Film At 11: Oceana

Spunky, cheeky and undeniably sexy, German singer Oceana just wants to do the nasty with you all night in the video for her latest single, “La La,” off her 2008 debut release, Love Supply (Ultra). It starts with her primping for the day, smiling into the mirror, puckering her lips and playing with her gum, these trivial actions done with extra “oompf” ’cause she found herself a man. Fast-forward to her dancing onstage, swinging her hips and showing off her long, strong legs while wearing material so small we’re not even sure it’s called a skirt. The shots that are particularly powerful are the close-ups: flower in her hair, radiant almond skin, lips shining into a classic ribbon microphone. It’s all very Billie Holiday.
