Alex Cameron’s “Candy May” takes a tour of Las Vegas.

If you follow The Killers on social media, you might have noticed the group spending a lot of time with new Australian pal Alex Cameron. The indie-noir crooner released his debut LP Jumping the Shark last year on Secretly Canadian and is currently gearing up to release upcoming album Forced Witness. He also recently spent a few weeks in Las Vegas, hiking and hanging with Killers frontman Brandon Flowers and filming the video for new single “Candy May.” The clip features Cameron traipsing around familiar Downtown spots like the El Cortez, dancing in motel parking lots and getting fresh with—we can only assume—the elusive Candy May.

Speaking of music videos, Vegas indie-folk rockers All-Night Visitors released their latest for “Animal Mind” off recent EP People Places Things. Directed by Ryen McPherson, the video portrays a down-on-her-luck woman who lives on the roof of a casino and spends her days wandering the streets of Vegas.

In addition to releasing their new EP, Troubled Minds, SquidHat Records punks The Quitters are also featured on the label’s recent compilations Desert Rats With Baseball Bats Vol. 3 and Fresh Ink Vol. 6. Head to squidhat.bandcamp.com to hear the latest from The Quitters and their SquidHat labelmates.

Also, Local soul singer and songwriter Brittany Rose drops a new EP, Homegirl, at Vinyl on July 28 with additional performances by Halsey Harkins and The Noir Movement.
