‘Don’t To Do’

Everything about former model turned singer-songwriter Lissy Trullie oozes attitude, from her punchy cover of Hot Chip’s ‘Ready For The Floor’ to her kohl-rimmed eyes, boyish crop and penchant for bowler hats. It’s not surprising then that ‘Don’t To Do’, one of the new bonus tracks from her recently re-released EP Self-Taught Learner does little to dispel that image. Jangly, Strokes-style guitars swathe Lissy’s strutting, cocksure vocals as she spits out lyrics that are refreshingly clear cut. “I don’t hate you / I just don’t think I love you!” she snarls over Motown ‘woahs’, recalling the uncomplicated, Orange Juice-style indie pop songs of days long gone.

In the current crowd, Lissy Trullie has a spark of something different; her punk sensibilities and serious hipster credentials (Chloe Sevigny made an appearance in her video for ‘Boy Boy’, she’s currently touring with The Cribs, and she has a song featured in Megan Fox-fronted blockbuster ‘Jennifer’s Body’) should ensure she stands out from the crowd. And if not, I wouldn’t like to be the person who’s caught ignoring her. MP3 after the jump.
