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.”
