Message to Venus Premiere New Music Video, “Over and Done”

MESSAGE TO VENUS - PROMO 1 - web

Message to Venus will release their new album, ‘Victims & Villains,’ later this year. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere their new music video for “Over and Done.” Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Drummer JuanMa Font said, “There are many reasons for us to be excited for ‘Over and Done,’ like the fact that we got to work again with movie director Andres Ramirez, but mostly because this is the first video where we get to act out a story. The four of us tried to come up with a plot we could do in a minimalist setting. We did around a million revisions with each iteration getting more and more minimalist until the point where everything could be shot in two days or less, which was what we were aiming for. After the band had agreed on that final version, we then worked out the final, but probably most important, details with Andrés: Nailing down how the story related the shots, the locations that we wanted to use and of course how that affected our shooting time and budget. We all agreed on two locations: the huge sound stage in Miami for the performance parts and our very own apartment for the story parts.”

Vocalist/guitarist Jandre Nadal said, “Working again with Andres Ramirez was a great experience; he’s the photography director, envisions everything, directs, camera man, editor. He pours himself into the whole process. We had a blast shooting this video and are very proud of the end result.”

To get “Over and Done,” visit iTunes and Spotify. For more on Message to Venus, follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

English Music Festival, Dorchester-on-Thames, review: ‘Ukip in concert?’
There were some impassioned performances and interesting pieces on offer, but this festival perpetuates a far too narrow view of English music, says John Allison







ASAP Rocky had a better time at SXSW than you did

ASAP Rocky had a better time at SXSW than you did

Playing SXSW can be a pretty tedious experience, a week full of countless performances and media obligations that run together like a real-life version of Groundhog Day, only without Bill Murray. Actually, my mistake: Phil Connors does make an appearance.

Which makes ASAP Rocky‘s recent SXSW experience all that more ridiculous. As the Harlem MC recounts in a new interview with the New York Post, his latest trip to Austin saw him tripping on psychedelics while engaging in a serious of sexual encounters.

From Rocky’s own mouth:

Why do you think LSD is so in vogue in rap right now? It’s obviously an influence on your new material, and for artists like Chance the Rapper and ILoveMakonnen too.
There’s definitely a psychedelic influence on my new album. Makonnen gave me acid at SxSW. This n***a looked like Buddha with a Jheri curl! After that, I went back to my mansion and f**ked nine chicks. It was pretty rad. That’s a true story.

Did you say nine women? As in, one fewer than 10?
Yeah, but not all at one time. It’s like group sex. You have three at a time, and then you have three orgies. That’s nine chicks.

Nice to know at least one rock star still exists.
