Got A Girl, “I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now”
Got A Girl
I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now
Got A Girl came to fruition when Dan “The Automator” Nakamura (Gorillaz, Deltron 3030) was working on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, met Mary Elizabeth Winstead—who induced severe swooning in her role as Ramona Flowers—and both thought, “Why the hell not make music together?” The resulting product from the unexpected duo does not disappoint. The actress delivers sweet, yet direct vocals to float atop Nakamura’s uncanny talent for creating detailed worlds within his music. “Did We Live Too Fast” oozes bourgeois 1960s yacht party. “Everywhere I Go” transports listeners to a dimly lit, slightly eerie venue. Video game blips on “Da Da Da” clink underneath Winstead’s angst-filled lyrics: “This song is shit” and “I don’t wanna sing this fucking song.” While each singular track has a different flavor, I Love You But… is held together by a uniform spirit and feels near-seamless in its offering.
