BONUS SEXY PIC (A sexy pic of the artist or a sexy pic that’s loosely inspired by the song. If no sexy pic of the artist is available, we typed the song title plus “sexy” and/or “nude” into Google image search and this is what we got.) :

Indie-Rock-Cartoon-Sexiness! Google image search give us this cool fan art of a cartoon version of Torres from the cover of the album by Twitter user Jer_Torres_ (no relation, I think).
