Sad Girls Aquatics Club - How Do I Get What I Want

This post was originally published in November 2018.

It’s a stick groove with a really straight bass line that does a great job setting up the chorus change; all of the elements here point directly to the hook. It’s a question, and a statement of intent. How Do I Get What I Want gives a sense of being lost in the possible, and that ripple effect of love and energy across the world when circumstance matches with purpose.

Sad Girls Aquatics Club have found a sound that delineates the lethargy apparent in the band name: the physical slowness of being in water, and the mental fatigue of chronic melancholy. It’s not an ode so much as it is statement of fact: the newest generation has no idea how to succeed, perhaps because personal success itself has been replaced by social attention.

Sad Girls Aquatics Club is a brand new duo out of Pittsburgh, PA. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist. Below that, we have included a link to their new video.
