Man I wanna go to New York. In my head it exists as this fantasy world of infinite potential, a probably mis-informed vision constructed from watching too many films and 90s sitcoms. Still though, it’s definitely on the to do list…
Cat Power’s new video for her song ‘Manhattan’ sees her traversing the city streets on the top of some form of that lorry in some questionable hand-wear. Either that or she’s floating which would make this video even cooler. It accompanies a song that feels much like the city itself; it’s chilly and doesn’t go anywhere, but it doesn’t need to. It simply lets you take in its magnificence and the mystery of what is unexplored is far more engaging than taking you down every street. Although i’ve never been there so you be the judge.
Does New York actually sound like this? Comment!
