Throughout the video for Nathaniel Sutton‘s “Serious Crime”, I anticipated a twist or a shock. It seemed inevitable, but it never really came. That’s OK, though, as Sutton’s music and the accompanying video go quite well together. Although it’s initially odd, as the characters consist of a panda hand puppet (who acts as Sutton himself, singing the song), and a stuffed bear.
Sutton’s music blurs the occasionally thin line between pop and rock, adding in electro-pop elements and dark vocals. His latest LP, Starlite, is out now late this month on Oak Apple Records.
