GIRL

Sad Songs for Happy People

Matemade presents: Girl by Sad Songs for Happy People

Hailing from Amsterdam, the ‘Sad Songs for Happy People’ return with EP '02' - a bittersweet tryptic of new wave tunes.
The video for the opening track, the gender-agnostic ‘GIRL’ is lip-synced by a boy and features swaying men in skirts, hazy 80’s synths and grieving lyrics about acceptance, placed in an eerie setting that steals unapologetically, from Lynch and Kubrick’s best cinema.

"A bittersweet tryptic of new wave tunes."
