Default Lemuria's Christine Perfect

[From an interview with the trio Lemuria, discussing their song "Christine Perfect"]

DCist

DCist: It sounds like the “Christine” you’re referring to in “Christine Perfect” is Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. Why do you consider yourself more of a Christine than a Stevie?

SO: There’s a couple of reasons but I feel like Christine McVie isn’t as popular to some people. I guess it’s all based on opinion. But for the most part I feel like Christine McVie is kind of like—it says in the song “second best” or whatever—I don’t feel that way about Fleetwood Mac. I feel like Christine McVie is my favorite. I can relate to her on that level where some of her songs aren’t as popular. Some of her songs aren’t as catchy for mainstream music as some of the other songs that either Lindsay or Stevie wrote but I lyrically relate to her and presence relate to her. Not to say that I view myself as second best but I think that I have a relationship with her more than I have a relationship with anyone else in Fleetwood Mac. At the time that I was writing that song it made sense that I could relate to her on that level.

She's one of us oddballs who really like Christine's vibe.

Christine has more catchier songs than Stevie or Lindsey. She is just too perfect and not as interesting.

It was a strange thing for Sheena Ozella to say that some of Christine's songs "aren't as catchy for mainstream music." I mean ... what??

If anything, maybe they're too mainstream.

Right and a lot of Stevie and Lindsey's song are eccentric to say the least.

Here's the song itself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X9I9MxgSmw

The lyrics begin with "I'm not a Stevie, I'm a Christine McVie." But then she says something about being "second best." Um ... what?

It's a perky little indie rock jangle guitar song, worth listening to once.

San Antonio Current by Matt Stieb, December 30, 2014

http://www.sacurrent.com/sanantonio/...nt?oid=2364023

Printed by Silver Sprocket, the comic also includes a cream colored seven-inch with exclusive cuts from Lemuria. On "Christine Perfect," singer Sheena Ozzella clarifies her place in rock 'n' roll. "I'm not a Stevie, I'm a Christine McVie," she sings, favoring the less flashy female member of Fleetwood Mac. Bassist Max Gregor navigates a binding line in a fat punk tone as the band relays two minutes of '90s-leaning indie gold.
