Not too often does a piece of music over 2.5 minutes long capture my wavering attention to such an all encompassing degree. When it comes to musical motion pictures the dulce desperation of Stuart Murdoch’s ‘God Help The Girl’ sits more comfortably amongst my cochlea crushes with it’s homage to 60’s girl-groups and Pop friendly production.

Taken from The Knifes operatic take on the ‘Origin of The Species’ this could not be more detached from Catherine Ireton’s cool vocal delivery and everyday subject matter.
It is other worldly and haunting whilst retaining The Knifes trademark weird melodic percussion and vocal distortion, elevating it in to epic proportions. Truly engaging and original it engraves a haunting feeling well after its eleven minutes have drawn to a close.
