Albertine Sarges - The Girls
Albertine Sarges' new single ‘The Girls’ is a knowing missive to feminist comrades, delivered atop the strutting angular pop of her band The Sticky Fingers: The Tina Weymouth basslines and minimalist guitars feel positively defiant as they carry an upbeat tale of a friendship with more of a carnal connection than might first appear. Written on a Midsummer night in the Finnish country side, ‘The Girls’ encourages everybody to shine in their own ways and give in to the sensuality of their bodies. In the video, “a rock SPA day” Sarges sings through the headrest of a mas-sage table whilst her backing singers appear behind her shoulders to answer the call and response parts. It’s follows the same comedic template as ‘Free Today’, the BBC6music playlisted single and debut release from ‘The Sticky Fingers.’ “My friend Harriet Rabe stood all night at the highest point of Helsinki and sent messages in Morse to the sea. She worked symbolic performances in the frame of art school. In that time we both got in touch for the first time with queer feminist circles and started to explore new ways of being ourselves. We spent midsummer in Finland. The eagerness, the picnics, butterflies at night. The Girls’ is the soundtrack to those moments when you really trust someone. It is also an expression of curiosity. What if we sank in deeper - into the wide apricot sky.” Directed and edited by Lo Selbo Cinematography: Max Hilsamer Costume, hair and make-up: Roman Ole Set assistance: Amande Dagod Cast: Lisa Baeyens, Shanice Ruby Bennett, Albertine Sarges, Freddie and Blixa Thanks Rachel and Roman for bringing your puppies!
Albertine Sarges - Oh My Love
Albertine Sarges' new single 'Oh My Love' taken from her debut album The Sticky Fingers out now via Moshi Moshi Records: Tender and fragile, just like the moment after a painfully ‘right’ decision, Oh My Love was written for rainy afternoons and broken hearts, for long drives and lonely nights. It's a song that longs to be brought home but instead lingers on in an unresolved harmony. It hurts so good. Albertine’s previous single The Girls - playlisted on 6Music - was a lyrically suggestive exposition of the early days of a budding relationship, Oh My Love is the follow up, telling a tale of heartache as the rubber hits the road. Amongst unforeseen circumstances of 2020, Albertine Sarges became a passionate bird watcher, and in her video for ‘Oh My Love’ she uses migrating cranes as a symbol for longing, love and loss. Albertine takes a twilight walk around Berlin’s notorious Kottbusser Tor, taking in the sights and sounds of work and play, collecting moody impressions of houses with cranes flying over them. Albertine is fond of the neighbourhood she’s frequented from childhood, “Kotti is where I grew up and I dearly love it: it's a symbol of the liveliness, the diversity and the misery of my neighborhood. It's where I meet my siblings for a quick Turkish lentil soup or to celebrate when school friends return home for festivities. It is also a place where I have fallen in and out of love. Kotti lets me live, and it gives space to many others. You can literally cut gelatinous cubes of memory out of every späti, tea place and traffic light there and put them in a box. When you show them to me, I will sob.” Directed and edited by Lo Selbo Cinematography: Max Hilsamer Costume, hair and make-up: Roman Ole Set assistance: Amande Dagod​
