Cat Power’s beautifully shot video for new single Manhattan unsurprisingly set in Manhattan…

We’re used to seeing the music video treated as a canvas for creative experiment. With clever visual tricks, left-field concepts and weird storylines par for the course now, I felt Cat Power’s simple new video for Manhattan was worthy of note. Set (aptly) in Manhattan we see Cat hanging out, goofing around on the subway and singing from out of a sunroof (I’m guessing) through one of America’s most recognisable landscapes without a surprise in sight. A music video for the purists, thanks Greg Hunt.
