Wildcard (week 30):
Baker Grace – Sad Summer

How is your summer, so far? Is it a time of joy where you go to the beach, hang out with friends, travel or just have a jubilant time in the sun? Or is it less exciting, and is that only made worse by what we see on social media? If you’re in the latter group, Baker Grace is with you.

The 18-year-old New Jersey pop songstress wrote a song that speaks to the introvert in all of us.Β “Sad Summer is an anthem for the people who need a break from social media”, she shares. “The pressure to be happy all the time, to look good all the time, and to always be doing something cool.”

The intro sounds like the theme song of an β€˜80s TV series. Then, Baker starts singing in a staccato style, reminiscent of Lizzo’s performance in Juice. Next, she comes up with a hook that’s unlikely to leave your brain anytime soon: β€œGonna be a sad sad summer, such a bummer / I could be falling in love but baby I don’t give a fuck.”

Eventually, Sad Summer is the ultimate anti-summer anthem. A colourful tune for the introverted Instagram generation of today. Also, it is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard! So maybe it isn’t such a sad summer for Baker Grace, after all.

In the Wildcards 2019 playlist you can find all of this year’s Carte Blanche Music Wildcards so far.
