Music Video: Fever Ray - "If I Had A Heart"

Yes, we've been posting a lot of music from TV series, but that's just where we've been getting our best inspiration lately. History Channel's Vikings is a really good series, especially for someone with interests in Norse myth and history or early medieval history in general. The music that introduces the episodes is absolutely beautiful and totally bone-chilling, as befits the show. Here is the full song by Swedish artist Fever Ray accompanied by a dark and slightly disturbing (in a good way) music video from director Andreas Nilsson. Enjoy!

Music Video: M.I.A. - "Bad Girls"

You may already know how much we love the magic musical stylings of the lovely M.I.A., but you probably have no idea how obsessed we are with Orphan Black. We love doppelgangers, we love sci-fi, and we love good music, so when we saw the pilot and the first song to play on the entire show was this (see below), we were pretty impressed. I laughed out loud at the excessive amount of Arab automobile mania in this video (please note: I am an Arab, I can make fun of us) and at just how fucking chill Mathangi looks filing her nails on top of that sideways car. What a fucking queen. Also, they just don't make beats this phat anymore. The brilliant director is Romain Gavras and you should totally check out the official Behind the Scenes if you're wondering where and why. Enjoy!
