New Music – Get A Yes / Sad13

Speedy Ortiz began as a bedroom project for Sadie Dupuis, so it only make sense that her first solo album comes full circle with ‘Get A Yes’. It distances itself from the guitars and the indie-rock and is instead made up of sparkly glitter-pop with synthetic drums and spiralling synths and above all, an emphasis on the vocals and lyrics. How many other songs have been sung about consent being sexy? And why haven’t more been made? ‘If you want to / You’ve got to get a yes’ goes the chorus, as the guitar makes an entrance in the most subtle way, still overdriven, but stuck underneath the bubbly synths. It’s a fun song, with a message worth listening to. It also might be a good way to tide over any Speedy Ortiz fans.
