Sir Babygirl’s “Heels” is your latest queer pop gem
Kelsie Hogue got her inspiration to start making music from Lisa Simpson. "Lisa Simpson whispered to me through the television via her saxophone when I was five," the New Hampshire-based musician behind Sir Babygirl told Queer Women in Music Boston. Now she's planning a move to Brooklyn, and releasing her debut album as Sir Babygirl, Crush On Me, next year via Father/Daughter Records. She's shared the first single from it, "Heels," now; listen to it below.
Speaking to Notion Magazine, Kelsie said, "I wanted to revisit the sound of all my favourite early 2000s TRL-era pop heroines like Britney, Xtina, Avril and Ashlee but make it gay as hell." Pop definitely informs the sparkling, glossy sounds of "Heels" - there are parts reminiscent of Lorde or the flashiest parts of St. Vincent's MASSEDUCTION. Over a galloping beat, Kelsie's repeated chant of, "I changed my hair, I changed my hair, I changed my hair" invites you to shout along. It's a catchy, fun song that has us very much looking forward Crush On Me.
