FRINGE MUSIC FIX TV ventures to the furthest reaches of the alternative pop multi-verse in search of the most intriguing and imaginative multi-sensory musical accompaniments released weekly. We are thrilled to present to you our selections for the five best music videos released the week of June 5th to June 11th, 2022.
"Hollywood Forever Cemetery"
Shaking Hands With Elvis
Director: Jocelyn & Dawn
“It’s also about how people think being famous will fix them – only others get more vicious and critical the less they see someone as a person. I’m very drawn to finding the human in people who have been dehumanised.” - Allison Ponthier
"Pressure Makes Diamonds"
NN Music Limited/Cooking Vinyl Limited
Directors: Wolf James
"I wrote "Pressure Makes Diamonds" about trying to navigate my way through the societal pressures I started to feel as a woman in my mid-twenties. Making this album was a completely different experience to anything I’ve made before, although a lot of the music was created remotely, I feel that I’ve processed so much and learnt a lot about the relationships in my life during the last few years. I wanted to capture all types of love in their raw forms, whether it be romantic, heartbreak, friendship, coming of age, familial or self love." - Nina Nesbitt
"Come Around (Sunny Day)"
Chess Club Records
Director: Vasilisa Forbes
“‘Come Around (Sunny Day)’ is a 90s style summer tune I wrote around looped guitars and breakbeat samples. I wanted to create a tune with an upbeat vibe but with the lyrics keeping to a more anxious undertone. It’s about struggling to say what you mean when someone won’t hear you out – something I definitely relate to!” - Pixey
