Gabriella Cilmi: 'Hearts Don't Lie'

By
Gabriella Cilmi 'Hearts Don't Lie'
Released on Monday, Jun 7 2010

If Gab's proved anything, it's that you're never too young to reinvent yourself. After rocketing into the top ten with stomping comeback hit 'On A Mission', the Aussie songbird is going retro again - and this time she's ditched the Barbarella-style silver spandex in favour of a slinky little disco number.

"Tell me that you really want me / I need you b-b-baby tonight," she purrs here, as Xenomania supply a trembling bassline that wouldn't sound out of place on a Boney M record. Cilmi certainly wasn't fibbing when she described 'Hearts Don't Lie' as having "a modern disco sound and a Bee Gees-inspired chorus" - and her glorious falsetto on said chorus is matched by the infectious "my heartbeat's ticking" hook, resulting in a track as catchy as it is downright phonkay.
