Oops…! will seem on Sadie Dupuis’ sophomore report, ‘Haunted Portray’, which is due out on September 25 by means of her personal Wax 9 label.
It follows the beforehand shared tracks WTD? and Ghost (Of A Good Time). Discussing the inspiration behind the tune, the Speedy Ortiz vocalist stated:
“We recorded ‘Oops…!’ at New Monkey, which was Elliott Smith’s studio. This one has a magic drum sound — thanks completely to engineer Sarah Tudzin (of Illuminati Hotties notoriety), and Zoë Brecher’s impeccable enjoying.
Simply earlier than writing it, on tour with Chvrches, a venue worker turned bodily and verbally violent with one in all my Speedy Ortiz bandmates. He directed his faux apology at me as a substitute of the particular person he harmed, presumably as a result of I’m smaller and current female.
My vengeance complicated kicked in and I bought a scary adrenaline excessive ensuring this unsafe particular person was faraway from the present.
Whereas I’m glad I’ve protecting instincts, I wrote the tune to course of methods during which I’ve used folks’s assumptions about me and my physique to wield my very own model of poisonous masculinity.
Kimber-Lee Alston, who directed remotely through Zoom, turned this story and tune into an allegory a few 1950s promenade queen vampire who lures in her unhealthy boy victims with scrumptious, blood-filled treats.”
