Crisp N' Fresh: Paloma Faith Goes 'Upside Down'

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Talk about a pop o' color! Paloma Faith is pumping out the videos and singles from her fantastic 2009 debut, Do You Want The Truth, Or Something Beautiful?, and the latest to get the single treatment is the quirky modern big band of "Upside Down". The video displays much of what Paloma is known for and that is 1940's Hollywood garb and lots of red lipstick. Something about the video seems a bit off, as it gets a bit tiresome and tedious towards the end, and kind of loses the spark of the opening. There is a nifty little homage (or maybe it's just me seeing things) to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo dance the Nicholas Brothers and Dorothy Dandridge did way back when in 1941, even complete with umbrellas.
