Sorry share new song 'Jealous Guy'
21st March 2019
North London’s Sorry have today shared their new track and video ‘Jealous Guy’ . ‘Jealous Guy’ is Sorry’s first new music of 2019, following their acclaimed 7” ‘Showgirl’/’Twinkle’, which received glowing praise from Pitchfork and Dazed, and saw the band perform live for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 Music - and ‘Starstruck, a track that caught the eye of BBC Radio 1, seeing multiple plays across the station this year and last.
A sideways look at the John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band song of the same name, ‘Jealous Guy’s buoyant tone finds a perfect juxtaposition cut with principal songwriters and vocalists Asha Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen’s sly and witty lyrics: “I'm just a jealous guy, watch out.” The riotous video for ‘Jealous Guy’, premiered today via Noisey, was directed by the band’s Asha, frequent Sorry visuals collaborator Flo Webb - the pair operate under the Flasha moniker - and Jasper Cable-Alexander. Asha explains, “We played on the saxophone idea - I guess like a Madness or The Specials video or like the blues brothers, sharply dressed and funny, interesting shots of us about town. The theme of jealousy runs through the video and the last shot is Asha killing Louis due to her jealousy.”
Centred around Asha and O'Bryen, two 20 and 21-year-old childhood best friends, Sorry were signed by Domino after developing a reputation as the most thrilling new band on London’s underground circuit. Sorry’s lineup is completed by Lincoln Barrett on drums and bassist Campbell Baum.
