"A mindless, irresponsible refrain, with our deepest sympathy and condolences"...or... "A dumb knee jerk reaction of a morbid narcisist to a brief encounter with happiness." Rssll (in his own words)
This is a 96K version..
Second single from Riva Starr's sophomore album "Hand in Hand"... an eclectic double a-side dealing squarely with modern society's burning predicaments... Life, Love, Drugs, Nature and the Pursuit of Happiness (or lack thereof) all rolled into two deceptively simple hooks...
"Kill Me" is a quirky ode to the transient beauty of human life on the planet and a stark warning that we may be abusing the very thing we cherish... "Life is as sweet as make believe, Baby wont you kill me when you leave!"
The B-Side Detox Blues deals with the more mondane problems impinging on our daily life, and cheekily confronts our most modern dilemma... Should we keep the party going at any cost or are we better off just staying in bed? (premiere by Gilles Peterson on BBC 6 Music 27-04-2013).
All very tongue-in-cheek and blatantly, irreparably spine-tinglingly optimistic ;)
Includes remixes by Claptone, Mixhell, Mark Starr and Butch.
OUT May the 20th exclusively on Beatport and 2 weeks after on all the other digital stores!
