WATCH — Jessica Boudreaux’s ‘Televised’

September 6th, 2017


““Why should I care / Why should I play?,” Jessica Boudreaux scoffs exasperatedly at some poor bastard who has dared to do wrong by her.

And from there, the Summer Cannibals singer’s sneering new solo single “Televised” becomes one of the most self-assured, most icily detached kiss-offs imaginable. (“You were looking at me / I was looking at you / It was televised.”) Indeed, all that deliciously defiant indifference is fittingly laid over a cooly unsympathetic synth-funk-pop groove and a big, fat, unavoidable hook. It’s a striking diversion from her oeuvre of rocker-chick-chic.”
