Whinnie Williams: “Break Hearts in Your Sleep” (2013)

Nottingham’s Whinnie Williams cultivates a similar niche of retro girl pop as does Zooey Deschenal in her duo She & Him, but “Break Hearts in Your Sleep” has a lyrical intelligence and a real hook of a chorus that’s a cut above.

Your love is just below the cliff, fall a little bit
The corpses of unlucky girls who thought they knew ya
And every bad relationship that ended in a mess like this
You shook it off, they meant nothing to ya
Hey, when your wicked eyes met mine
In the way I recognize, have you met your match this time?

You break hearts in your sleep
You dream while they weep and wake up to the sound of one more lover leaving
You break hearts in your sleep
So whats wrong with me?
I really want to sleep beside you, I’ve decided

I won’t forget the little words that haunted all those sorry girls who died of love as they hit the ocean
You give me all those Bambi eyes
But I know what they signify, a lonely boy scared of his emotions
Hey, we’re a similar design
You’re a mess and so am I, and you’ve met your match this time

You break hearts in your sleep
You dream while they weep and wake up to the sound of one more lover leaving
You break hearts in your sleep
So what’s wrong with me?
I really want to sleep beside you, I’ve decided

Deciding to post her song was easy; choosing a single pic of this super-photogenic blonde was much more difficult. A few finalists:
