There was no forgetting Aimee Saturne after her audaciously titled debut single ‘Don’t Tell My Boyfriend’, although it was hard to see how the sophomore release could top the entrancing seduction. We clearly underestimated the dark pop songstress who is hell-bent on leaving her sultry mark on the airwaves and on the lascivious streets of LA.
With “I think I’ve finally lost my fucking mind because I think about you all of the time” as the opening lyric in ‘Silver Screen Lover’, you can’t help but be drawn in by the candid lyricism which Aimee Saturne’s seductive vocal range wraps around as bass-riding notes blazon beneath.
It would be an edgy track, if the empowering feat of sexually charged pop wasn’t so flawlessly produced. What you hear in Silver Screen Lover is an admission of someone entirely in command of their sexual agency. It’s the ultimate antidote to crass faux feminist pop.
Silver Screen Lover is now available to stream via Spotify.
