Eugene McGuinness – “Heart Of Chrome”

You can’t get much more polished than Eugene McGuinness. “Heart Of Chrome” is the latest song from the British post-punker’s upcoming new album Chroma. We’ve previously covered “Fairlight” and the slightly more frantic “Godiva” and this song is more of the same, bouncing along with razor-like precision with not one note out of place. Liste… More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Godiva” Video

Eugene McGuinness is a Londoner whose strutting, self-assured postpunk has a sort of graphic-design precision to it. McGuinness just announced the impending release of his new album Chroma, which he calls “a direct, stripped-back guitar album” and which features “Fairlight,” the single he released last year. The ThirtyTwo-directed video for “Godiva,” the lean and efficient… More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Fairlight”

Last year, the dapper Brit Eugene McGuinness released Invitation To The Voyage, his sharp and slept-on debut album. He hasn’t announced plans for a follow-up or anything, but he has dropped a new song online, and it’s a significant departure. Specifically, the new “Fairlight” sounds like what might’ve happened if Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner… More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Sugarplum” Video

In the video for his new single “Sugarplum,” the terse and stylish Britpopper Eugene McGuinness surveys London from a skyscraper rooftop. The clip gets a whole lot of mileage from the sight of red balloons against a grey sky, and you can watch it below. More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Harlequinade” Video

Domino singer-songwriter Eugene McGuinness made his first impression back in 2007, with the entirely animated video for “Monsters Under The Bed.” He’s brought the focus more to himself, in the flesh, in the videos since, to the point that Tom branded him a “handsome British man” within the first six words of this post, which… More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Blue Jeans” (Lana Del Rey Cover) Video

The snappily-dressed British postpunker Eugene McGuinness has already shown a serious visual flair; we’ve posted his stark and striking videos for “Lion” and “Shotgun.” And for some reason, he’s chosen this moment to drop his cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans“; apparently, there’s some gas left in that tank. In the video, he strut… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

After last week’s avalanche of amazing videos, things slowed up a bit this week. Still, our top pick is an uncanny, impossible-to-forget piece of work, and there’s plenty of other good stuff further down the list. Check out our picks below. More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Shotgun” Video

Late last year, handsome British man Eugene McGuinness made an impression with his sharp, colorful video for “Lion.” Now McGuinness is back again with a video for his rockabilly-inflected jam “Shotgun,” with “Lion” directors Thirtytwo returning, and if anything it’s even more memorable than its predecessor. McGuinness spends the entire video looking cool and unflappable… More »

Eugene McGuinness – “Thunderbolt”

Brit rocker Eugene McGuinness recently posted a new song called “Thunderbolt,” another stylized rock groove like you might expect from the Domino-signed dude. It’ll cost you a Facebook like — McGuinness favors these these digital trades, you see– but other than that, it’s yours forever. Trailer down below if you need to be convinced. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The two highest-profile videos of the week were almost certainly Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and Coldplay’s “Paradise.” I didn’t put either video on this list. I didn’t leave them out because they’re pop videos; I’m absolutely happy to show love to a great pop video. But both of those videos seemed forced, in opposite directions. More »

Eugene McGuiness – “Lion”

The young British postpunker Eugene McGuinness has a new single called “Lion,” a ridiculously catchy single that marries feral yelps and baritone Bowie-isms to a bottom-heavy surfy guitar line. In the Thirtytwo-directed video, McGuiness sings and looks handsome while a quartet of dancers stalks him through an empty warehouse. The song is yours if you… More »

New Eugene McGuinness Video – “Moscow State Circus”

Eugene McGuinness earned his BTW bona fides last year on the back of the great, pseudo-spooky pop romp (and memorable cartoony clip) “Monsters Under The Bed.” The video wound up being a YouTube front pager, and the single wound up on the eight track mini-album The Early Learningn Of Eugene McGuinness. Still enamored with hi… More »

Artist To Watch: Eugene McGuinness

Our stumble upon rising UK singer-songwriter Eugene McGuinness was ass-backwards: tipped to the vid’s charms first, did our due diligence (to the extent possible) later. Though he’s officially released nothing yet, stuff’s on the way and he’s making waves (notably playing the Introducing stage at Glasto this weekend). The track that caught us is “Monster… More »
