“Breakfast for 2” EP
Suicide Squeeze

Listening to “Breakfast for 2” feels like a Sunday morning in Long Beach, waking up to the sea breeze and overcast skies with the victorious partiers from the long night before—it’s the perfect accompaniment to a stroll through the neighborhood to the diner at 11:30 AM. On this single, SadGirl explore the regrets that come with lingering indecision while also paying tribute to their influences—“Jack The Ripper” is a cover of Link Ray’s classic. [Done in part as tribute to Charlie Megira as well—ed.] You can almost see the stream rising off of the coffee, and watch the thoughts racing behind half-awake eyes. If there is a comparison to be made here, SadGirl might remind you of Tijuana Panthers on quaaludes—but in the best way possible, of course. It’s surf-y and dreamy, hazy and liquid—like a swell in the ocean, not the waves breaking on shore. Encouraging infidelity has never seemed as endearing as it seems on “Breakfast for 2.” SadGirl know how to make temptation an attractive proposition.
