Indie art-pop duo Little Fuss have released “Guardian Angel,” the second single taken from their cinematic, nine-chapter concept album, Girls At Parties. The new single follows the story of a young woman, drunk and crying in front of a bathroom mirror, reeling from the news that the person she desires has left the party with someone else. Listen to it now below.
Simultaneously sincere and whimsical, “Guardian Angel” is a captivating snapshot of unrequited love and the grief that it can cause. Swirling vividly around the misery of the song’s protagonist, the 90’s power-pop-twinged is a searing commentary on grief that highlights the creative versatility of Olivia Martinez and Cody Von Lehmden – the duo behind Little Fuss – as artists and storytellers.
The second chapter from Girls At Parties – a profoundly emotional psychological journey that explores the perspectives and experiences of nine apprehensive interconnected characters navigating a social gathering – “Guardian Angel” captures the dizzying intensity of the ever-changing world during young adulthood. As unnerving as it is beautiful, the track expands the universe of Girls At Parties, revealing the first of eight girls who represent the past lives of the omnipotent, all-knowing narrator introduced in the title track for the debut LP.
