Who can remember when Kelis broke on to the music scene with ‘I hate you so much right now?’ It was the best song for screaming along to when your teenage love had done something very wrong, like not getting you anything for valentines day when you’ve only been dating for 3 weeks. Over the years we’ve added to our ‘angry’ playlist.
Our newest addition is Paloma Faith’s new single ‘Can’t Rely on You’. It is taken from the newly released album ‘A Perfect Contradiction’ and the fact that the video has had over 2 million views on YouTube we know there are others out there with playlists of a similar theme. The video features four archetypal males; The Surgeon, The Stable Boy, The Lover and The Leader (‘Love is a cult baby girl.’ – claims The Leader). Each character is explored in more depth on Faith’s website accompanied by rich iconoclastic graphics. We look forward to more eccentrically English songs from the rest of the album.
