Strawberry Switchblade - Strawberry Switchblade (Korova)

There's something incredibly twee about two girls, ribbons in their hair, buried in polka dots, who sing sickly sweet love songs with lyrics like 'then I get myself a glass of milk' - but there's something quite appealing as well. Every song here has an irresistibly catchy tune: some, like the last two singles, get a bit irritating after a while, but others, like the sad 'Who Knows What love Is?', are quite lovely.
