Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Time of the Assassins.
Charlotte Gainsbourg is a half-Brit-half-French singer/songwriter/actress whose family is also in the business — and she’s been on Bossy’s radar since 2007 when she released the record 5:55, which featured haunting, very original songs such as Little Monsters and Tel Que Tu Es.
Charlotte Gainsbourg’s latest effort, IRM, released at the end of 2009, carries on her tradition of breezy vocals over sometimes complicated rhythms and melodic changes.
Bossy’s not sure this track is as thoughtfully articulated as others on the record (such as In The End) — lyrically, these verses are almost childlike— but the chorus is cool, and reminds Bossy of a James Bond theme song.
