female rock group Sleater-Kinney today he gave us a new single called “Say It Like You Mean It”a song that goes for the romantic and a little sad side of the band, driven by an almost pompous drum rhythm.

In this song, the band reflects on the dissolution of a romantic relationship and the frustration that arises when your soon-to-be ex simply doesn’t give you a clean breakup, as in it we hear Corin Tucker sing: “Say it like you mean it, I need to hear it before you go, say it like you mean it, this goodbye hurts when you go…” while a cinematographic instrumental takes us through intense emotions, as if it were a pot about to explode.

At the same time, in the music video directed by herself Carrie Brownsteinwe see the talented actress Smith-Cameron distraught in a fancy restaurant, drinking martinis and flirting against her better judgment, as it tells the story of a woman who has lost her sense of what is appropriate. Well, as he adds Brownstein In a press release:

“Sick with the alienation that comes from existing in a disparate emotional state with the person or people closest to her, she struggles with debilitating loss, longs to be seen, and dares you to leave.”
