Now and then we all need captivating songs to cry to. Harrowing melancholy coming straight from a sorrowful heart is what I cherish in moments of sadness and I had some this year,  privately (my father died) and more in general (the loss of human solidarity). RICH GIRLS is one of those bands you want to have close by when tristesse haunts you. Led by songwriter and endearing voice Luisa Black they released a gripping 5-track EP, titled Love Is The Dealer last September. Five tender pearls to soundtrack gloominess filled twilights. For me, opener LOADED was the track that colored the whole picture just perfectly. Imagine walking into a dim bar, late at night, alone and heavy-hearted. And while ordering your next drink the radio plays some forgotten song, Brenda Lee’s comin’ on strong.  Here’s my favorite track of several nights in 2016…


Slow to begin
since it’s a sin
I only want to see you
loaded

slow to pretend
only a friend
Ii only want to see you 
holding

love is the dealer
love is the drug
love is the dealer
love is the loaded gun

slow to begin
it only makes it
it only makes it
worse 
to be the prick

drunk on the phone
the whole night before 
I only want to see you
anymore 

love is the dealer 
love is the drug
love is the dealer
love is the loaded gun 

so shoot baby
shoot baby 
shoot aim it
shoot aim 
it’s too late yeah
too late yeah

love is the dealer 
love is the drug
love is needle 
love is damage done

done done…
