Audio Vision: The Haunting of Lianne La Havas
Monday, October 17, 2011
Already on my radar, Lianne La Havas has released the video for her song, "No Room For Doubt" off of her debut EP, Lost & Found and it's a beaut. Blues singer, Willy Mason, joins her as they play out as departed lovers of a different kind, with Mason's 'spirit' haunting La Havas' present space---a plot that is just in time for the 'spooky season'. It sort of reminds me of a Brontë Sisters novel (I'm such a junkie for Jane Eyre), where the plot lines of distant lovers and eerie settings blend with the romance. The contrast of their voices is really wonderful on this and adds to the charm that plays out on screen. Well worth a watch or two.
