Go On A Romantic and Sweet Gay First Date With Music Video 'The Thing I Didn't Know' - WATCH

Music1

To promote his new book, The Thing I Didn't Know, author Brent Hartinger had a novel idea to build interest in his latest work: create a song and music video inspired by the book. With the help of musician Brett Avery and filmmaker Jeremy Ward, Hartinger set off on his journey.

Towleroad readers may recall Hartinger's previous effort, The Geography Club, which was adapted into a feature film. The Thing I Didn't Know continues to follow that book's protagonist Russel Middlebrook as he matures into adulthood:

"Russel Middlebrook is twenty-three years old, gay, and living in trendy Seattle, but life isn’t keeping up with the hype. Most of his friends have a direction in life—either ruthlessly pursuing their careers or passionately embracing their own aimlessness. But Russel is stuck in place. All he knows is that crappy jobs, horrible dates, and pointless hook-ups just aren’t cutting it anymore."

When turned into a song and music video, the end result is romantic and endearing. The video stars Hans Iverson as Russel and Randall Brammer as his beau, Felicks.

Catch a case of the awws, AFTER THE JUMP...

Pinkshinyultrablast: Everything Else Matters

PSUB-7aNamed after a 2002 Astrobite album, St Petersburg, Russia-based shoegaze outfit Pinkshinyultrablast are everything that you would expect of a band that’s been charged with spearheading the revival of a genre.

Pulsating and shimmering with the best of 1990s shoegaze acts, Pinkshinyultrablast have been compared to Lush, Ride and my bloody valentine among others.

A love at first listen affair for fans of 90s noise pop, Pinkshinyultrablast are happy to court comparisons with the likes of the Cocteau Twins, especially given the washed-out fuzziness of the Liz Fraser-esque vocals.

However, the Russian quartet say they are eager to push the electronic side of their sound, citing electronica, modern classical and krautrock among their influences.

Choreographer Bobby Newberry's ‘Flight From Paris’ Stars High-Heel Dance Expert Yanis Marshall: MUSIC VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 12.34.40 PM

Choreographer and singer Bobby Newberry released a new music video for his single Flight From Paris exclusively on out.com featuring high-heeled dance prodigy Yanis Marshall known for his sultry, fierce high-heeled choreography. Newberry spoke with Out saying the video was shot at Beso Hollywood and that production was rather hectic.

Said Newberry:

"This video actually came together very quickly... I wrote "Flight From Paris" with Intyce two weeks before we shot the video—which is a super quick turn around. I worked with Yanis Marshall for one full day to create the choreography, and then we had two rehearsals with the dancers. The next day we shot the video it was definitely hectic."

Jonathan Burdine provided style for the video dressing Newberry in a black leather kilt and used pieces from Balmain, Céline, Dolce & Gabbana, Zara, Top Shop, vintage pieces and Burdine originals. Newberry tells out that he met Marshall in Paris five years ago when the high-heeled aficionado attended a workshop Newberry hosted. Newborn spoke about his relationship with Marshall and the choreography in the video.

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 12.35.09 PMSaid Newberry:

"He's been a supporter of mine from the beginning, and I think he's so talented and such an awesome person. We've been planning on working together on something for a while now and this ended up just coming together so perfectly.

"I wore boots in the video, which were actually not that comfortable, LOL (sic). Yanis was in heels the entire day, naturally. I have danced in heels many times. It's definitely fun—but not my steez."

Here's a Gay Italian Love Story to Awaken Your Inner Romeo: MUSIC VIDEO

Estate

Italian independent filmmaker and Towleroad reader Roberto Laureri sends along a short film he shot set to the Italian classic "Estate" by Bruno Martino, which has become an internationally-known jazz standard (some may know the performance done by João Gilberto).

The track is about the memories of a lost love, and many of us have been there, though the clip may have you entertaining thoughts of running off to Europe to find one of your own.

Writes Laureri to Towleroad: "I shot this video in Italy to express the simplicity about love, how it's the same for every one."

Watch the gorgeous video, AFTER THE JUMP...
