Zombie - Natalia Kills, Music Video

I'm loving this video by new artist from Cherrytree Records/Interscope Records, Natalia Kills. I first got introduced to her by Swebb, so thank you! This video got released on 15th March 2010 on Vevo (Youtube), and I'm surprised it hasn't gotten at least a 100,000 views yet seeing that this video is awesome!
Watch it here now!

I've listened to this non-stop as it's catchy, has a edgy grinding beat and bass and the lyrics are great. Gotta love zombies! Also this video is amazing. I love the colour theme of red, black and grey, the graphics, layers of moving images and Natalia. It's sexy, suspenseful, macabre, and delves into people's darkest dreams. Natalia says it pays homage to the 1920's classic horror movies. Also this video is like 'New art house' style with the trendy typographic images, high contrast and the multiple exposures. The distinctive colour theme reminds me of work by El Lissitzky and Barbara Kruger. It also reminds me of a photographic darkroom where the only light it blood red.

The first two verses of the song: The lyrics go really well with the video story and manages capture that creepy atmosphere.

Im in love with a zombie.
Can't keep his hands off me.
I think hes looking at me,
But hes looking right through me...

You think you're so cool boy,
Blood rushin through my veins now.
Do you want me for my body?
Do you want me for my brain?

This video also gave me inspiration for this photo I took and edited :)
