'Satellite Heart' Anya Marina
Anya Marina MySpace Video
The video, available on MySpace, is set in a location very similar to Forks, Washington, the town where Kristen Stewart's Bella and Robert Pattinson's Edward meet and fall in love. Wearing a black, hooded cloak, Marina walks somberly through a lush forest, past waterfalls, rushing water, moss-covered boulders and thick foliage. Her blood red nails and lips contrast with her pale skin and the earthy green and brown tones of her surroundings. The song has a simple, stripped down arrangement led by an acoustic guitar and eventually joined by strings.
As we see Bella stand alone in the forest, it seems Marina is invoking the perspective of the heartbroken teen. "So pretty, so smart," she sings. "Such a waste of a young heart/ What a pity, what a sham/ What's the matter with you, man?"
