Berlin-based Skin Diary has fired the first shot in the war for Cover Video of 2011 with their wild take on Blondie’s “Heart of Glass.” Supersaturated color, Peter Gabriel-style stop motion photography, and girls murdering angels all feature prominently in this story of a woman who ultimately finds true love with herself (when herself is Godzilla).

The band delivers an exciting disco-punk romp through the song, replete with frenetic drumming and Wall-of-Sound guitars. Lead singer Jessica Jekyll boldly tackles the vocal, coming off as Debbie Harry with a touch of Karen O and Alison Goldfrapp thrown into the mix. The song will stick in your head for hours and the video should give you some interesting dreams.

  1. Skin Diary rocks!! They really deserve more attention – this cover is only one example of their excellent mixture of pop, rock, punk, funk and avantgarde. And the best of it all: It’s fun!

  2. Seriously, how do you find this stuff? Nice work!
