This is amazing. Julia Marcell is a Polish singer-songwriter who has been releasing music since 2007. The song Tarantino is taken from her (awesome) 2016 album, Proxy. Tarantino is about the violence inherent in the system of strict codes of feminine beauty and behaviour. Make sure you watch the video with the translated subtitles on – this song contains some amazing, powerful lines (‘violence smiles in a bikini’ and ‘Don’t read the bible, that’s some real Tarantino’) as well as a very neat multiple choice ending that makes the viewer themselves partially culpable for the continuation of the endless violence.
This song is clever and beautifully constructed and Julia sounds like such an interesting performer. I am looking forwards to exploring the rest of her extraordinary work.
