High Waisted, the NYC duo of Jessica Louise Dye (vox/guitar) and Jono Bernstein (drums) are set to release Sick of Saying Sorry on 5/22. Was hoping to catch them down in Austin as their music has a knack for putting a smile on my face. Here’s some info on the album from the PR team.

While High Waisted’s first record was about being the life of the party, their sophomore album embodies what happens when you leave that party at dawn to go home to your tiny apartment, alone. High Waisted’s music has always been sad songs disguised as happy ones, and the tracks on the new record follow the same pattern. “Songwriting is like spell casting,” Dye front-woman and guitarist, writes, “It would be too painful to get on the stage night after night and relive each trauma I pulled from for writing inspiration.” Songwriting to her is like a time machine, getting to “rewrite history and edit out the parts that are too heavy to bear. I get to finally say all the things I wish I had.” Sick of Saying Sorry is an unapologetic record about finding hope in a hopeless situation and the strength to get up when the world is screaming at you to stay down.
