Popdose Premieres Official Music Video for A Fragile Tomorrow's "Make Me Over (Noddy Holder)"
Popdose.com has just debuted the stellar new video of AFT's first single, "Make Me Over (Noddy Holder)", directed by Max Werkmeister. Tongue-in-cheek as always, the band explores the constructs of rock 'n roll image-making with their signature fearlessness and creativity. Filmed in their childhood community theater, New Rose Theater in Walden, NY, the video chronicles the bands fictionalized - and apparently conflicted - journey from "generic rock band" to their current, glam-actualized selves. Check out the video here, and see why Popdose.com raves: "wonderful...These guys are something special.".

PopMatters Video Premiere: K's Choice "Perfect Scar"
K's Choice have premiered their slick and beautiful music video for "Perfect Scar" on PopMatters. The video was shot & directed by Gert Bettens (guitarist) and features his adorable daughter, Aiko. Here's what he had to say about the video: "I wanted to make [the video] myself, so I bought a decent camera and went for it. Photography is something I’m really into, so decided to go from there, without a real storyboard to begin with. I started shooting a lot of moving pictures I considered to be aesthetically pleasing, and was fortunate to have my daughter Aiko available at all times to get the footage I wanted. I hope somehow the video radiates joy and the message we wanted to put in the song."
