Season 10 of the Bongo Boy Rock n Roll TV Series is going strong, already on Episode 3 for this year. If you’re not familiar with the program, this show features the music videos of talented indie artists from across the globe across a wide variety of genres. If you consider yourself an indie music fan, this is a must-watch. Episode 3 features six talented underground musicians premiered on March 2nd in Portland, OR on Channel 29, but if you missed it, all the episodes are available to watch (and re-watch!) on Vimeo at any time.
Kicking off Episode 3 is singer-songwriter Annemarie Picerno with her soulful and important tune COLOR BLIND. This bluesy ballad is full of fire and passion, and the artistic costuming in the video juxtaposed with intense imagery gives power to the important question – can society ever become colorblind?
The Dead Daisies switch gears into full-blown hard rock. The clear and distinct melodic parts in Holy Ground (Shake The Memory) elevate this group above many of their peers – and it’s as well performed as it is written. The stunning video effects take this from a standard performance video and make it a piece of art with a definitively cutting edge.
The genuine, gentle sounds of Emily Edrosa enter in stark contrast to the previous track, but it’s a welcome shift. Her voice is authentic and endearing in She Agreed, and the song is decidedly soft pop, heavy with meaning, but the video is particularly remarkable – with stunning and dramatic cinematography worthy of the silver screen. This is followed by Red Headed Lover from Florida-based artist Meresha, and the videography just keeps on getting better in this episode. A minimalistic and futuristic shoot with a heavy focus on dance, it’s the perfect complement to this modern, bright, and nuanced pop tune.
Robyn McCorquodale has a great classic pop sound on We Fly Together or We Don’t Fly at All. This uplifting song is relatable to so many right now as we fight through the end of this global pandemic – and this song’s hook has never been more true. It’s a fitting and inspirational tribute to those who helped to get us through this difficult year.
Closing out this latest episode is Jersey City band America’s Sweetheart. Their track Face to Face has a solid and mellow indie-rock sound, complemented by an incredibly well-produced animated music video. Both the song and video work wonderfully in tandem to illustrate some of the strange and unusual aspects of the world’s new normal.
We’ve been given another strong showing of impressive indie talent on this episode of the Bongo Boy Rock n Roll TV Series. The artistry these musicians and videographers are bringing to the table with these music videos only seems to improve week after week (and you can get details on how to submit your own music video for an upcoming episode below). No matter what genres you’re into, we’re sure there’s an up-and-coming artist in every episode that will end up in your regular music rotation.
