Royal & The Serpent – I’m Not Sorry

Nowadays, it’s more important than ever for an artist to pull the listener into their song within seconds. Opening with the lyric ‘Hey, it’s a beautiful day to be an asshole’, will do the trick, I guess. This is the case with Royal & The Serpent’s new single I’m Not Sorry. A dark, intense, sometimes even manic song with trippy guitars. Somehow, it reminds me of Maybe An Angel by Heather Nova.

Elsewhere, the song includes lyrics like ‘I wanna kill everybody, I’m not sorry’. That’s not meant to be taken literally though, there’s a deeper meaning. In an interview with Papermag, Ryan Santiago (her real name) says: “It’s about being unapologetic in our imperfections, and unafraid to speak up and seek help when we know we need it most.”

I’m Not Sorry comes with a creepy video, for which Royal & The Serpent transformed herself into the Joker.
