Indie-pop duo The Submarines are hard at work on their third album, but in the meantime, the band has revealed a brand new video for the psychedelic-classical track “Submarine Symphonika” off of their sophomore album Honeysuckle Weeks. (Fun fact: If the song sounds familiar, that’s because you have probably heard it in the new iPhone 3G S TV commercial currently airing!)
A message from The Submarines about their new video:
“We're thrilled to say that our new video for “Submarine Symphonika” is here!! It was a real labor of love from the amazing Josh Forbes, who tirelessly directed it (much of the shooting happened in the wee hours of the morning), and who put together an awesomely talented crew of set builders and artists to make a magical little world filled with singing Russian Dolls, twinkling stars, a child dinosaur orchestra and more come to life. We loved inhabiting this strange place and invite you to come check it out.”
Stay tuned for more news from The Submarines in the New Year, including information on their third album!

This past Sunday, November 22, the American public voted Gloriana as the Breakthrough Artist of 2009 at the American Music Awards. Their self-titled debut entered the Billboard Top 200 at #3 in early August, following the strength of their smash single, "Wild At Heart." The Nettwerk connection? Producer Management client Matt Serletic developed, co-wrote and produced the entire debut album, and even signed the group to his own Emblem Records.
Matt Serletic is a Grammy Award-winning producer and writer whose credits include the creation of such enduring classics of pop music as Carlos Santana’s “Smooth,” Rob Thomas’ “Lonely No More,” matchbox twenty’s “Push” and Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing.”
Debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, Bon Jovi's The Circle, which includes the hit single "We Weren't Born To Follow," gives Nettwerk client and Grammy-winning mixer Bob Clearmountain another #1 album to add to his impressive discography. Clearmountain has enjoyed success before with Bon Jovi, having mixed the albums These Days and Bounce, as well as the classic single "Always."
