    dreamy ethereal alt-pop gorgeousness :disco:



    the other two tracks she put out last week are pretty good as well

    I know what you mean. Chairlift sometimes rode that line between great and annoying too.

    Wow, this new one is killer.



    That chorus is pure 80s power pop.

    Top marks for the artwork too. (Her poor vag!)

    i quite like it. she always treads a thin line for me vocally - i found ocean of tears kinda grating - here she's a bit more shrill than i'd like as well but it works well and the song itself is really great.

    Yes I dig it - she certainly knows her way around a hook - and was glad to see she finally announced a date for the album (a week after the new VÉRITÉ - Jark have you been following the other singles outside "Gone"?).

    As am said her voice can be problematic but it also adds a certain edge to her music.

    I think my favourite thing about her is when she stopped an interview for five minutes when asked how many people had been in love with her (ghastly question) in order to whip out her phone and add them all up exactly! Her OCD is relatable.

    So Hot... is excellent. It really reminds me of something, I want to say HAIM but not sure it is them.

    I'll give the album a go. Hopefully the vocal experimentation (which seems to be going further than in Chairlift) won't be too much. Parachute in particular was not for me.

    it's wonderful. i'm so happy contemporary dance is having such a big moment in (pop) music.

    I really like her movements, but I think it could have been shot a bit better.

    In other news, this has probably entered my top dozen of the year.
    She certainly knows her audience!

    is she a scorned Haim sister who's finally escaped the bunker?

    pleasant listening either way

    the album is great, where you bitches at

    she's also provided us kindly with the latest episode of Popstars Drag Critics on Twitter.



    it is absolutely definitely not a drag though and she's responding strictly for educational purposes, even though there "is no wrong interpretation". so there.
