We recorded “Oops…!” at New Monkey, which was Elliott Smith’s studio. This one has a magic drum sound – thanks totally to engineer Sarah Tudzin (of Illuminati Hotties notoriety), and Zoë Brecher’s impeccable enjoying. Simply earlier than writing it, on tour with CHVRCHES, a venue worker turned bodily and verbally violent with one among my Speedy Ortiz bandmates. He directed his pretend apology at me as an alternative of the individual he harmed, presumably as a result of I’m smaller and current female.
My vengeance complicated kicked in and I acquired a scary adrenaline excessive ensuring this unsafe individual was faraway from the present. Whereas I’m glad I’ve protecting instincts, I wrote the track to course of methods through which I’ve used individuals’s assumptions about me and my physique to wield my very own model of poisonous masculinity. Kimber-Lee Alston, who directed remotely by way of Zoom, turned this story and track into an allegory a couple of 1950s promenade queen vampire who lures in her unhealthy boy victims with scrumptious, blood-filled treats.
