Got A Girl - 'I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 21, 2014
  • Label: Bulk Recordings
7 / 10 Got A Girl are actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead and producer/Deltron 3030 member Dan 'The Automator' Nakamura. They met while making Scott Pilgrim Vs The World (she played Ramona Flowers, he wrote the score), and bonded over their shared love of French yé-yé singers such as Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy. The result is not unlike Lana Del Rey, but with fun instead of fatalistic gloom. Nakamura's lush arrangements are bolstered by gentle hip-hop beats and Winstead's seductive voice is given grit by playfully sinister lyrics: "Maybe soon you'll see the real me", she sings on 'Things Will Never Be The Same’. It sounds more like a threat than a promise.
