Video: Charlotte Gainsbourg, “Terrible Angels”

Charlotte Gainsbourg is really good at walking with her head down, like the way you do when it’s misting out. It serves her well on the cover of her Beck-produced, two-song Terrible Angels EP and halfway through the title track’s Nathalie Canguilhem-directed video. Which isn’t to disparage her singing chops (or lithe dance abilities, which are fine display as well), but as evidence of Gainsbourg’s demure, perpetually down-beaten reserve that makes even her choreographed dance scenes always a little sad. The EP comes out September 6th, and a double-LP of live and unreleased material, entitled Stage Whisper, arrives this November.
