Lindi Ortega Joins the Dark Side on “Murder of Crows”

Apparently, Lindi Ortega only appears sweet and unassuming. The singer-songwriter’s new video for “Murder of Crows” shows a darker — and creepier — side. With the delicate warble in her voice and her tiny stature, Ortega may not seem like much trouble. Then she covers her face in skeleton paint, grabs a shotgun and croons sensually about hiding a body in a field behind her house. In the old murder-ballad tradition, her victim is a no-good who won’t really be missed, but this black-and-white clip makes it seem like little Lindi might just have a taste for the kill. Check out the world premiere of her cunning new video, “Murder of Crows.”
