Australian indie darling Courtney Barnett has been putting up billboards all over the world with the words “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party” in a font that can be described as “Drake-ian.” The phrase is a track title from her most-recent album Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit, and fans were right to suspect that it would be her next single. What couldn’t be predicted is the way she would roll it out… a surprise show at a London subway station.
Barnett put on a surprise performance of the song in front of commuters at the Camden Town station, and created a music video out of her own footage and the cell phone footage of audience members.
The setting (and idea of commuters taking a break from their trek to rock out) is perfect for Barnett’s form of slack-rock, which deals extensively with banal topics like commuting and office work.
Sometimes is out now on Milk Records.
