Marlon Williams - Vampire Again (Official Video)
Marlon Williams is a singer and guitarist from New Zealand of Maori descent who showed in his debut album last year that he was a big fan of early rock’n’roll, country, and rockabilly. He’s just released his first new song since that album, a catchy, witty number called “Vampire Again.” Even better, he’s released a fun, Nosferatu-themed video to go with it, which Williams himself directed. His vampire, a kind of pathetic loner, loves cats and does not possess quite the superhuman strength you might have expected. Watch till the end to see what I mean. And along the way, enjoy what Williams describes as “my own demented tale of New Age self-affirmation.” Marlon Williams plays Rough Trade in Brooklyn on October 30, just missing Halloween.
