Charlotte and Magon-Black Horses
When you write stuff about music, you get sent emails by bands hinting that you should explore their music. The first heartbreaking thing I learned about being sent demo's is almost none of them are terrible, however most of them a crushingly competent and samey. The video for Charlotte and Magon's Black Horses is quite different.
It's a journalistic challenge this. I've tried time and again to accurately describe it, the nearest I can get is Kate Bush if she read Plath rather than Bronte and a film which is Amelie as directed by Nick Cave. It's gentle, a little unsettling and dark as Guinness. But wholly unique. See what you think.
