Miss World – Lip Job.
We thought out previous feature ‘Bubblebutt’ by Pink Kink looked like winning our shortest “track of the day” post ever checking in at 1 minute and 49 seconds.
We were wrong as Miss World returns with her follow-up to ‘Put Me In A Movie’ in the form of ‘Lip Job’ which shaves an impressive 11 seconds off the record clocking in at just 1 minute and thirty-eight seconds. Miss World is the project of London/Toronto based artist Natalie Chahal (also half of fellow PNKSLM signees Shit Girlfriend alongside Laura-Mary Carter) and ‘Lip Job’ from her forthcoming Waist Management EP once again shows her ability to craft dark rumbling melodic lo-fi pop. Thematically she concentrates on our obsession with the cosmetic in terms of looks and fame.
It’s another fabulous track, albeit slower paced than her previous release and again shows not only an ear for melody but the ability to capture an atmosphere perfectly. Despite its length, ‘Lip Job’ conveys the melancholy of fading glamour, the emptiness of its pursuit and the shallowness of fame for its own sake, which is, of course, emptier than Norma Desmond’s decaying mansion on Sunset Boulevard! On this showing, Miss World is definitely “ready for her close-up”
