Luciana dropped the video for her brilliant new single "When It Feels This Good" earlier today and it's absolute winner. The high-camp visual extravaganza finds the holy Queen of clubs rollerblading down Hollywood Boulevard with a gaggle of scantily-clad gal pals in hot pursuit. The duchess of dance then steals Richard Vission's van, poses saucily in a bright orange Louise Brooks wig and goes on a massive bender. So it's basically a gritty, fly-on-the-wall documentary about Ms Caporaso's lewd LA lifestyle! I love everything about the clip. It captures the diva's irreverent attitude perfectly and has a distinct '70s aesthetic that sets it apart from similar girls-gone-wild videos. But enough about the year's best short film. How amazing is the song?
Over the past six or seven months I've heard previews and even an unfinished demo but nothing prepared me for this triumph. This is Luciana's best single since "I Like That" and, with a bit of luck and radio airplay, it could be just as successful. Richard Vission's beats come harder than a porn star and that topline is a work of art. Luci has written the chorus of the year! More importantly, "When It Feels This Good" represents a step away from the electro-shouting that has become super-songwriter's trademark. There's a bit of that but the official follow-up to "I'm Still Hot" is first and foremost a pop anthem with broad commercial appeal. The song formerly known as "Swagga" is already climbing the ARIA club chart and will no doubt feature prominently in Luciana's setlist when she tours Australia next month.
I'll let you know when it hits iTunes. In the meantime brace yourself for RSI from hitting the repeat button below.
