Soko, Soko, Soko… the name sounded familiar as I read the email, and then I remembered the beautiful First Love Never Die, the French actress and singer’s 2012 single taken from debut album I Thought I Was An Alien.

Ocean of Tears is from the forthcoming follow-up, the intriguingly titled My Dreams Dictate My Reality, due for release on March 3rd on Babycat Records. The video, shot in a style that harks back to the VHS and home-recording glory days, with all the fuzzy quality you’d expect from that era, was directed by Soko and her friend Nina Ljeti. It’s a paean to crazy, wasted spontaneity that matches the song’s wild energy and, like recent release Who Wears The Pants?, a departure from the emotional reflection of her earlier work.
