Use This Pistol On My Heart


I'm in a weird mood. With the exception of Alicia Keys' new single and Rita Ora's surprisingly good album (review coming soon), pop music isn't really doing it for me at the moment. So I'm broadening my horizons. One of my new obsessions is Mia Dyson. She's been around for the best part of a decade but her latest album has transformed me from casual listener to loyal fan. So who is this stunning chanteuse? I guess Mia is best-described as Australia's answer to Melissa Etheridge because of her soaring, whiskey-soaked voice and popularity with lesbians. The former quality is beautifully showcased on "Pistol", the brilliant second single from The Moment. This is a timeless blues anthem that inexplicably reminds me of Elan's "Midnight". Does anyone else remember that Mexican diva? Mia's lyrics hit home like a sucker punch and I'm in awe of her voice. The video (below) is astoundingly awful, so just close your eyes and wait for the chorus. It's worth it.

Video...hideous. Song...intense. I'm very much into this Americana group called Delta Rae right now. You might be into this as well...http://youtu.be/bimam2j2gEg
