Medina: You left me in the gutter
Both the song and the video are pretty sophisticated. Next level stuff for the Danish diva Medina, who looks much edgier as a bottle blond. Last year I fell for the Deadmau5 remix of her track You And I (hear it), but kind of hated the original (hear it). Whoops. Her new US single is Addiction, but it's Gutter that lifts her above that anonymous international disco thing that's so prevalent in Europe. This is much subtler and more melancholy.
The album this is culled from, Welcome To Medina, was released last summer internationally and is due in the US soon. Read an interview with her at Pop In Stereo and get Gutter on iTunes now.
