London's Manos Daughter have unveiled an artistically choreographed video for their new track entitled 'What's A Girl Supposed To Do'. The song features on their upcoming EP 'Shiver' which is due out on August 11th 2014 through Smart & Shiver Records.
The video opens with the image of a ballet dancer lying crumpled on the floor amid a scattering of some white powdery substance. We then see black and white clips of two sad looking people; one is a little girl being shunned by her peers and the other is a woman taking refuge in a rehearsal studio. Both girls are highly talented ballet artists which seems to, in the end, be what makes them finally stand out. The beautiful dancing and melancholy mood of the visual works stunningly with the eerie synths and the soulful but understated vocals, that all link together to create a crescendo into an uplifting chorus.
Manos Daughter; who are vocalist Sarah Carter, synth player Matthias Garrick and drummer Dan See; have been garnering much attention since the release of their debut EP 'Smart'. New release 'Shiver' is bound to cement them as a uniquely soulful group with incredible lyrical prowess.
