"The Colour of the Earth", PJ Harvey a cappella

Ms Polly Jean Harvey keeps challenging us. Not only she has released the best album of her career, "Let England Shake", and delivered a powerful true statement about our world, even more poignant now that we are, involved in another war, but she continues to strike us with audacious videos. Directed by war photographer Seamus Murphy, "The Colour of the Earth" is a superb one. A compelling a cappella interpretation, leaving you no escape but to hear what they are singing. And it is definitely worth the hearing. The backbones of a mesmerizing song.

The colour of the earth that day/ It was dull and browny red/The colour of blood, I'd say
