British rock 'n' roller Scarlette stars in a flashy music video for her tune "6ft Woman", which runs through a stylish history of cinematic iconography.

Having already garnered attention in her native UK with placement on two BBC Radio 2 playlists for her singles “Crash & Burn” and “Elated”, Scarlette recently made a video—which you can watch exclusively below—of her tune “6ft Woman”, a loving tribute to both rock music and cinematic iconography. Essentially, the video is a snazzy collection of opening credit scenes, with all of the cool fonts that one can see on classic film posters.
Scarlette tells PopMatters about the video, “Welcome to the mad world of Team Scarlette! I loved making this video: it satisfied my camp, Carry On films loving inner drag queen. The song itself is pretty dark so it was great to have some fun with the video.”

Scarlette is at work on her next LP, Attack of the 6ft Woman, which she is producing along with Julian Emery (Lissie) and Paul Simm (Neneh Cherry).
