video premiere: Sorry Girls – Waking Up
Montreal duo Heather Foster Kirkpatrick + Dylan Konrad Obront aka Sorry Girls share the minimal but vibrant Bronwyn Ford + Max Taeuschel-co-directed visuals for their new single "Waking Up", taken from the group's stellar new double A-side Easier 7", out today on Arbutus. Sorry Girls' sound has been described as something close to approaching Springsteen meets TOPS, which is about as lofty as a comparison can get around here, but I challenge anyone to come up with a more accurate description for the heartfelt "Waking Up", a glorious, uplifting wave of early '80s FM synth-power-pop nostalgia tinged with regret and hope. Sorry Girls tell us about the relatable sentiment behind the song:
"Waking Up describes the feeling of being stuck in a situation that feels helpless and never-ending and ultimately realizing it doesn’t have to be that way. The song is about allowing yourself to break out of the world you feel suffocated by to create the one that you want."
