A Week in Video... Wakefield’s indie rockers The Cribs release ‘Leather Jacket Love Song,’ a nostalgic look back at their last decade of existence as a band. The video inter-splices archive footage of one of the brothers’ early gigs at Ossett Town Hall in Yorkshire, with the Cribs circa 2013 observing their younger selves. The Cribs’ sounds hasn’t altered a great deal over time, but their popularity seems to show no signs of wavering; their commitment to their DIY roots remains strong and even with Ryan breaking out with his new band Exclamation Pony, we reckon there’s a few years left in The Cribs yet.
Palma Violets have been causing a stir, with their accessible, psych-tinged garage rock. The video for ‘Step Up For The Cool Cats’ is a vaguely trippy, home-video style shoot; footage of the band playing is mixed with footage of them driving around in a car together, looking like it’s being played back on an old TV set. The band have gained a lot of attention since playing recent slots with London based Savages. It looks like 2013 could well be their year.
We’re still not sure how Danes 'The White Album' managed to get their moniker past the Bad Band Names committee, but there we go. The group are becoming known for their sweeping, melodic rock – as well, obviously, for deciding to call themselves directly after a Beatles album - and today they revealed the new video for their track ‘Seasons End’. Have a look at it below.
The song’s called ‘Seasons End’ plural, but there’s only one time of the year that this is set in; a deepest darkest Scandinavian winter. In it, one of the band is walking around the seemingly shut theme park at night time, possibly in reminiscence of when it was open. There flashback shots to a bright colourful time when the stalls were open and he could buy popcorn, throw balls at objects to win prizes and generally lark about.

Denmark folk outfit The White Album can now present to you the melancholy video to their wintry track 'Seasons End' which has been taken from their debut six-track EP 'Conquistador' released in September 2012 through Popular Recordings/Tri-Tone.
It's a particularly well designed and gripping video featuring actors Henrik Jongdahl and Dines Vesterkaer Slavensky as the man and the boy respectively. Produced by one of the band members Claus Arvad and his filmmaker friends Jakob Nimb Jensen and Thomas Lund, the video features a man walking through a snow covered deserted amusement park and imagining the lights all being on and even buying popcorn at a refreshment kiosk. He also keeps imagining the figure of a young boy playing at the park which is the Brakken amusement park near Copenhagen. The filming is all in slow motion suiting the down-tempo sombreness of the track. The haunting vocals and echoing guitar melody is truly enchanting to the ear and perfect for the wintry season.
The idea of the video was a deep mix of emotional contrast as Claus points out, 'There is a fantastic contrast in the warmth of the lights VS the cold and ghost-town like feel of the deserted, dark and snow covered amusement park.'
