Iraina Mancini - Cannonball
Updated: Apr 17
Even though I usually always tell people to listen to new music alone first, without any visuals, there are rare exceptions. The video for this banging single from Iraina Mancini is an absolute dream. Picture a 1960/70s version of Kill Bill crossed with those campy British spy shows like The Avengers, and you're most of the way there. Luckily, the song is just as impressive as the clip that comes with it. It's full of sweeping, intense, almost Spector-ish sounds and vocals that it's impossible not to get carried away by. One of the best things I've heard all year.
