Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz released Slugger – her empowering and insanely fun debut solo album as Sad13 – last month. Today she shares the music video for her consent-is-sexy anthem “Get A Yes.” Inspired by ’90s-style group dance videos and late-night TV infomercials, Sad13 and friends prepare you for a night on the town with a step-by-step guide to consent.
Dupuis on the making of “Get A Yes”:
I wanted to make a tribute to ’90s-style group dance videos, and my childhood friend Patsy Gay, who spends her days as a dance archivist, put together a sample reel of choreography using moves from Spice Girls, Aaliyah, Salt-N-Pepa, Janet Jackson, and Jordan Knight vids…plus Stephanie Tanner and Urkel. Isabel Farrington, who directed the video, styled it as a late-night TV infomercial about teaching the dos and don’ts of getting consent to dance with your partner. We filled the video with tons of our friends and shot it over a couple days at Silent Barn.
Dupuis is currently on the first-ever Sad13 tour. See below to find a show near you and get your tickets now!
Slugger was written by Dupuis, mixed by Gabe Wax (Beirut, Wye Oak, Boots) and mastered by Emily Lazar (Sia, HAIM, Sky Ferreira).
