    Don’t get on Lizzy Rose’s bad side, or she might write a withering song that makes you want to run for the hills in shame or terror or some mixture of both. That’s what Rose has given us — and some unlucky somebody — with her new single “Walk the Walk (You’re a Whore)”. If your ex built a carnival ride just for you and forced you to sit on it until you learned your lesson, this is the song that would be playing on that ride.

    “’Walk the Walk (You’re a Whore)’ was not so much written as contracted,” Rose explains. “Broken promises, scorched friendships, and the wear and tear of everyday living gave this song fertile ground to breed and birth it’s caustic, saccharine melody.” The former frontwoman of weirdo indie-pop outfit Vitamins, Rose also toured with The Flaming Lips on their Dark Side of the Moon tour. Her own sound isn’t that far off from The Flaming Lips, though she’s quickly forging an idiosyncratic identity as a solo performer.

    “Walk the Walk (You’re a Whore)” comes with an accompanying video that, among other things, gives Rose a chance to show off her baking skills. The image of her smearing raw eggs on a hapless gentleman is enough to convince us never to invite her into our kitchen here at CoS. She’s definitely welcome to stop by the office for a live performance, though.
