“Fixina” and “The Sting” music videos

December 4, 2017 11:01 am

Sad13 just shared, not one, but two new videos for tracks taken from her 2016 release, Slugger. Head over to YouTube and check out “Fixina” + “The Sting.”

“Our goal was to shoot a double feature, with videos by Grimes and Melanie Martinez as our inspiration. Zoloo and Vrinda came up with the concept that I’d play a monster in one video, and a monster hunter in the other–the two most sympathetic character types in fiction, in my opinion. We shot on a freezing cold roof, on a lake in a snowstorm, bribed some Elmos to hang out, and of course we gave both the monster and the monster hunter plenty of glittery looks.” – Sadie Dupuis

Tracked in my mom’s kitchen from 10 pm – 5 am, overdubs and mixing with our touring sound engineer Danielle DePalma at Seaside Lounge. Sad13’s live drummer Zoë Brecher appears on a recording for the first time. Chad Clark of Beauty Pill/Smart Went Crazy mastered the song.”

Sad13 covers Carole King’s “It’s Too Late”

April 20, 2017 12:42 pm

Head over to Stereogum & hear Sad13’s cover of Carole King’s “It’s Too Late”!

The track is part of the first volume of GRLMIC, a new foundation that “aims to support and empower a diverse spectrum of young women/non-binary youth through music.” All proceeds of their covers compilation will go to Planned Parenthood and the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls.

“Sadie Dupuis uses the same sparkling synths that marked the Speedy Ortiz leader’s solo debut Slugger to pull the ’70s song into a more modern frame of reference while still retaining its charms.”
