Knife Bride – Smother (Make Me Suffer)

Today’s track of the day comes from Knife Bride with single Smother (Make Me Suffer)!

Knife Bride’s single Smother (Make Me Suffer) is great!

Vocalist Mollie Buckley said: “This is the flickery eye, heart racing, electric pulsing part of falling into sleep. I wanted to incorporate the word ‘smother’ into a song ever since being obsessed with the song ‘smother me’ by The Used from the age of 14 – the lyrical content is actually inspired as a response to this song. ‘smother (make me suffer)’ attempts to ‘poke fun’ at the male gaze. The chorus does this by saying “hope I stay fresh for you”, alluding to hoping my corpse is still beautiful, clean, and looking/smelling good – satirically commenting on being a subservient female and letting a man have his cake and eat it.”
