The Moulettes, “Devil of Mine”

The ambitious, online highly atmospheric video for “Devil of Mine” from The Moulettes self titled album resembles nothing less than a Baroque fairy tale “creepshow” and/or meandering  hallucinatory dream told through a “pioneering technique utilizing live action, stuff stop motion, and motion GFX”.

A twisty track that is at turns sinister, playful and cleverly, unexpectedly catchy – at 2:06, for example: the juxtaposition of Hannah Miller in a puritanically prim ruffled night dress and cap surrounded a ghoulishly jazzy, finger snapping beat crowd – this is a delightfully decadent, debauched, yet danceable “cacophony of sound”.  A real toe (bone) tapper!

Bonus!  Here is some sneaky backstage footage of the video.

    Soooooo catchy! I’m a little bit in love. Vocal harmonies and creepy violin, yum. Thank you so much for the recommendation – I can’t wait to check out the rest of their album.

    If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Melora Creager (ie: Rasputina) must be thrilled…

    I absolutely adore this video. I was fortunate enough to see them live in Brighton, and they were every bit as lovely and mesmerizing in person.
