Drama-filled relationships, soda addiction, a passion for for anime and video games, and learning self-acceptance in the first steps of being a young adult. If it feels like a smorgasbord of relatable but all-together formative references and influences, it’s because it is. Introducing Bad Heather – the alter-ego of 20-year-old Utah native Porter Chapman, who coined his musical persona after the oh-so-stylish and sardonic 80s cult classic Heathers (we see you Christian Slater and Winona Ryder).
For anyone that’s ever wanted to tell their ex partner to do one after hearing barrage after barrage of insincere apologies, “Her Sorry” marks the latest track from the burgeoning producer and artist – a fizzy bedroom-pop offering, cementing Bad Heather’s unexpected and innovative musical identity.
“I wrote ‘Her Sorry’ about my toxic ex,” laments Bad Heather. “I was done with all of her drama, her lame excuses for being terrible to me and everyone around her. She was hedonistic to the point of being a sad cliché. Needless to say, I don’t miss her. This is one of the most direct songs I’ve ever written, but who doesn’t want to tell their terrible ex to fuck right off? The chorus is light and bubbly because I’m stoked to be rid of her. There’s also a hardcore punk vibe to the track. I thrashed the drums really hard on this one.”
And the visuals are a trippy fever dream which sees the artist trying to stay afloat in a swimming pool. We feel ya.
