The Bird And The Bee

"Fucking Boyfriend"

Coming off a solo album, it’s clear that vocalist/bassist Inara George has not lost her jazz-styling roots in this new collaboration with keyboardist/producer Greg Kurstin, (who, incidentally, produced Lily Allen’s premier record). Dropping the acoustic feel from her solo album, the duo opts for a quasi sugar-coated synthesized sound that will leave you tapping your feet and bopping your head against your will. But while you’re tapping and bopping, pay close attention to George’s lyrics; “Are you an amateur or is it you’re unkind?/ To torture all the other girls you keep me by your side/ Are you unsatisfied? You can’t make up your mind…/ Would you be my fucking boyfriend?” It speaks volumes about the depth of the song despite George’s breathy, bell-like voice. The song uses it’s playfulness to get across a very biting message of self-imposed dependency that is both funny and disturbing at the same time. Most of all, its sarcastic and satisfying sentiments ring true for most, making it a must-hear.
