YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Mirage” by Ladytron
If Druid chic isn’t a “thing,” Ladytron’s video for “Mirage” is determined to make it one. It opens with a brief scene of Stonehenge (so overdone in music videos, amirite?) and moves to a beach with sexy druid women in Snuggie-like robes. Helen Marnie takes the role of enigmatic chieftainess, leading her devotées in some sort of deferential dance. I don’t know if I’m quite ready to join the cult, but the dreamy song and mysterious video do have a certain je ne sais quoi.
