The indiscriminate manipulation of a cute Fox doll on a music video must stop. The abuse is apparent, the teasing is dangerous, and it sure makes it simple to like the song. Heck. We’re human being, man! We’re simple.
XUAN is to drop her debut LP ‘Have Some Fun’ coming September of this year. And from that, this particular single ‘We Were Just Talking’, a Brooklyn / Los Angeles DIY-pop-esque single, drives you up the wall with its hook and simpleness from beginning to end.
But is that a good thing?
With synth samplings layered on top of basic diary like lyrics, XUAN, seems to be holding herself back from the stories that she wants to tell.
Or is she?
These are questions we can’t possible answer. But one thing’s for sure. ‘We Were Just Talking’ is quirky and weird and odd enough to be a fave this morning for us. The poppy-ness is reminiscent of current pop surf-pop, and surely has the self-deprecating assault that we, at CHF, look for and indulge.
Anywho, the jealousy for the little ‘Mr. Fox’ is real. Because for his size, the Economy Class seating on that flight, must have been heaven!
AKA = he’s got a small rump.
‘HAVE SOME FUN’ will be available on all formats including physicals like CD and such, via Palo Santo Records.
Fun stuff, XUAN. Fun stuff.
