Latest music :

It’s a calm, quiet song, in the vein of Vienna Teng, maybe sarah mclachlan, but a bit more stylized.

The music video weirds me out though. It’s about a guy who orders a robot wife (her being asian brings all sorts of mail-order bride connotations). So he’s creepy.  Eventually he gets a newer model, meanwhile flirts with real girls. Finally he tosses first robot wife aside.  And I know the ending is supposed to be touching, with a homeless man* finding the girl and holding her hand  in friendship. But in my mind, what if the homeless dude is just a creep too and is all hey, free robot wife! He’s actually walking her down to the soup kitchen to show off to his friends, where they will fight over here with plasticware.

I mean, that’s the more realistic scenario.

Whatever, it’s a nice song if you’re into wispy kinda sounding stuff.



*I assume he’s homeless from his disheveled hair, clothes and since he’s picking through trash. Though I could just be racist but I think there are a lot of context clues there.
