Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards (or tUnE-yArDs) and Mimi Cave go way back. Now they reunite to present another wonderfully uplifting mess of kinetic song-and-dance for Heart Attack, from the forthcoming album I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life.

Cave's colour coordinated dancers are arranged in different locations, then suffer simulataneous faux-coronaries when they remove paper bags from their heads, while Garbus cuts a theatrically agonised figure under a heavy spotlight. They all eventually gather together for a final throw of life's dice, while Garbus does the best "heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack" since Billy Joel's Moving Out.

No one really does the overly dramatic quite like her, certainly not in what is generally termed 'alternative music'.
