Amanda Palmer showcases her raw expression in her new video with The Grand Theft Orchestra, “Not the Killing Type”. The video’s intensity shows in her face and though it is basic in its fundamental aesthetic, manages to leave a lasting impression. Her angst is tangible as she grits her teeth and thrashes hysterically, literally and figuratively. The video devolves into a visceral, yet cathartic fest of blood, splashed against the all-white wardrobe and set, creating a visually pleasing, albeit morbid, scene for fans to feast upon.
