A Victorian child shoplifter sings her daydreams amidst a musical collision between shiny pop phrasings and rowdy courtroom shouting. Her spirit is summoned out of stolen fragments (a Taylor Swift chord progression, a Jean Genet novel, memories of childhood, a Victorian hymn), and she seems all too aware of herself as a glistening pop construct summoned into our world through these ‘lying words’. Lola de Witte-Still remixes what was originally a Paul Rooney sound installation (this is his first single since Lucy Over Lancashire) to create a shiny kick-driven experimental pop track, with nods to AG Cook, Men’s Choir Shouters of Finland and Oneohtrix Point Never.
