Non, je ne regrette rien
We've written about thecocknbullkid before, here and here. We were predicting she'd have a fantastic 2009 and we assumed she'd be all over those big in 2009 polls. For some reason - known only to the powers that be at the BBC - she didn't make their longlist for their influential Sound Of... poll. That's right, not even the longlist and this was a poll that saw the White Lies finish up in the top 5 or some such rubbish. Hey guys, we don't need another Editors thanks, one is more than enough.
We've been waiting for this, her second single, since she performed it on Jools Holland late last year. It's called 'I'm Not Sorry' and is really rather ace.
The video is cheap and cheerful. Look out for the least convincing dance routine of all time and some visual effects that scream A-Level Media Studies. Bu there's a certain charm to the whole thing and the song's so catchy it doesn't really matter. The hair is well fierce too.
'I'm Not Sorry' is out on March 9 and thecocknbullkid will soon be heading out to the SXSW Festival in Texas. Get her.
