I played the final moments of Monday's episode of Weeds a few times last night just to take in the great closing song. Called "Bang Bang," the song by the London-based, half-Italian half-British singer-songwriter Sara Schiralli lent the perfect melancholy quality to the episode's pivotal scenes.
Based on what I'm hearing on Schirali's MySpace page, this is an artist worth keeping an eye on. I'm also digging the cutesy-but-soulful "Roll the Dice" and the rhythmic "Incomplete," and her whole debut album seems destined to end up on my iPod before long.
But it's "Bang Bang" that got me hooked, and it's the one I recommend checking out first. To hear it for yourself, just read more.
You can also hear the full track on MySpace or download it on iTunes.
