Jeremy Redmore, former frontman of New Zealand rock band Midnight Youth, has premiered the official music video for the latest single to be lifted from his debut solo album Clouds Are Alive.
The video for One Day Alone was uploaded to the Tauranga-raised singer’s YouTube page earlier today, and is the culmination of the 29 Second Project; an approach which saw seven directors from across the globe charged with creating 29 second-long visuals stimulated solely by the song’s instrumental and two key words that they were each given to start and end their contribution.
Posting about the song on his blog last month, Redmore said that One Day Alone, “was the first track recorded for this album, one of two that made the cut, from a session with Wayne Bell at Roundhead Studios.”
He continues: “We put a band together consisting of Wayne himself on drums, Marcus Lawson on bass, Brett Adams on electric and myself on acoustic guitar. I wrote the song in about 15 minutes and it didn’t take too much longer than that to record.“
It follows the release of the record’s first two singles Bad Philosophy and Run, Run, the video for the latter you can catch below, whilst Clouds Are Alive was released to iTunes in July. Download link here.
Following the release of their single Perfect Vision back in April, Philadelphian five piece Cheerleader have announced details of their upcoming debut EP, and premiered its title track.
On Your Side was posted on the band’s Soundcloud page last week and will be sent to iTunes on 7 October, also featuring the aforementioned lead single and two brand new tracks called Future Stars and Tomorrow Always Knows.
The hazy. nostalgia-soaked guitar track is another dreamy slice of sun-kissed, catchy indie-pop from the band who are made up of Joe Haller, Chris Duran, Josh Pannepacker, Carl Bahner and Paul Impellizeri.
The EP will arrive just as they are hitting the road for a string of US tour dates, after spending the Summer opening for The Hold Steady on their recent UK tour. Full details at the foot of this post.

Stacie Orrico has premiered a brand new collection of material, marking her return to the music scene as a lead artist after an absence of eight years.
The 28 year old singer posted her seven song strong Reawakened EP on Soundcloud earlier today as a precursor for her fourth studio album, which she announced earlier this year.
Orrico scored five UK Top 40 hits between 2003 and 2006, including (There’s Gotta Be) More To Life and Stuck. More recently she collaborated with The Fray on a cover of The Fugees’ Ready or Not which appeared on the band’s 2012 album Scars & Stories.
Watch the video for (There’s Gotta Be) More To Life below.
Alfie and Harry Hudson Taylor – or Hudson Taylor, as they’re better known – have premiered the official music video for their new single Chasing Rubies online.
The guitar-driven, folk-infused number has been chosen as the second single from the duo’s upcoming debut album and is available to preorder on UK iTunes now ahead of its official release on 5 October.
Chasing Rubies originally appeared as an acoustic track on the Irish brothers’ debut American EP of the same name which came out last August before the pair signed to Polydor. But, like their last single Battles, Chasing Rubies has been re-recorded for the forthcoming release.
Hudson Taylor will be supporting Jake Bugg on his upcoming UK tour which kicks off at Cardiff Arena on 5 October. For all tickets, dates and venues details, head over to their official website.
A classy slice of contemporary rock and soul here from Pacific Islands-hailing four piece Common Kings who have just premiered the official music video for their latest single Kingdom Come.
The influences listed on the group’s official Facebook Page range from D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder to Gypsy Kings, Earth Wind & Fire and Maroon 5, but the latest cut from their forthcoming EP also throws back to Phil Spector’s distinctive Wall of Sound production era of the 60s with its rich, reverberating bass and drums and orchestral accompaniment providing a stunning backdrop for lead singer JR King’s powerful vocals.
“All I need is to make the night last forever, cos I got the key – Let me take you to the gates of heaven,” pleads King with raw sincerity on the track which is available to download everywhere on iTunes now.
We first wrote about London four piece Wolf Gang back in April after the title track from their Black River EP brought their anthemic, synth-loaded sound to our attention.
Having spent the Summer opening for Bastille on their latest US tour, the band, made up of singer Max McElligott, guitarist Gavin Slater, bass player James Wood and drummer Lasse Petersen, have now returned with their new single Lay Your Love Down and it’s another soaring, stadium-friendly pop rock belter that is guaranteed to go down well on their current run of Stateside gigs where they’re headlining alongside fellow Neon Gold favourites and Cherrytree Records labelmates Sir Sly.
