Swedish-American trio Thieves Like Us are back with another cold, tense slice of clubby electropop nostalgia, “Marie Marie,” a dark, knife-sharp series of demands directed at that titular, “cold as ice” heroine – “stop calling me at night!” “Take my advice!” That warbling, steel-drummy, distorted backbeat and assorted sharp, cutting synth riffs help cultivate an appropriately mysterious, chilly air – here’s a song with shadows under its eyes, a lot of dark secrets, a song that dresses in black. It’s also completely irresistible, instantly and permanently catchy, a stunning piece of toe-tapping strobe-light pop. Captured Tracks will release Thieves Like Us’s fourth LP, Bleed Bleed Bleed, on March 20.
New: Thieves Like Us – “Marie Marie”
Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, and more show up.
He also makes a quick cameo as a detective.
“Bubs” is a collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Another new track to follow up last week’s “A Kick To The Face.”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
With help from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and an amazing piano.
