Made Of Bricks

I first found out about Kate Nash when watching MTV at like seven am (about the only time they ever actually play music anymore...). There was a video for "Foundations" playing, and I really liked it. I love her poppy sound and British accent, her playful and catchy lyrics and, lol, her hair xD. She came across to me as a more melodic, less rap-ish, Lilly Allen. Another artist whom I like, and someday will get around to reviewing. She also has the same poppy piano vibe as early Regina Spektor.

Made Of Bricks is a great album, perfect for smiling along to, or listening to while having a picnic...it's just that kind of music.
Also, like Lilly Allen Nash brings a sense of irony to her music. Pairing the happiest melodies and catchiest tunes to some not-so-happy lyrics.

Lyrics:

Watching me like you never watched no one
Don't tell me that you didn't try to check out my bum
'cause I know that you did 'cause your friend told me that you like it

Gave me those pearls and I thought they were ugly
though you try and tell me that you never loved me
I know that you did 'cause you said it and you wrote it down

Dancing and discos, eating cheese on toast
yeah you make me merry make me very, very happy but you obviously,
you didn't want to stick around
Dancing at discos, eating cheese on toast
yeah you make me merry make me very,
very happy but you obviously, you didn't want to stick around

So I learnt from you, do do do da do do do do do do da do do do
So I learnt from you, do do do da do do do do do do da do do do

I can can be alone, yeah, I can watch a sunset, on my own

Sitting in restaurants, thought we were so grown up
But I know that we were not the people that we turned out to be
Chatting on the phone can't take back these
hourse but I won't regret 'cause I can grow
From where dirt used to be

Dancing at discos, eating cheese on toast
yeah you make me merry make me very,
very happy but you obviously, you didn't want to stick around
Dancing at discos, eating cheese on toast
yeah you make me merry make me very,
very happy but you obviously, you didn't want to stick around
