Haley Bonar Wants to Have a Word With Your ‘Stupid Face’

The track comes from her upcoming album 'Impossible Dream'

You might not have heard someone called a “stupid face” since you were in 7th grade, but somehow Haley Bonar makes the insult sound grown-up, even whimsical as she coos the words in a forceful whisper on her new song. The indie-pop track is an a mix of moody verses and piercing choruses, over a rapid heartbeat of drums and synths. “Stupid Face” appears on Bonar’s upcoming album Impossible Dream, out August 5th on GNDWIRE/Thirty Tigers (US).

The album is a hodgepodge of varying experiences from Haley’s life that she puts into her music and gives to the world, the singer/songwriter tells SPIN through email. To that point, she says “Once [my experiences] are released into the world, they do not belong to me anymore. The interpretation is all yours, therefore these stories are yours.”
