 XIU XIU: HONEYSUCKLES AND THEN YOU DIE

Avant-depressives, Xiu Xiu, could easily be mistaken for happy people who make joyous music;  so, just in case Honeysuckle had you smiling and tapping your feet, they enlisted director Amir Shoucri to piss on your chips.

Taken from Always (their 8th album) it was written by synth-wielding sidewoman Angela Seo on a stolen copy of Ableton. Her first-ever solo tune, this sonic cherry pop is about the soul-snuffing nature of recurring failure and fits perfectly into pop music’s untapped sideline opportunity in divorces and pop-up funerals.
