Amanda Blank + A Load Of Balloons = Charming Pop Video

Amanda Blank is a neat mix of Santigold and Peaches and a clear next in line contender for the High Priestess of Hipsters. Her debut album is just out though doesn't seem to be picking up the hype it has been expected too. For more on Blank, this post from Spherical Notions is worth a look.

The reason for this post is the new video for Blanks single "Might Like You Better". Its an unexpected gem, I love the song but was not expecting a video this striking or charming.

The balloons and the performance video parts are neat but effective and I love that half of the video consists of Blank just smiling and having the "I can't believe there are so many balloons in this video" face. We've all been there.

This is a great example of how to do a slick and eye popping video without having to go to town on effects or "plotlines". You just need to go... to the shops on effects and have some balloons.

Rather amazingly you can LEGALLY download FOR FREE this track and other Amanda Blank tracks/remixes here
