Carte Postal

NME Logo
Initially coming on like Sarah Nixey covering Chicks On Speed’s ‘Euro Trash Girl’, ‘Carte Postale’ is a very modern tour de force. Yeah, she sounds like the girl at work who waxes lyrical about her “good friends” Bloc Party, but dig deeper and there’s something much more interesting to be found. It may reference MSN, Street Fighter II and drainpipe jeans but also has huge gravitas as a touching tale of a post-break-up breakdown and that moment when you try to conceal your very core beneath bullshit image changes just to hide the creeping loneliness. Single of the winter?
