Single Review – Aine Cahill feat. Courage – Blood Diamonds

Aine Cahill’s new single ‘Blood Diamonds’ feat producer Courage is the kind of smokey aired smirking track that seems laced with Lorde and Lana Del Ray style curled lip. A tale of selfishness in a capitalist world ‘Blood Diamond’ takes ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ to its inevitable realist conclusion. Simmering with 1940’s cigarette smoke blown in your face charm, lines like; ‘I don’t really care if no one understands, got my possessions, don’t need anybody else’ and ‘Don’t wear fake fur, only the real thing, I pair them with my pearls and all my blood diamond rings,’ will leave you with no doubt on the evil villain level of character at play here. ‘Blood Diamonds’ is surely one of Cahill’s best tracks to date.
