This new video, by Scottish singer/songwriter Paolo Nutini is fantastic. The song feels very similar to what I love about DJ Shadow, or U.N.K.L.E. It blends sampled storytelling, powerful horns, piano, drums, and Nutini’s voice, raspy and intense. The drug-addicted visuals push it all over the top, a masterpiece of the artform.
“Iron Sky” is from Nutini’s third full-length, Caustic Love, which came out back in April. I haven’t yet heard it, but now I want to do nothing else until I’ve heard every minute of it.
