Laura Gibson’s Steamy New Music Video

By Aaron Scott January 27, 2012

Laura Gibson just premiered her gorgeous new music video for “La Grande” over at NPR. Directed by local music video auteur Alicia Rose (whose video for "Cake’s Mustache Man just premiered on MTV2), it’s a Gothic tale about a woman checking into the eerie and beautiful Hot Lake Hotel in La Grande, Oregon, where people vanish into wisps of smoke, lost in the steam billowing from the 208 degree hot springs. Gibson described it to NPR as a “cross between Mary Poppins and The Shining.” In other words, the perfect way to end your week.

Gibson’s new album of the same name, La Grande, is out now. Read our review. Or catch her record release party at Mississippi Studios on Friday, Feb 3.
