Back in August we announced the signing of Ottawa sweethearts dad sports with a pair of perfectly-crafted dream pop tunes “name & place” and “out 4 a breather.” Today the boys returns with a song that commands you to feel things about that haircut your ex gave you a few months back. “Alex and I were hanging in our basement while rocking haircuts that our exes gave us when we came up with the idea for the song,” says dad sports’ Miguel Plante. “It’s about how those haircuts outlasted the relationships.”
On “gf haircut” they run through several minutes of brightly-lit guitar pop before arriving at our favorite coda of 2020: a wistful wash of DIY Death Cab and twinkly bedroom emo catharsis. The video is exactly what you’d expect: fucking adorable, tracking the theme of the song with a lighthearted energy. “The original plan was to cut our actual hair in the vid,” says Plante. “But we all shaved our heads during the summer so we just got some funny wigs instead.”
Stream “gf haircut” here, and stay tuned for more from dad sports soon.
