Cat Power Battles Zombies in 'Cherokee'

Singer escapes the undead in new post-apocalyptic video

By |

Cat Power is out in the desert waiting for a ride at the start of the new video for "Cherokee," the first song on her latest album, Sun, and time is of the essence. As her pal pulls up in a black SUV, armed with what looks like a silver ray gun, they face the arrival of shambling, zombie-like creatures with presumably unpleasant intentions. The next day, after a triumphant campfire scene with other refugees, re-provisioning in a cluster of abandoned buildings takes a fraught turn when vehicles appear on the horizon in both directions: are they friends, or foes?
