Watch: Prudence Rees-Lee – Emmanuelle

prudenceMelbourne duo Hammocks & Honey released a great LP in the form of 2011’s Spellbinder, but they’ve since kept quiet. Now we know why: Prudence Rees-Lee – half of that group – has her debut LP Court Music From The Planet Love releasing in April 2013 through Special Award Records, and judging by the first single ‘Emmanuelle’ it’s no lowly solo project: Rees-Lee obviously thinks (and composes) big. This is thickly textured pop music that equally recalls The Carpenters (in Rees-Lee’s secretive vocal delivery) and Nancy Sinatra.

‘Emmanuelle’ is named after “enigmatic erotic cinema icon” Sylvia Kristel and religious figure Immanuel. The Zoe Scoglio-directed filmclip is now available to watch for the first time ever below, so revel in its PBS exotica splendor.
