If you weren’t aware, we here at CoS were pretty involved with James Bond this week. Particularly of interest? The theme songs, which ranged from absolute jams to some … well … we don’t need to mention some of them. The songs on this list, however, pack some real punch, without a stinker amongst them. Take a look through and you might even find your own personal theme song.
10. Noun – “Loveblood”
If her new solo album is anything to go by, I bet Marissa Paternoster had an incredible Halloween. The Screaming Females frontwoman has taken to her solo project, Noun, to drop a 10-track album gruesomely titled Throw Your Body on the Gears and Stop the Machine with Your Blood. On the second track, “Loveblood”, Paternoster does a great impression of a sentimental zombie, moaning “I want your love, I want your blood” over grainy synths, scraping guitars and a supremely catchy rhythm. Paternoster’s lyrics are dark and dramatic: “It’s on your skin, this mess I’m in, sip too sour,” she sings. “And it all depends on how I spend my last hour.” –Karen Gwee
