In the middle of NO HOTEL, The Claudettes’ new album full of playfully raucous songs and instrumentals, comes a song born of personal tragedy but bathed in beauty and light.  “She’s So Imaginary” is a vibrant throwback to the sound of ’60s pop-soul. But the inspiration for the song lies in personal tragedies endured by members of The Claudettes, and is set in the aftermath of the heart-rending 2014 Korean ferry disaster.

The new video, which premieres today on Innocent Words, stars Claudettes singer Yana and seven-year-old Roman F. Berkowitz VI, whose evocative misuse of the English language gave the song its title.
