We’ve been waiting a long time for Cocknbullkid (she’s dropped the “the”), aka Anita Blay, to pull her finger out and get us some new material. To be fair, she took the rather bold decision to scrap a lot of her old stuff in favour of a less electropop sound and so far so good. This is the video for her new single, One Eye Closed, due November 8th, and it’s pretty bloody amazing:
The video was directed by Jamie Thraves whose work includes stuff for Coldplay, Razorlight and that ‘Just’ video for Radiohead.
Now, you may want to sing along with ‘One Eye Closed’. We do. So, you can either sing the real lyrics form here, or sing these ones “So pass me my bag, I’ve already palmed my bleeding heart off by your flowers and I’m heading back so keep one eye closed but one eye down the loo”. Lovely.
