Seeker Lover Keeper - Even Though I'm A Woman (Video)

Sarah Blasko featured on Breaking More Waves in 2010.Now she returns, alongside two singer songwriter friends Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby with her project Seeker Lover Keeper and the single Even Though I’m A Woman.

Yesterday we published an article on how being the first to post something was sometimes important as a new music blog. Today we’re being completely contrary; this song was originally uploaded on You Tube May 19 2011 and has received over 250,000 hits so far. So. On. The. Case.

In our defence Even Though I’m A Woman only gets a release in UK and Europe on April 2nd this year, so as far as we’re concerned, although the internet’s global the physical placement of the record is local and as such is ‘new’.

With a piano refrain not dissimilar to something Regina Spektor might produce, this  song twists the concepts of love with the singer preferring the idea of missing someone more than being in love with the person themselves. “I think I was born to be in a state of longing, born to be wanting.” There’s a further twist with the video, which although Seeker Lover Keeper is three women, features a man mouthing the lyrics and apparently romanticising the idea of the one he misses. Will he phone her and destroy his fantasy or not?
