Natalia Kills wants you to 'Activate My Heart' - watch the video premeire now!

"I am a woman standing next to a car"
Natalia Kills, the British recording lady whom US audiences may know from her recent gig opening for EFFING ROBYN, has a new song out.

It's ok. 

Like, it's not terrible by any means.  But it's also not particularly great.  We went on a whole tangent a couple weeks back about how Jessie J's single sounds like the tuneless R&B garbage that littered the pop landscape a few years ago, when being "authentic" and "street" was more important than a hook, and while 'Activate My Heart' doesn't quite scrape that soul-destroying barrel, it's not a long way off either.

It's kind of like if Rihanna's 'Rated R' album was a little more boring and had a little less budget.

So...there's that then.
