With the never ending tabloid feeding frenzy of seeing the lives of such artists as Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber and Amanda Bynes spinning out of control, Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes' new video for "Vicious Cycle" is an example of art imitating life as it delves into  human nature's darkness of reveling in witnessing those at the top unravel before out eyes. 

Clairy Brown's new video, exclusively premiering on ETonlne, is a sultry tease that starts off innocently, highlighting Browne's silky, smooth and powerful vocals,  which builds with  threatening horns, ending with Browne singing "Still I Cry, Feel like Crying' to an exciting climax which echoes today's pop culture stalkerazzi environment.  The video is fittingly shot on a stage with a lone spotlight possibly symbolizing the scrutiny every performer lives under.   " 'Vicious Cycle' is a funeral march for artists loved and lost," the band writes on their Facebook page.  

"Vicious Cycle" is off their debut album Baby Caught the Bus which was released stateside last month and includes their hit single "Love Letter"  which gained international attention when it was featured in Heinekin's tv spot, surpassing over 1 million views on Youtube.  Recently, the Australian group completed their North American tour, blowing away U.S. audiences at SXSW and wowing tv audiences during appearances on such shows as NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly."  Check out the video below:
