法蘭黛 (Frandé) – 我只是你的愛人

While tenderness of the heart is necessary to charm, there is no greater seduction than that of unassailable cool.maxresdefault

While tenderness of the heart is necessary to charm, there is no greater seduction than that of unassailable cool. Frandé, from Taiwan, has zeroed in on this seductiveness by whispering over the shoulders of the current masters of unassailable cool, The XX.

“我只是你的愛人”  rides a minimal groove with Faye Wong-esque cooing and a soft echoed guitar line for its duration. The mood that is distant, but far too inviting to turn away from. Like a potential love using distance to pull you in.

The song has a circular feel, repeating its elements innumerable times, but never wearing out its welcome. Quite the opposite, the effect is hypnotic and I find myself constantly putting the song on again immediately after it’s finished.

Let’s hope that an album is on its way that can live up to this single.
