“True Blood” actress Janina Gavankar (aka Luna Garza on the hit show) also has a budding music career if her new single “Waiting for Godot” is any indication. Today, Billboard.com debuted the video, which was shot in a single day thanks to some help from Gavankar’s friends including director Caitlin Pashalek who had previously worked with the actress on a video cover of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown.”
The song takes its name from the Samuel Beckett play of the same name and references waiting heartlessly for a friend (or in this case, love) to show up. The stark contrasts of the visuals in this film and a double-edged personality (both played by Gavankar) remind us of Bjork’s atmospheric work mixed with a jazzy downtown backbone and modern reflexes of dubstep.
Look for an upcoming EP on Randy Jackson’s Dream Merchant 21 label to come in the near future.
