Chris Sorbello - "So Lonely" Video Shoot

I was lucky enough to crash be invited to the set of Chris Sorbello's "So Lonely" video shoot on Monday night and thought I'd post a couple of happy snaps. After the recent digital release of her taster EP (Hint: I'm told the free download will be taken down at any moment), Australia's latest electro-pop sensation is busy putting the finishing touches to her official debut single. "So Lonely" will be released by Ministry of Sound in February/March and has been given a complete overhaul by the brilliant Sam La More. I love the dreamy new mix. The icy beats come thick and fast without strangling the fragility and vulnerability that made the original leaked version a Myspace favourite. Given the hot line-up of DJs contributing remixes (Van She and Hook N Sling), expect to hear "So Lonely" burning up a dancefloor near you in the not too distant future.

Rehearsals

Ok, back to the video clip. I think it's going to be amazing. The sparse, futuristic look suits the song perfectly and I'm glad the PVC clad backing dancers from the showcase are making a return appearance. Chris looked absolutely stunning and nailed the dance routine take after take. In fact, I saw it so many times I think I know all the moves by heart! The great thing about Chris is the fact that she's not scared of pushing the envelope and some of her outfits will give Roisin Murphy couture envy. I also haven't seen that many pairs of crazy stilettos (below) since The Drag Bag closed down - the gays truly have a new icon! In all seriousness, noone else is making this kind of music in Australia at the moment or paying this much attention to styling and image, so I really hope it all pays off. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Beyond Fabulous! Though I still suspect this meeting is the reason for K Lo looking less orange than usual...

Oh, wow, lucky you! love that shot of all the shoes :) Heaven!

I saw the clip yesterday and fell in love with the sweater/sweaterdress that she's wearing late in the clip - any chance you've got a photo of that a bit clearer? I'd love to try to make something similar (I knit LOL).

Great story!
