Dead Emerson – Sucker Punch

One of my favourite indie-pop releases of the week, from one of the brightest talents to emerge from LA over the past year.

“My desire for independence in both friend and romantic relationships overtook my willingness to foster interdependence. And while I agree people in relationships should be autonomous, I can’t help but wonder if I have taken that sentiment too far. Sometimes it feels like the only thing that could wake me up is if romance materialised out of thin air and, quite literally, socked me in the face.”
