BABY JEY – “WHAT’S THE POINT OF SAYING SORRY”
Baby Jey is an Edmonton indie pop band who wear their love of classic disco and synth-pop music on their sleeves. “What’s the Point of Saying Sorry,” the lead single from their upcoming LP, Crop Circles, was recorded using vintage keyboards from the 80s and 90s, the Korg M1 and the Yamaha Motif ES7.
Baby Jey’s members were raised on the Canadian prairie, only to spend their college years studying and playing shows in the urban jungle of New York, finally moving back to their home of Alberta amidst the frenzy of the global pandemic.
Their sophomore album, Crop Circles, blends spacey synthesizers, cosmic samples, and subtle hints towards their prairie upbringing, including pedal steel guitar. Crop Circles will be released in full on November 24th.
Saying sorry can be important but spoken language isn’t the only way that people communicate. I like the fact that this song has two meanings.
Some people listen to the song and think it’s about someone who is bitter, saying ‘who cares that I’m hurt, as long as we’re sleeping together, then everything must be fine.’
But other people take a straight up understanding of the lyrics – that words can only say so much. There are things we can express with physical touch that are also emotionally powerful.
“What’s the Point of Saying Sorry” draws inspiration from both classic and organ house of the 80s and 90s, and was recorded using vintage keyboards from that era: the Korg M1 and the Yamaha Motif ES7.
