Mediocre unleash punchy new single/video ‘Pop Song Baby’

Originating in Los Angeles, queer Boston-based rock duo Mediocre announced their Dangerbird Records debut EP and lead single ‘To Know You’re Screwed is to Know a Lot’ last month. Today, Piper Torrison (she/they) and Keely Martin (she/her) are thrilled to share new album cut ‘Pop Song Baby’ and official video.

The punchy upbeat immediacy of ‘Pop Song Baby’ is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, at once expertly disguising and underlining the song’s meaningful lyrics which are delivered with a resigned sarcasm and ‘90s alt-rock melancholy.

The band shares, “We wanted to write a song that our teenage selves would blast in our bedrooms. As femme musicians growing up in a predominantly male music scene, we pulled from our frustrations of being underestimated and pigeon-holed into certain archetypes. This song and video explores those pressures.”
