TVD Radar: High Waisted, Sick of Saying Sorry in stores 5/22

VIA PRESS RELEASE | High Waisted have never been afraid to ask for help, encouraging trusted friends to lend their creativity to the songs.

With the input of producers Tad Kubler (The Hold Steady) and Arun Bali (Saves the Day), Sick of Saying Sorry was born from scraps of paper scribbled on at 4 am riding the train from Brooklyn to Manhattan and coming to life in a steamy apartment on a broken acoustic guitar. Frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye would walk through snow to Ludlow street to play with guitarist Richey Rose (Wendy James, Tamaryn, Jennie Vee). Even in the dead of winter, bright, upbeat, summery music came easily, creating an album of many moods, with each song having its own set of rules.

Dye enlisted her old friend and keyboardist Mark Buzzard (The Format) to add final embellishments. The album in its final form is a shared creation and an act of love, with each hand involved leaving a distinct mark.

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 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.
