Watch: Cat Power’s Zombified “Cherokee”

    We already knew Cat Power could write a song (and an entire fantastic album) but now the artist known as Chan Marshall is trying her film hand, both in front of and behind the camera. In the new Marshall-directed clip for Sun opener “Cherokee,” the singer offers an ode to Mad Max and Road Warrior with her own open desert apocalyptic tale. There are zombies and what appear to be squirt guns that shoot energy, but it’s best not to try and tease out the plot. Just let the song’s great melody and the video’s cinematography do all the work.
