“Get A Yes” music video

December 6, 2016 11:29 am

Watch Sad13’s new video for “Get A Yes” via Pitchfork. Your new step-by-step guide to consent. Directed by Isabel Farrington.

Sadie Dupuis on the video: “I wanted to make a tribute to ’90s-style group dance videos, and my childhood friend Patsy Gay, who spends her days as a dance archivist, put together a sample reel of choreography using moves from Spice Girls, Aaliyah, Salt-N-Pepa, Janet Jackson, and Jordan Knight vids… plus Stephanie Tanner and Urkel. Isabel Farrington, who directed the video, styled it as a late-night TV infomercial about teaching the dos and don’ts of getting consent to dance with your partner. We filled the video with tons of our friends and shot it over a couple days at Silent Barn.”

Only a few dates left on Sad13’s first North American tour. Catch her in a city near you!

Sad13’s “Slugger” out today!

November 11, 2016 10:34 am

“I wanted to make songs that were the opposite of ‘Genie in A Bottle’ or ‘The Boy Is Mine.’ Songs that put affirmative consent at the heart of the subject matter and emphasize friendship among women and try to deescalate the toxic jealousy and ownership that are often centered in romantic pop songs.” — Sadie Dupuis

Slugger is eleven tracks of unapologetic fun, fusing synth melodies with smooth guitar riffs. After Sadie moved to Philadelphia in early 2016, Slugger quickly began to take shape: “I wrote and played and recorded almost all of it in the two weeks I was subletting a friend’s tiny bedroom,” she says. Fittingly, directness, self-determinism, and intimacy are the bedrocks of Slugger’s overall tone. Sadie maintains her dignified wit even in less-than-ideal entanglements, as on the album’s opening track, “<2,” styled to resemble the level of affection of which a heart is capable when it’s been twisted out of shape. “I’m in less than two with you,” sings Dupuis, her crystalline voice steadfastly delicate and assured, recalling self-proprietary forebears like Liz Phair and Fiona Apple.

Sad13’s debut record Slugger is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming now via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive limited edition Sad13 sticker sheets with the purchase of Slugger, while supplies last.

sad13’s “slugger” streaming now!

November 3, 2016 11:19 am

“Sadie Dupuis has earned a reputation for her dynamic, literary lyrics and the way they regularly toggle between knotty linguistic wordplay and knife-twisting one-liners that cut straight to the bone. Yet she writes with considered purpose: Regardless of whether she’s ruminating over her vulnerabilities, revealing personal details of past toxic relationships or lifting people up with ferocious rallying cries, Dupuis doesn’t mince her words. Even amid the fizzy pop embellishments that make Slugger so infectiously fun to listen to, Sad13 is thankfully as unapologetic and vital a voice as ever.”

Head over to NPR Music to stream Sad13’s debut Slugger a week early! Album out next Friday. Pre-orders still available on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Sad13 shares third single “Devil In U”

October 19, 2016 12:49 pm

“It’s about constraining your life to avoid conflict in the face of emotional abuse. You cut yourself off from your support systems and passions to prevent and assuage your partner’s irrational reactions; you force yourself to fit another person’s definition of ‘angelic’ so as not to provoke their ‘devilish’ side. But no devil is worth your care if they don’t love and support you for who you are. And if the ‘Devil In U’ causes you to hurt someone you supposedly love, maybe you’re just the devil, period.” — Sadie Dupuis

Sad13 is back with the third single from her forthcoming debut, Slugger, out November 11th. Give “Devil In U” a listen below.
