Spanish songstress Joana Serrat has revealed her new video for 'Cloudy Heart’, directed by MANSON. The song, taken from Joana’s 2016 album Cross The Verge, is a lovely duet with Neil Halstead (Slowdive, Mojave 3) and also features The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner on guitar. Describing the inspiration behind the video, Joana explains:
“We wanted to capture the contrast of the song’s lyrics by matching them with the dark and the light in the video. I like the fact that we also shot some of it on the beach (it’s actually a really cool detail that links me to Neil [Halstead]’s home) and it’s beautiful the idea of singing to someone that you can’t see but you can feel. I love all the superimposed images that represent the chaos and doubts of the multiple people we can become when nothing’s clear. I love that dusky Lynch road. The heart’s paths are not clear and easy.”

Husky Loops are a new London-based band who have shared their new track‘Fighting Myself’ which in their own words, "is about struggle and everyday hindrance that leads to an outburst of anxiety and energy sonically represented by the final part of the song.”
Made up of Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass), the three first met at school in Bologna, Italy. Fast forward fifteen years to a relocation to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art, they joined forces to form Husky Loops, just over a year ago.
