BOTM - Desert of Wasted Plans

My old friend T. send me this video: " Look at this, it reminded me of you when I saw it !" Oh, he knows me quite well.
I love music which contains dark, mysterious or disturbing themes, lyrics, images, attitudes....whatever. I call it the "David Lynch" syndrome.
For example:
  • White Lies - To lose my life
  • Anything from Fever Ray or The Knife
  • Interpol - Lights
  • of course Woodkid - Iron
  • Radiohead - Just
  • Tori Amos - Spark
  • Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy
  • Nine Inch Nails - Early videos you hardly see anywhere like Closer, Pinion, Happiness in Slavery 
  • Esben and the witch - all videos
Today I add this video and band to my list. The band's name is a bit strange " Betting on the Mouse", shortly BOTM. The band was formed by Martha Marie Skou in 2009 and comes from Copenhagen.
A demo CD was produced already in January this year, but similar to Woodkid's debut only with a handful of tracks, but what gorgeous tracks !!!!
Here some links for more information and if you want to listen to all tracks:!/pages/Betting-on-the-Mouse/106086418752?sk=app_178091127385


And now enjoy this beautiful's really wonderful...the artistic images, Martha's amazing voice and the atmosphere of the whole composition.
I love it. The song is called " Desert of Wasted Plans". Epic.

And here a live version....

I try to post the lyrics as soon as I got them....
