Soko haunting home video

I just can’t stop raving about this unsigned French pop duo singer that moves and fascinates me like few other vocalists. Exquisitely stark, this home movie shows the mysterious Soko  singing the devastating breakup/murder ballad “I’ll Kill Her.”

Dressed in a white sweater and black dress, she stares plaintively into a large mirror, the setting is an unfinished basement or maybe backstage at a small club. Soko's male counterpart sits with his back to her on a bench. He plays gorgeously sad minor chords on acoustic guitar. Soko closes the song by facing the camera and delivering a haunting threat.
