Following the unveiling of her debut single ‘Coke & Mentos’ last month, Sydney singer-songwriter Tia Beale has just released her latest single ‘Do It Over’. It speaks lyrically of the devastating loss of a close friend of Tia’s to suicide. The haunting vocals throughout the track truly captivate the listener and transport them to the memories that TIA reflects on.
The sophisticated 20-year-old hails from Sydney’s Northern Beaches and studied at Sydney’s Australian Institute of Music (AIM), initially harbouring dreams of becoming an actor. Watch her unparalleled performance in the stunning video for ‘Do It Over’:
Like most of her music, ‘Do It Over’ is recorded in collaboration with music industry veteran Steve Clisby, who has played alongside everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Kool & The Gang and Chaka Khan. This soulful track definitely marks TIA as one to watch in 2020.
Performance art offers a unique introspective into the depths of human creativity. In terms of potential, most of us are blessed with an array of possibilities, but some are left with regret that these aren’t acted upon until it’s perceived that its too late. Berislav Sertić is a Croatian dancer, actor, model and singer has embarked to demonstrate these facets combined in his incredible video to the track ‘I Gave My Life’ – the first video in what his to be his Catharsis trilogy, which will the cover keystones of human existence – Life, Death, and Sex.
It was the emergence of a collaboration between himself with ex-Soul II Soul James Perri (aka Jimi Polo) – known for his work with David Guetta and Daft Punk, that has since laid the foundation for his signature sound that is laced heavily in 1980’s electro-pop. The artistic direction the pair have now taken has seen Berislav’s exemplary levels of creativity take form. It was after signing a record deal with a record deal with Croatia records in 2015 that the lavish theatrical style for his videos first emerged.
Already by the age of 9, Berislav had developed a love for dancing and attended the Tihana Škrinjarić school of dance, before a move to Austria saw his talent for the art develop further. Engaging in a pursuit of various disciplines saw him embark on numerous project with Croatian music artists as well as participating in theatrical productions such as Hair. Following an inherent determination to be the very best at everything he was involved with, he moved briefly to Los Angeles to attend the Sanford Meisner school of acting, which led to leading acting roles in TV series and commercials.
Electro-noir duo IOTAPHI have shared a Behind the Scenes clip for their music video ‘Kids of Chaos’. The Italy-via-Greece outfit have brought their dark-hued, cinematic soundscapes to life with a visual that sees athletes from Greece’s Down Syndrome Association throwing shapes in a derelict-looking gymnasium, shrouded in fog.
In the behind-the-scenes video, director Gregory Rentis says that the video was one of his most challenging projects. Speaking of the concept behind the visual, he says: “The initial point was to recreate sort of a Big Bang,” he explains, “all the girls are like stars or planets; they would disperse into our space and they sort of got together to create this planetary system which was basically a dance.”
