Madam West - "Symbols" (video)

Madam West are a New York-based quartet with a penchant for electronics and trip-pop fusion.

One of the band's songs, "Symbols", from EP Los Singles, has recently received video treatment by way of some DIY intergenerationality. Dolls belonging to singer Sophie Chernin's mother make their acting debut here. Madam West's full-length debut is coming soon. The band is keeping busy with shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan in the meantime, including a 5 December slot at Nola, Darling in Chelsea.
