David Dallas takes the All Blacks to New York in his new video.

The Kiwi rapper takes in the sights and sounds of the city that never sleeps, rapping in Central Park, checking out the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building while wearing the official jersey of the Rugby World Cup-winning All Blacks team.

It all features in Start Lookin Around, the latest single from the Papatoetoe hip-hop star who released his latest album The Rose Tint for free download earlier this year.

It was a controversial move but seems to have been a successful one, with more than 15,000 downloads since its release in May.

A bonus version of The Rose Tint featuring four extra songs is released in November.

Check out the video for Start Lookin Round:

The four members of Coldplay get surprisingly goofy in their new clip, donning animal costumes for their upbeat new single Paradise.

Front man Chris Martin even rides a unicycle while dressed as an elephant.

Paradise is from the band's new album Mylo Xyloto, due out on Thursday.

Check out the video for Paradise:

Also playing dress-ups is all-girl supergroup Wild Flags in their new video Electric Band.

Fronted by Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein, Electric Band sees the band playing baseball against a team of hairy wolves.

Watch your back - those wolves throw a mean curve ball.

Gin Wigmore is in a typically raunchy mood on her new single Black Sheep, a song that includes a rather suggestive chorus probably unsuitable for little ears at home.

The tone is hardly surprising though - after all, the Kiwi singer turned up to last year's music awards wearing lingerie, and little else.

Black Sheep is from Wigmore's second album, Gravel & Wine, due out on November 7.

Finally, Florence Welch is back with an epic new single called Shake It Up, from the album Ceremonials due out on October 31.

The Laneway star is known for her towering set of lungs and she doesn't disappoint here.
