The Dears have just released a new video for “I Used To Pray For The Heavens To Fall,” a track appearing on upcoming album Times Infinity Volume One. The Dears did something really interesting with this one, blending traditional old-school music videos with the newer trend of lyric videos.

Check it out below.
Dioni has just issued a new video for “Flirting With Reality,” a track that appears on her self-titled EP, released earlier this summer. The clip works beautifully with the song’s title, as it shows the juxtaposition of Dioni’s reality through shots of her happily walking on the beach with her dog while also revealing images of riots and animal cruelty. Dioni herself has said of the song, “It was intended to be an ode to the crisis. It is pitched at a number of levels: Upon listening, ‘Flirting With Reality’ as a lighthearted tune and invokes an overall fun vibe, but there is much more to it.” The “Flirting With Reality” video captures Dioni’s sentiments perfectly. Check it out below.
