Mahncke, a recent transplant from Germany, met in the summer of 2015 at a Pilates studio. They started talking about music, jamming together and very quickly realized they should make this a thing. The duo's indie/pop/folk sound is based around the women's vocal harmonies. In July 2016 they self-released their debut EP "From Here".

Today's Video Share: Head Above Water by This Way North

 Punchy and left of centre, but with a universally appealing groove and melody, This Way North’s live shows are powerful. Cat brings solid groove based, dynamic power drumming, while Leisha sways with swampy slide guitar, slimmed down soul vocals and compelling alt- pop melodies. Sometimes likened to The Black Keys, Tame Impala and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, their unique musical connection creates an explosive sound that’s rarely realised by just two artists on stage. Audiences are drawn in by the powerful performances of these two seasoned musicians. The moment This Way North embrace the stage the audience engage – that’s just how it is.
The video for 'Head Above Water' was shot at a recent fundraiser for the outdoor education group 'Mittagundi' up the remote Glen Valley in the Australian Alps. The video edited by Agostino Soldati and shot by Jerun Terlaak combines stunning footage of the high country and captures the beauty of being present during river floats, time with mates and live music. It is a beautiful representation of the song, its journey and meaning.
