New Lavender Diamond Video – “Open Your Heart”

Amazing that we haven’t got around to mentioning Becky Stark (aka Lavender Diamond) since February of last year, but sometimes the blog pile gets to be an unruly mess. The first vid from Imagine Our Love delivers all you need to know about Becky, namely that she’s constantly dangling on the precipice of over-preciousness; her best charm is that she makes it work (mostly). We finally had the chance to check Lavender live during an intimate show at the the bizarre, beautiful Gramercy Arts Club, where Becky’s recounting a cab ride from Chelsea to Brooklyn was nearly as amusing as her open hearted, optimistic songs. Sia (yes that Sia) directed the “Open Your Heart” clip and helps make sure Lavender Diamond falls on the right side of the too-cute divide.
