SAD13 Shares Single/Video For “Oops…!”

Sadie Dupuis announced her self-produced sophomore solo album as Sad13, out September 25, a few weeks ago, sharing its lead single “Ghost (Of A Good Time.)” Now she releases another single off of the record, the syncopated and swaggering “Oops…!” Listen to the song and watch its Kimber-Lee Alston-directed video below and read more about it from Dupuis: 

“We recorded “Oops…!” at New Monkey, which was Elliott Smith’s studio. This one has a magic drum sound – thanks entirely to engineer Sarah Tudzin (of Illuminati Hotties notoriety), and Zoë Brecher’s impeccable playing. Just before writing it, on tour with CHVRCHES, a venue employee became physically and verbally violent with one of my Speedy Ortiz bandmates. He directed his fake apology at me instead of the person he harmed, presumably because I am smaller and present feminine. My vengeance complex kicked in and I got a scary adrenaline high making sure this unsafe person was removed from the show. While I’m glad I have protective instincts, I wrote the song to process ways in which I’ve used people’s assumptions about me and my body to wield my own version of toxic masculinity. Kimber-Lee Alston, who directed remotely via Zoom, turned this story and song into an allegory about a 1950s prom queen vampire who lures in her bad boy victims with delicious, blood-filled treats.”
