Sex And Love Grenades

One difference between men and women is that women like to like the people they fuck and men don’t give a fuck. I was surprised when Elizabeth Wight called herself a romantic during the interview in Halloween -surely the WHOLE POINT of a dance rock band is sex not love -I mean, she called em Love Grenades but she mean Fuck Grenades, right? Right? Post-feminist girl singer can fuck you and forget you and she can do it to a mechanical bass hook that’ll drive you wild.

But if that was the entire Love Grenades story it wouldn’t be very interesting. After the interview I felt that Bret and I had gotten the story, now I’m not so sure we did. For one thing, some of the questions that needed to be posed were so dicey I didn’t have the heart to pose em. How far can you delve into a troubled childhood? How does it reflect on music when the hunger for love and trust is synonymous with the hunger for family?

Wight’s sexuality is front and center in Love Grenades but it isn’t what it appears to be. We are seeing the grenades fine but the love we (I) am missing out on. With the exception of “Tigers In The Fire” the lyrics are love lyrics hidden in a loss that has lead to… promiscuity? Let’s say sexual ambiguity.Also, as explained on a previous post, even “Tigers” is a falsehood, she’s lobbing the grenade while hiding the love. “Come on take me by the hand… You’re the only one the son of a gun” But he has gone and she is shoving off to sea aloooone. The third of her songs is “Young Lovers” and again she has lost the guy, “Back in your arms forever… I IMAGINE I’m the one” she sings and the hook is she can be with whoever but she wants the HIM forever. Wight discussed writing the songs after a bad break-up. She is dancing on her blues.

How important this will be for Wight and Love Grenades depends upon what happens next. I can see her career following her parents careers into oblivion or I can see it being very successful. I don’t see it being ordinary.
