Wednesday Is For Lovers - Cat and Sinkane

We have two electrically charged videos for today's edition of #WednesdayIsForLovers. First up is "You Belong To Me", from Cat. Although better known as one-half of the sister duo The Pierces, Cat is making a splash as a solo artist this year. She channels West Coast melancholia and shades of Lana del Ray through wall of sound mysticism redolent of Bat for Lashes. When Cat sings, "I must confess to you, I want to possess you", you sit up and take notice.

On the flip side of the coin is a kinetically colorful video from Sinkane that celebrates the pleasures of the flesh. Born in London to Sudanese parents, Ahmed Gallab spent part of his childhood in the UK and Sudan prior to moving to Ohio. This endlessly versatile musician collaborated with acts as diverse as Caribou, of Montreal, Eleanor Friedberger and #ThrowbackThursday artist Yeasayer before embarking on a solo career. This silky smooth number effortlessly melds synth-pop with Afro-jazz and funk in this Miami Vice-tinged stunner. You can catch Sinkane at the Black Cat on February 18th with Richmond's No BS Brass Band.
