Alicja-Pop Share I’m Here I’m There
If you’re looking for something to catch you off guard this morning, then might I suggest trying out this new track from Alijca-Pop, the recording project of Alijca Trout. Interestingly, I had this song completely pegged wrong; the angular guitar notes that began had me expecting a finite post-punk sound, but Trout has no intention of playing it safe here. Instead, Alicja cooly delivers verse vocals with a seeming hint of indifference, as if she was completely oblivious to the audience and their expectations. There’s a few moments where the track pulls on that come-hither vocal curl that Debbie Harry rocked so well, beckoning the listener to come closer. In the end, however, this song could survive on the chorus alone; the nonchalant vocal set-up is perfect, hitting you immediately with this brush of emphatic pop glory. If you’re into it, there’s a new 7″ from Feel It Records out on September 29th.
