Britta Phillips has shared a new video for "Million Dollar Doll" and announced a run of tour dates supporting Teenage Fanclub. The song is from Britta's first solo album, Luck Or Magic, released last year. Embed code is below.
Alec Coiro directed the video, which Britta describes as "Blade Runner meets Noir." Coiro has written seven musicals, created the movie "Fashion Party" which premiered at the Tribeca Grand Hotel and directed music videos for Son Little,The Chapin Sisters, andRebecca Schiffman. He offered insight into "Millon Dollar Doll," saying,
"'Million Dollar Doll' weaves a very compelling story. For the video, we wanted to stay true to the song's narrative, but not retell it too literally. We stuck with the song's theme of following and being followed, and added to that ... being under the constant gaze of digital surveillance. We also added an expression of the impulse to resist that gaze."
The album, Luck or Magic, was released on Double Feature Records in April 2016 and earned widespread, critical acclaim.
“Gorgeous from beginning to end, Luck or Magic is evenly split between love and lust…distilling a kind of naïve, sad-eyed beauty with a life-affirming glow” - MOJO
“Beautiful, swoonsome debut by Luna lifer” - UNCUT
“As seasoned and savvy as songwriters come… her debut delivers a playful, seductive, lush, and atmospheric set of originals and cover songs comprised of building melodies that draw from a wide array of influences. Every song showcases Phillips' gorgeous, extraordinary voice. Magic is a stunner, just like she is.”
“…the kind of album destined to reveal new treasures and reveries galore upon repeated listens. Contrary to the album’s title, the excellence of Phillips’ debut derives neither from luck nor magic, but rather from her proven penchant for crafting songs that are nothing short of sublime.” - ALBUMISM’s “30 Best Albums of 2016”
“Her voice aches like Lana Del Rey over a candy floss blanket of synths… You hope Phillips doesn’t leave it so long for another solo sojourn.” - CLASSIC POP
Britta will play a solo set on February 18 to open for her band, Luna. Following, she will be joined by Dean Wareham for a run of tour dates supporting Teenage Fanclub.
