Gabrielle Aplin - Romeo Must Die

It's Valentine's day today and as we promised on Saturday this blog will be free from Valentine songs, or at least the sugary sweet ones. Instead we have a tune with an unromantic sentiment from the adorable Gabrielle Aplin.

2012 is shaping up very nicely indeed for Gabrielle following the iTunes chart success of her Home EP. Last night she supported Gotye at the fantastically decrepit and atmospheric Wilton’s Music Hall in London (which has just received a £700,000 funding boost to help conserve and protect the last surviving Grand Music Hall in the world) and has her own upcoming tour, a number of dates of which have now sold out. She has also been confirmed for two of Breaking More Waves favourite festivals - Camp Bestival and Bestival 2012.

The Home EP was originally just available on iTunes but has now been released on a variety of other online stores including Amazon and Napster. Gabrielle is also streaming the whole EP on Soundcloud, whereas previously just the title track was available. To celebrate this we’re featuring another track from the EP below. Romeo Must Die shows a different side to Aplin from Home. If you thought that Home was too sweet and delicate for your tastes then you might prefer Romeo Must Die – bolstered with a full band this break up song finds Aplin firmly closing the door on a relationship. “For you and I are past our dancing days,” she sings. “I don’t have time to watch you cry, for Romeo must die.” Ouch. Boys you’ve been warned – Gabrielle appears to be no pushover as a girlfriend. 

Whatever your situation today, be it in a romantic couple, new mismatched lovers who can't agree on how you approach Valentine's day or single and on your own - remember that nothing lasts forever. So enjoy what you have whilst it lasts, whatever it is.
