Blue Healer Goes to the Zoo in their Music Video for Luminescent Eyes

Dropping their official first music video, Blue Healer throws out a heater that feels so right to listen to on a warm summer day filled with swimming and partying with friends. They call their music, “pop with teeth,” meaning a mash of pop with a garage rock sound, and Blue Healer certainly delivers the bite with the video in question, which is for their track “Luminescent Eyes.”

Made up of members David Beck (bass, guitar and vocals), Bryan Mammel (keys and vocals) and Dees Stribling (drums and vocals), the trio’s chemistry is unquestionable, with a flawless playing style that meshes just so well and highlights the strengths that each brings to the table. Blue Healer feels fresh where other bands can seem like reheated leftovers, and they carry a sound similar to Local Natives infused with influences of Bob Dylan's songwriting style, but taking that sound past the limits set by other pop artists.

Blue Healer shows their fun side and brings the raw energy from their live shows to the “Luminescent Eyes” music video, which they shot in a VHS-style fashion at the San Antonio Zoo. They start the song by laying down shimmering guitar chords that then pair with an injection of sun-bleached synth, both of which together set the tone of a song that rolls with a slow melodic pace. Tranquil vocals meld with the instruments like two clouds colliding, and overall it makes for a refreshing song to listen to when you want to relax and let the sunshine wash over you. The lo-fi video of the band exploring the zoo on just that kind of sunny day works well to give you a sense of chilled out good times, and it makes a nice match for the song's summer vibe.

Watch the video below to get in on all the fun you’ve been missing out on, and keep your eyes peeled for their first album, releasing sometime this summer. It’s sure to be one of the records you’ll want on repeat for the hot days ahead.

Saturday Night Sounds: Rugby - "Bag of Bones"

Throwing another new track your way for our Saturday Night Sounds. Experimental pop group Rugby have just debuted a new video for their track "Bag of Bones," which is the second to come off their upcoming summer release, Worldly Wise.

The black and white beach set video is an endearingly romantic face to the track, which at times is intimately quiet and at other times, barrel rolls at you with full force. "Bag of Bones," both as a song and as a music video, was written, recorded, edited and directed by Rugby themselves, so the personal aspect is fully prevalent. The track takes a more acute stance than the first release off the album, called "Breakfast Crew."

Look out for Wordly Wise due out this Summer, and until then, dig into this rollercoaster track below.

Heart Harbor EP Release Show at Tin Angel April 23

Led by singer-songwriter Kerry Hallett, Heart Harbor play a show in the intimate setting of Tin Angel to commemorate the release of their new EP Tender Trap. The album exudes an innate heart-rending closeness that is set loose by tightly spun folk-pop instrumentation. With an ability to peel back to the pit lyrically and then coat those wrestling, dreamy emotions with delicately layered harmony and larger encompassing production, Heart Harbor paints a broader, detailed picture. The dusty, road-worn, aching folk of Julia Rainer is tucked between tonight headliner and New England multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter Audrey Ryan. Tin Angel, 20 S. 2nd St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
