Beach Bunny have announced their new EP Blame Game, will drop on January 15, 2021 via Mom+Pop Music. The album follows the band’s 2020 debut album Honeymoon. Blame Game takes aim at toxic masculinity, sexism and the emotional labor of unreliable relationships.
Along with the release announcement, the band has shared lead single “Good Girls (Don’t Get Used)” and its official music video. In both the song and video directed by Lua Borges and produced by Everybody’s Baby, Lili Trifilio, the front person and the creative force behind Beach Bunny, reclaims her power and dominance over romantic partners that try to play her. Last week, the band launched a racing browser video game featuring an 8-bit version of the new single. Players who complete the game quick enough win an exclusive download of the 8-bit song. Check it out here.
Lili Trifilio on “Good Girls (Don’t Get Used):”
“As a veteran of engaging with emotionally unavailable people, I wanted to create a sassy song that calls out players by talking down to them as if they were children, showing that poor communication skills and mind games are immature. It shifts the blame to the person that was acting disrespectful, instead of myself. The song also hammers home the point that I know my worth; I’m not afraid to call out players on their stupid behavior and I’m not going to tolerate being thrown around emotionally.”
