Track of The Day #432: Woodpecker Wooliams – Crow

Oh no! Woodpecker Wooliams is no more! The musical project of Brighton’s Gemma Williams has been laid to rest, which is bad news given how much I loved the creak and whirr of the album. However, bang-not-whimper, so here is a swan-song in the form of one last brilliant Leonardo Machado directed video for ‘Crow’.

It starts with some underwear clad lovely, filmed with all MTV panache, stalking down a stylish hallway. But this ain’t no Robin Thicke, as we realise all is not as it seems and we are dealing with ‘themes’ and ‘internal dialogues’ (yes, I know I’ve overused the ‘quotation marks’). What do you do when you obey those self-help entreaties to love yourself, and it gets rough?

I’d better say – NSFW
