Findlay: Electric Bones

Earlier this year, 24-year-old Manchester native Natalie Rose Findlay aka Findlay dropped her debut EP 'Electric Bones' in the UK and continental Europe; it has yet to be released in the U.S.

In February a video was published to accompany the fantastic title track (also available as a single). Directed by Sasha Rainbow, the clip so happens to have been filmed on the streets of Paris. Although containing some slightly seedy elements, including a super creepy dude reaching out for Findlay, it also brilliantly captures the vibrant nightlife of the city.

On November 13, people were out enjoying themselves; among them were hundreds of music fans attending a concert who in a surreal, hellish moment in time fell victim to blind rage.  It is normal to want to retreat into fear and submission. It has been said by many already and is often stated post-terror; nevertheless, sometimes a cliche hits it on the nail: the best way to honor the innocent dead and injured is to continue living your life to the fullest.

The tragic news from Paris has a particular relevance for me: as a blogger since 2008, I am always encouraging my readers to go out and see amazing artists/bands who through their music make this a better world. I hope that you will all continue to attend shows and thereby help pay tribute to those who decided to spend a night out on the town with friends and/or their sweetie.

Findlay is currently touring Germany where she has ten shows lined up, starting tonight Tuesday in Heidelberg and finishing in Hannover December 7.
