Friday Night Videos - Female-Led Friday

In honor of The Other Festival, an inaugural celebration of female artists, thinkers, and creators, we present a slate of female-fronted Friday Night Videos.

First up we have "Watching the Waiting" from Charm City's own Wye Oak, who dropped the surprise album Tween this week (on Merge Records). For a band known for making definitive stylistic demarcations between albums, this is less a next evolutionary step in their sound than a collation of previously unreleased tracks that didn't fit neatly into their previous work. Tween nonetheless includes standout tracks like this one. You can catch them on June 22nd at Rock & Roll Hotel.

Next up we have "On My Way", the latest video from indie dance-pop duo Cardiknox. Vocalist Lonnie Angle and musician Thomas Dutton parlayed the success of their independently-released singles into Portrait, their Warner Brothers debut. The synth and choreography-heavy video for this track are the realization of their 80s-tinged pop vision. You can catch them at Rock & Roll Hotel on July 5th.

Finally, we have "Staring At The Sun", the latest single from English electro-pop artist Little Boots. Less a proper video than a visual advertisement for the singer's other project, the single is the first from Little Boots' forthcoming EP Afterhours. In addition to the EP, which drops June 17th on her own On Repeat Records,  Little Boots is collaborating with London startup Studio Amplify on an interactive music app called NOIZ that will allow fans to remix and mashup tunes and share them socially.
