We've found your new summer anthem.
'I Miss When I Smelled Like You' is girlpuppy's first release since her debut EP, Swan, last summer.
“Now that I’ve played festivals, one of the first things I think about is: ‘Will this be one that people dance to?’” Harvey explains. Inspired by HAIM and Stevie Nicks, girlpuppy set out to create a ‘70s-influenced summer jam, enlisting Maggie Rogers’ producer Doug Schadt and his Bushwick studio to lasso her vision. “I Miss When I Smelled Like You,” a stray line in Harvey’s songwriting notes, morphed into a yearning chorus: a pent-up desire for reconnection once love’s scent has faded. Over a sinuous yacht rock riff, radio country leads and intricate drums from Eric Slick, Harvey’s vocal glides with confidence. Its music video, the latest in girlpuppy’s collaborations with photographer Eat Humans, sees Harvey driving Atlanta’s cul-de-sacs, slaying at Guitar Hero, and skimming a Justine Kurland photo book—self-reclamations in the hazy wake of a break up.
As girlpuppy's Becca Harvey puts it, "It's a break-up song, but it's not depressing."
A break-up song that you can dance to.
