Pagan Unveil Video For Silver

Friday, 06 July 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Pagan have unveiled a video for Silver.

The track features on the Melbourne-based blackened rock 'n' roll quartet's debut album, 'Black Wash', which is out now in the UK and Europe via Hassle Records.

View the record's cover art and the new clip below. Discussing the track and its accompanying visual, the band said:

"Silver is a story of toxic love; of two people who serve as each other’s biggest demons. It’s a tale of trying to salvage some sort of happiness with the person who brings out the worst in you, even though you know you also bring out the worst in them. The tragedy plays out over a very Pagan take on a straight-up pop soundtrack, with a subtle tip of the hat to the classic guitar rock of the 1970s.

"The video for Silver was filmed and directed by our very clever friend, Aidan McDonald on a beautiful property owned by the family of another dear friend, Emma McEvoy, called Tanglewood Estate. This is the first look inside the Church of Black Wash and captures the pure, ritualistic energy that possesses us every single time the four of us make noise together."

 

Pagan will embark on their first headlining tour of Australia next month, with stops lined up in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart and Sydney. Tickets are on sale now.

Nice Electricity: Inside Jawbone's Sizzling Old School Debut

Photo: Rob Blackham Sometimes an album arrives from out of nowhere and knocks you off your feet. There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.

Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
