Eat Sugar‘s “Pop Singer” reminds me a bit of The Rapture, for some reason. I’m talking about Pieces Of The People We Love, not Echoes. And their video for the song hints of a more disturbing version of Thunderheist’s “Jerk It“. At least initially. It may begin with a dancer clad in a tight and bright outfit who is then joined by a bear wearing the same. Then video has a twist that takes it straight to the realm of the demented.
“Pop Singer” itself is a super catchy, hype worthy song, and it comes off Eat Sugar’s second EP, It’s Not Our Responsibility. As for the earlier reference to The Rapture, “Pop Singer” is the only song that warrants the statement; the rest feature more punk and less similarities in the vocal styling. The EP hits the first of September via your standard online retails (i.e. CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes).
