The Bernadettes returns with a new song, "Worthless Beautiful"

09/23/2020 01:07:50 PM

After more than a decade of absence, The Bernadettes returns with a new single titled “Worthless Beautiful.”

Released under Lilystars Records, the latest song is a fuzzy, garage rock anthem in a similar vein as their breakout 2009 single “Let’s Make Babies.” This time, though, the band documents life under the old normal, reminiscing about drinking the night away with like-minded individuals and enjoying freedom in the best way possible. 

“Worthless Beautiful deals with freedom in doing the things you want, the way you want it; no matter how wrong it might feel,” lead vocalist Paolo Angeles said of the song. “The result may be worthless, but there is beauty in its pursuit.”

With the uncertainty of the pandemic affecting the way people lead their lives, “Worthless Beautiful” may come off as a distillation of nostalgia, joy, and helplessness, all rolled into a party that never was. But things are different now, and the sentiments in the song only serve as a figment of a distant memory, a rallying cry in our self-imposed quarantine, a gut-deep wallowing in self-pity.

Taking into account the current social context, The Bernadettes’ latest track functions as both a pre-pandemic recollection and a bittersweet reminder of those years that held promises of eternal youth and fun—snotty punk rock and all.

Already out in the digital platforms last 23 September, “Worthless Beautiful” serves as the first of the four songs that the band has already finished recording with producer Dok Sergio at JNR Studios. The alt-rock outfit is set to release a full-length album next year. 
“The plan is to have the other 3 songs remastered and have them released intermittently,” revealed its frontman. “Of course, we would need to go back to the studio to record more songs. Maybe after the pandemic.”
