Last Saturday I went to get my hair cut for the first time in five months, and I couldn’t help but think of this song. Luckily, my stylist didn’t seem inclined toward using her scissors the way these ladies do, which I am grateful for. >.>;
The song itself is a solid duet with powerful vocals. It’s a post-breakup song where the two ladies deny that they’re getting their hair cut because of their broken hearts:
I’m cutting my hair short
It’s not because I broke up,
I’m not crying either
I’m doing this because it’s pretty (x)
The MV is where things get delightfully creepy, with the dead-eyed stares, floor-length hair, and a muted, murderous jealousy. How can you not love a video where Judith Beheading Holofernes by Caravaggio features prominently?
“Hair Short” is a great song that deserves a lot more attention than it has gotten, if YouTube counts are anything to go by. If you haven’t heard it yet, take a moment and enjoy it.
