Montreal’s dream pop saviors Sorry Girls announce debut album Deborah, share “One That You Want” single

I know a lot of people are fans of waiting, thinking the time building up to a date of an event or release makes that thing even more exciting. For most, however, patience is not the ability to wait but rather the ability to wait and remain pleasant, which is a tough sell to any angry bird constantly seeking instant gratification and spontaneous movement and stimulation.

One of Arbutus Records’ expecting acts, Sorry Girls, have been pleasantly patient. After cranking up anticipation over the past three years with a smattering of teasing tracks, Sorry Girls will release their debut album on October 18 on the much-loved Montreal label.

Sorry Girls is the curious duo of singer/songwriter Heather Foster Kirkpatrick and producer/songwriter Dylan Konrad Obront. Written and recorded by the two and mixed by TOPS’ David Carriere, their debut album Deborah builds nicely on last year’s “Easier” single, with even more impressive combos of cultured electro-pop textures and heartfelt narratives throughout.

Before you pre-order Deborah, check out the melodic, winsome first single “One That You Want,” which dials down the earnest dream pop of earlier songs but calls up the new pop of mid-period Human League. Catch the clean field-shot video below, created by Kirkpatrick and Lara Olanick:
