Canadian-songstress MELANIE? blesses us with a retro-tinged karaoke flick for new track “Yeah Yeah”.
Forget Stokey Karaoke, Canavans and Blues Kitchen, MELANIE?’s retro-tinged karaoke video will blow you and all of your friends’ singing clear out of the water, no matter how good you think you sound when drunk.
Her previous action-packed lyric video saw the Canadian songstress skydiving, horse-riding, rollercoasting, arcade racing and doing just about any other -ing you can think of. MELANIE? Explains the flick in more detail; “The song is about fighting through inner conflict to find your power after heartbreak,” she tells us.
The song is basically about finding freedom and inner-strength in a down-and-out moment, fit with a growling guitar line and bolstering vocal delivery. “The words “Yeah Yeah” are said by a woman who has found her confidence / Yeah Yeah, this didn’t break me / Yeah Yeah, I got this / Yeah Yeah, I don’t care anymore /Yeah Yeah, I can get through anything”.
The video she’s premiering today takes this concept lightyears further. MELANIE? plays an anarchic assassin dodging kicks, punches and swings from her foe. She fights her way a dimly lit warehouse, claiming back her strength one destroyed furnishing at a time. It’s equal parts Kill Bill, Charlie’s Angels, and Killing Eve – and if it’s any indication of the future, we can’t wait to see what’s next!
