Back in 2006, Sandi Thom defiantly strode on to the music scene with her debut single I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in my Hair) which soared to the top of the charts in the UK, Australia and Ireland, and also paved the way for a UK #1 album with Smile… It Confuses People.
Whilst the record also produced a second Top 40 hit with the really very good What If I’m Right, the momentum didn’t carry through to the Scottish singer-songwriter’s sophomore effort The Pink & the Lily which peaked at #25 on the album chart a few years later – no thanks to a media backlash and label troubles, which Sandi wrote about in a great piece for The Daily Beast last year.
Fast forward to 2015 and the 34 year old is getting ready to deliver her sixth studio album, Weapons of Past Destruction which will make an appearance in early 2016. From it, she has just premiered the lyric video for the record’s lead cut Earthquake which somehow turns the painful experience of being unceremoniously dumped in to a big, guitar-led pop song.
It comes out 27 November and you can sing along to your broken heart’s content with the lyric video below.
