Allie X - Paper Love

Toronto born, LA based singer/songwriter Allie X crafts the perfect dark pop blending killer hooks with razor sharp observations about bruised hearts.

This single, the first release from her fantastic new album "CollXtion II", is an ode about choosing the wrong guy even when you're fully aware they will hurt you.  

Lyrics "Oh, I know that boy's gonna rip me up / Cause he ain't that nice / He won't do right / He'll leave a nasty cut."  denote that you know the roaring fire will burn but you still stick your hand in regardless.

The use of a whistle interlude on the track creates an evocative image of someone holding their hands behind their back, pretending they can't see what's happening despite the pain being inflicted.
