Track Premiere: Tiny Stills – ‘The Sad Day Katy Perry Saved My Life’

Posted: by The Editor

In June, Tiny Stills dropped one of their best songs in the standalone single “Craigslist Bed.” It was a perfect summer powerpop anthem, and even the lyrics seemed to perfectly capture the feeling of being stuck indoors alone. Today they’re back with “The Sad Day Katy Perry Saved My Life,” and, even though it’s fall now, it’s sure to warm you up.

A jangly, sugar-sweet singalong, “The Sad Day” is a charming ode to finding someone who’ll “love my sad stories just the way they are.” And, like “Craigslist Bed,” it’s another example of Kailynn West’s ability to capture a universal feeling in her lyrics: “Keep me alive – the world is breaking my heart.” Check out the video below.
