On the heels of standout tracks “Rumour” and “How Proud,” UK’s pop prodigy Chlöe Howl's newest offering gives our generation a similarly-themed but more amped-up variation of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” – being a bit more bold in the accusatory chorus, asserting “This song’s not about you.”
It’s got the energetic alto of a P!NK anthem with impassioned hooks a la Florence Welch and a tempo that’s reminiscent of The Killers. An added electronic overlay makes it the perfect pop track to blast during bitter post-breakup days… and if you're still happily attached? It's still a song to shake up the work week and make mid-January a little less bland.
And as the British do, they always find a more delicate way to say "screw you" – like the line “It’s clear you only fancy yourself / so I’ll do without you." But regardless of the choice words we would use, I think we can pretty much all relate to self-centered exes and get on board with a good empowerment ballad.
