Video Bonanza: featuring OLO Worms, Nataly Dawn, Duologue, Sandra Kolstad and more

olowormsRoll up, roll up, another video bonanza is upon us... And this week the musicians are doing their best to get our attention, with mad and maddening attempts at entertainment that don’t always pull off.

First to test the tumulus waters of fame is internet heavy weight Nataly Dawn, one half of YouTube sensation Pomplamoose.

You'd think after a massively successful test run the the Californian based songstress would know what she's doing, but instead she goes for intimate intensity on her video for “I Just Wanted You to Get Old”, the new single taken from her debut album How I Knew Her, out February 11th. Not going to lie, it's a bit boring, which is why most of this description is given over to gen-u-ine fact.

At least she didn't go the way of Sin Fang, who's got himself into a spot of bother in his video for “Look at the Light”. His brother Mani Sigfússon directs a clip that sees time run backwards and laser beams come out of Sin Fang’s eyes. Might want to get that looked at.

Meanwhile Duologue sensibly recruite BAFTA nominee Robert Sheenan for their “Push It” video, putting on a spectacular attempt with an equally decent song.

Tim Digby-Bell from Duologue comments, “We were all so excited to be working with Robert on this project. It’s been a great experience and just brilliant to have a top actor who wanted to be involved”. Well said Tim.

Norway’s Sandra Kolstad goes au natural in her video for “Run Away”, a gorgeous slice of electro pop that proves her title as Queen of the genre but falls short on artistic direction. Unless she means to come off a bit pretentious, who knows.

The song is taken from her 2012 album (Nothing Lasts) Forever.

Back to a rustic looking England for OLO Worms’ “Curves” video, making mince meat out of the competition with straw hats and log carrying. That’ll do it.

Finally, Avital Raz tops the good pile with her video for “Oh, Isabel”, a frightening vision of a dolls house gone about grimm. The single is taken from Infidelity, the new album out on Sotones soon.
