Montreal duo Sorry Girls, made up of Heather Foster Kirkpatrick and Dylan Konrad Obront, will release their new album Bravo! on June 2 via Arbutus Records. Now they are sharing their new single and video ‘Prettier Things’.
On the single, the band said “This song is about the power of honesty, especially being honest with yourself. On the one hand it’s kind of criticizing the idea of hiding behind prettier truths and pretending you’re okay when you’re not, on the other hand it’s also saying it’s okay to move on to better things and that only you can know and decide.”
Sorry Girls have danced out of the darkness into the light. Since forming in 2015, the Montreal duo of Heather Foster Kirkpatrick and Dylan Konrad Obront transformed an eerie, dreamlike sound into lush, pleasure seeking pop. Expanding upon their debut album, Deborah, the band’s deftly arranged sophomore LP, Bravo!, sings to the back rows of the stadium, drawing listeners inward with a newfound focus on personal lyrics.
“These songs are all about self-acceptance, self-affirmation, personal freedom, and letting go,” says Kirkpatrick. “There are a lot of lyrics about the creative process itself, identity shaping, and how those things intertwine.”
