We have something special for you today… a new music video by The Visual for their track ‘Open Your Eyes’, shot by filmmaker Mateo Vega in Antwerp. Head over to The Daily Indie, who premiered it (click here) for a first glance, and a read about what’s been going on in songwriter Anna’s mind during the coming into being of their album.
‘Melancholisch en poëtisch zijn maar enkele woorden die we maar wat graag associëren met de Amsterdamse band. De videoclip bij Open Your Eyes neemt ons mee naar een gedachtenwereld: rustig en meeslepend. De hele clip bestaat uit zwart-wit beelden, op één kleur na: rood. De indringende, mysterieuze kleur wist de wereld van The Visual binnen te sluipen en met resultaat. Je vraagt je bij momenten af waar je naar kijkt, maar gelukkig is er de muziek om je hand vast te houden en je tot het einde te begeleiden.’
Debut album ‘Moments of Being’ will be out on streaming on March 29th, it’ll also be available on beautiful 12” vinyl and CD. We’ll celebrate during the release show at Bitterzoet (presented by Paradiso). Tickets can be found here. Facebook event here.

Head over to Gigwise to get a first look at the video for ‘Figure’, The Visual’s recently released single. Thanks to Andy Hill for the kind words! ❤️
“Anna van Rij’s voice, cool and evanescent as the morning dew, veers between melancholy lethargy and emotionally wrought upper-register bends. Partner in crime Timon Persoon does his ‘voodoo soundman’ bit on keys, crafting an proper three-dimensional sound landscape at the tender locus of soundtrack and songwriting.”
The Visual have just released a beautiful, minimalistic live video for their upcoming single ‘Figure’, which will be out on streaming soon, and on their forthcoming debut album ‘Moments Of Being’. The video was recorded in their native Amsterdam, in collaboration with their friend and camera handler Thomas Paschenegger.
The Hazzah released their new video for ‘I’m Your Man’ today! It was produced by Mateo Vega and premiered over at the Daily Indie, together with an interview (in Dutch), that you can read here. It was also featured on Booooooom.com, ‘an authoritative voice in the new contemporary arts scene, highlighting emerging talents from around the world’.
Pitou has a new video out! DIY was kind enough to give it the premiere, read the article here. The video was produced by our friends from Glitterstudio.
Amsterdam-born singer Pitou has released her video for new single ‘Give Me A Glass’, which we’re premiering here on DIY. Having been involved in music from an early age, Pitou released her first EP in 2016 whilst at the Conservatoire of Amsterdam and has recently released her mini-album ‘I Fall Asleep So Fast’ via Mink Records, which features the new single. ‘Give Me A Glass’ is a slow-moving, emotive piece of music which sees Pitou’s lovely vocals intertwined with a simple, yet effective acoustic instrumental.
