Sad, late-night masturbation has a home in the seedy underbelly of pop culture – but even though it comes hand in hand (lol) with hook-up culture, distracting yourself from FOMO, and (let’s be real) self-care, sad masturbation doesn’t have a fun pop anthem. How many more party songs about getting blackout drunk by breakfast or patting ourselves on the back for being the best consumers we can be, do we really need? If our culture is getting over gender and its construction, we should reclaim the acts, images, and ideas that constitute that culture’s shame. “Late Night Girls” takes a wide range of sounds and influences from the 20th century – Deux Trois’ own version of musically jerking off, probably. The single is what happens when three self-aware malcontents sit on the rampant, internet-induced loneliness of our times, and manage to preserve their sound. We’re past pop culture’s endless attempts to assimilate sex and gender into the confines it created over the course of the 20th century. Deux Trois’ ‘Late Night Girls’ is a song and a think piece. You can interpret its meat and its meaning by watching the video on YouTube and streaming the single on Soundcloud or Spotify.
