Cat Power has never been shy of living up to her 'eccentric' tag, but the self directed video to her new single Cherokee is, simply put, bewildering. The clip- which you can watch below- is notable for featuring Cat- real name Chan Marshall- in an apocalyptic desert scenario, battling some crap looking zombies, armed with a crapper looking plastic silver gun that fires glowing plastic death triangles. Did we mention that none of these things are hinted at in the lyrics to Cherokee? Oh, well: They're not.
Cherokee is taken from Marshall's latest album Sun, available now. To support the album she is playing a one off UK headliner show- her first ion four years- at London's Roundhouse on December 12th. Tickets details on her website - www.catpowermusic.com
