Melbourne duo The Leafs go international for this great new video for ‘Come, Take My Hand’, making their way around Paris in stop-motion.

Fascinator – Girl I Want
What, you’ve never seen a man play the balloon drums with a pair of bananas? Fascinator’s video for ‘Girl I Want’ is weird and wonderful, just what you expect from the Children Collide frontman.
Tumbleweed – Like a Night Owl
It’s been over a decade since we heard any new music from Wollongong’s finest long-hairs Tumbleweed. They’ve come back in style though, with an animation for their second single ‘Like a Night Owl’.
MGMT – Cool Song No. 2
The new clip from MGMT lives up to its name, involving a cult that seems to turn people into plants. That’s what we took from it, anyway – we’ll let you make up your own mind!
Fka twigs – Papi Pacify
Hyped-up London singer Fka twigs gets a bit sensual in her new video for slow-jam ‘Papi Pacify’.
