The Cavaliers – You’re Not The Same Girl

Tediously hip

The Cavaliers are promoting their second single release with a tediously hip piece of marketing involving two of this country’s current middle-class obsessions: graffiti art and environmental concerns.

You’re Not The Same Girl’s stencil artwork is being sprayed using a “clean” spray paint that will eventually wipe itself away, so all the viewing public will be left with is a vague sense of irritation without being able to pinpoint its origin. All rather like the song itself, which is a badly composed musical stencil of Pete Doherty and his jangling ilk, though, mercifully, it quickly fades from memory.
