Peaches – Lose You

by MV


I wouldn’t have bothered with this one, after hearing the highly underwhelming Talk to Me, but, fortuitously, I had a rare listen to that archaic beast we once knew as “radio”, and heard something rather special. Then remixes started cropping up left right and centre, and eventually I realised that it was this.

A deliciously minimal beat, vocals that are a kind of shrill, desperate whimper, and bubbling bleeps combine to make this Peaches’ most affecting and immediate single in years. The video is a bizarre, claustrophobic art-house experience, bookended by Peaches in her dressing gown making an uncomfortable declaration of love, but drifting off into a bit of dingy bedroom glamour. All in all, top marks.
