TUNE Ellie Bleach - He Bought Me Nikes
Taking inspiration for Weyeblood, Father John Misty and Alexandra Saviour, the cynical 70s -nfluenced track saunters in with a shimmering harpsichord opening and a self-assured bassline which perfectly accompanies Ellie Bleach’s hilariously dry and accurate lyrical observations.
“‘He Bought Me Nikes’ is about a type of guy that I’ve encountered time and time again with a God complex that leaves them totally aloof and detached from anyone that tries to get close to them,” Bleach explains. I was obsessed with the Jonestown Massacre and the heaven’s gate cult. I kept thinking, what kind of person is so magnetic, so attractive they can lure people to their own deaths? Then I realised, I know plenty of guys like that, and have fallen for one or two."
