CC Strikes Again!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you're probably very familiar with the woman formerly known as CC Martini. The pioneer of pip pop is one of the first ladies of pop trash. I stanned hard for singles like "Champagne Taste" and "Double Dutch" and genuinely adored her debut album "All The Way". After revolutionising the Australian pop scene as we know it, she disappeared to America and has been pretty quiet. But that's all about to change. CC, as she is now known, is gearing up to release her sophomore album Girl Scout and just dropped the lead single. "Worst Boyfriend" is a spiky little pop song littered with catchy hooks and raunchy lyrics. I love the on-trend dub-step breakdown and sexy synths. This is great stuff BUT please listen to the song with your eyes closed. No shade to CC - she knows I love her - but the video (below) is just not right. It's hard for independent artists but homegirl looks like she emptied a Goonbag and decided to film the clip in her garage using someone's mobile phone. I just don't want you to judge the song by the visual. On a brighter now, if "Worst Boyfriend" is a taste of what's to come - Girl Scout could turn out to be one of 2012's best independent pop albums. It's that good!

Dowload the song from CC's website by following this link. An iTunes release will follow shortly.

You know, the video for this is actually really good (IMO) but the song, not so much.

Its about time stunning CC returned! I like the video. Apart from the giggly girly bit at the end.

I took your advice and listened without the video, and then again with the video. You are a wise man. The song is great.
