Video: Goldfrapp: "A & E"

Last week we posted the first single from Goldfrapp's soon-to-be-released Seventh Tree, "A & E", a shift toward mellow acoustic strums from the UK electronic group. Dougal Wilson, the director behind Bat for Lashes' wonderfully creepy "What's a Girl to Do" video (one of Pitchfork's Top 50 Music Videos of 2007), goes back into the woods with Alison Goldfrapp in his clip for the song. Resplendent in a flowing white dress, Goldfrapp sings from a bed of leaves, while a troupe of leaf-men dance around-- hey, trees are people, too-- and bow down to her as some kind of sylvan goddess. When the song reaches its sighing bridge, the wind blows, the day turns to night, and a couple of woodland critters arrive to check out the action. The video is a good fit for Goldfrapp's bright, folksy turn here, and it comes with a twist ending that warms this caffeine junkie's heart. (via Blender)
