Melinda Ortner – Sweet Little Lies

Melinda Ortner – Sweet Little Lies

‘Sweet Little Lies’ is taken form the debut EP ‘Strangers’ by silken voiced songstress Melinda Ortner which is due for release on 8thOctober. Melinda had a little to say about the origins of this song:

“Sweet Little Lies is an angsty, poetic statement and inner monologue that more girls than not have at one point related to…the headspin and mind game of getting led on by someone you think is fantastic…and then…nothing…And when you thought this one might be different. I’ll be fully candid here and say the subject of the story was from an online dating website. I was younger and much more stupid. Deep down, I knew the B.S. men pull for a little tail, and by the same token we girls eat it up knowing all too well it’s a load of crap but we do it anyways..for the chance that he’ll prove us wrong, or just because it still feels fucking good to be swooned, charmed and flattered. Fake sugar is just as sweet as the real shit right?”

That pretty much sums up the whole lyrical content which she sings with real passion. It’s a little bit pop and a little bit jazz with a dash of Indie guitars thrown in but wow that girl has a voice which puts me in mind of a very early Amy Winehouse before the drink and drugs era. 8.5/10
