El May is the nom de plume of LA-based Australian musician Lara Meyerratken. The concept for the "I Played a Role" video, directed by Yaara Sumeruk, was to approach strangers in New York and have them listen to the song and dance to it, in the street, with Lara. The dreamy slow-motion results are engaging, enigmatic and utterly charming.
"Food For The Beast" has established itself as a fan favourite both live and as a highlight on her debut solo album, Animal Heart. The video was made in Sweden and directed by Swedish director Tomas Melinder.
"The video for 'Food For The Beast' was made by these amazing people at Top Dollar in my home town Malmo. A great example of how creativity and imagination can't be bought", espouses Nina.
Animal Heart is out now on Lojinx CD, LP & digital.
Hannah creates melancholic and playful pop, crafted with a love for the singer/songwriter tradition and a fascination with electronic sounds and samples.
