Sticking with the theme of new music & cool clips that seems to be emerging lately I was keen to display this masterful new clip from Amanda Palmer. The ‘cabaret punk’ performer was in Australia back in march to record her latest record from which this track, Want it Back, was taken.
Palmer worked with Aussie director Jim Batt put the clip together which was helped along by the artistic strokes of local artist Curran. Check out the cheeky Cherry Ripe that makes a guest appearance as a knowing nod to Aussie location. Palmer writes on her blog: “…it tasted BAD. sort of marshy-chocy-cherry-icky. still way better than vegemite.”
The clip races along to the melody with text scrawling over her naked body, onto the sheets, her mobile and walls.
In a statement for the Guardian Palmer says: “I’m so comfortable being naked at this point that I almost forget … I’m also proud that that video has nudity, but it isn’t sexual or erotic … it’s using the body as a raw canvas, which I love.”
Theatre is Evil, the new album from Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra is out in September and owes its existence to the 25,000 fans who , between them, donated $1.2mil USD to the project. Combine this with Palmer’s jangling, electro-punk styled tunes and bare all performance and you have a record that is sure to go far.
