Simple, clever and chic: a stylish little song from an elegant Amy Turnidge: I like it.
Her low-key minimalism and sultry vocals make the record a Chanel suit of a pop track: a sound with an implicit sense of style and an expression sung clearly - no need for elaboration or embellishment - just a song about a hypocrite by a girl who was fooled.
The video is also worth a mention: like shoes to the handbag, it matches the song in style and elegance - black and white, stark and yet subtle - striking but secretive. There's just something about it, a je ne sais quoi, that has me humming along and reaching for the eyeliner.
