Add your comment »

Charlotte Hatherley has a new solo project, Sylver Tongue, set to release her first EP 'Something Big' on November 5 via new label Dancing Coins (run by members of Cold Specks among others). We've got the exclusive premiere of the video for the EP's title track, the gloriously mechanical-sounding electro cut 'Something Big', below:

The video, directed by Red Red Rabbit, sees a diamond-encrusted Hatherley hurtling through a particularly kaleidoscopic version of space (probably further up than 24 miles - you hear that, Felix Baumgartner?).

Hatherley will be heading on tour this month with Bat For Lashes, for whom she's previously played as a touring musician. Here are the dates:

Glove-a-duck, that's bloody awful. The song is bad enough, but the video is incredibly embarrassing.
