Santigold's 'Girls' video for 'Girls' features girls, but no Lena Dunham
And that's OK... now dance
Lena Dunham's show "Girls" took home gobs of Golden Globes Awards last night, but today is Santigold's "Girls" triumph.
As previously reported, the songwriter contributed the song "Girls" to the "Girls" TV show soundtrack. And it's fun. It evidently is fun to other girls as well. The video companion features women and girls of all ages lip-syncing to the track, bouncing and bounding in their natural habitats. No exposed booties or eye-popping costumery; no glamorous lens tricks or luxury cars or slathered-on makeup. We're so used to artifice, it's refreshing to just see females having a good time to a song after their own heart.
"Girls – Volume 1: Music from the HBO Original Series" was released Jan. 8, and included other originals and contributions from fun., Tegan and Sara and Robyn.
