Blogathon: Tears & Marble – “We don’t like you” (video)

31 Jan

Here’s something else that’s rather special. You may recall a few weeks ago we fell head over heels in love with the most random thing ever, a cover version of Haddaway’s “What Is Love”. It was so surprisingly beautiful, haunting and remarkably, full of depth and meaning that we were utterly blown away.

Since then we have kept in touch with the Dutch duo responsible, Tears & Marble and when we told them about our charity blogathon, they said they’d try and have something ready to share with us on the day.

They do.

And it’s stunning.

“We Don’t Like You” is sedate, unnerving and unerring in its sparsity, cold and completely mesmerising. Thick with contempt, swimming in taunts and darkness; the melody tap taps like an inner demon on the inside of your skull, drumming in the loathing so you never forget, never ever forget to feel repulsive. The soft, harassing vocal coils round the emotion like a serpent, pumping its venom into the veins of hope and acceptance and filling it with its vile intent.

“We don’t like you at all” it says, but by God do we like it. Look out for these two, Tears & Marble are going places. Dark, icy places full of ominous electronics and melancholic beauty.
