Review: Alimony Hustle- Miss GB 7″ (self-released)

Posted: July 4, 2017 in Reviews

The first track from the UK indie-pop band focuses on the sexism inherent in the stripping of Zara Holland’s title of “Miss Great Britain” after a “scandal” in which she was filmed having sex during the course of reality TV show “Love Island.” There’s inherent sexism in the whole idea of a beauty pageant, too, but the double standard of destroying a woman’s life for having sex while saying nothing about the man involved is anger inducing. The music is gorgeous waltz time indie pop, with fluttering guitars and spare drum beats. The flip side, “No Chill,” is a blend of indie-pop with a slightly dreamy feel, and is about the unlikelihood and impermanence of romantic relationships. The two songs are quite nice, and leave me wanting more.
