Surreal surgery in Lioness “You’re My Heart”

Here in the Culture Department, we’ve already declared the Lioness single “You’re My Heart” to be a summer party must-play. We were hoping the music video would teach us all the accompanying disco-shimmy moves; instead, it’s more of an open-heart surgery instructional. But don’t try this at home, unless you want surreally scary results. Directed by band member Jeff Scheven and inspired by German expressionism of the 1920s, the mini-movie plays like an opiate-induced trip through consciousness. Favourite part: roaring frontwoman Vanessa Fischer designed all the romantic, retro-futuristic costumes herself. We’d like to place an order for our own silver, hyper-shouldered dresses now, please.
