GIRLI embraces her weirdness in colourful ‘Deal With It’ music video

London’s very own brazen popstar GIRLI has released the music video for her latest single ‘Deal With It’.

The track is an electro-pop bop which embodies self-expression and youth. The video sees GIRLI in a mature yet ever colourful light and is appropriately packed with a punch of attitude.

On the new single, GIRLI explains that ‘Deal With It’ is about “embracing your weirdness and telling anyone who judges or questions your individuality to get over it.

“It’s about refusing to change who you are for other people and instead of saying that it’s their problem if they’re offended by who you are, not yours.”

Recently, GIRLI announced the release of her debut album ‘Odd One Out’, which is due on 5th April. The 9-track album marks the new mature alt-pop sound from GIRLI. Drawing inspiration from real life experiences, the album explores identity and the difficulties of adolescence.

‘Odd One Out’ will feature the previously-released ‘Hot Mess’, ‘Young’, and ‘Day Month Second’, which made it into QWEERIST’s top fifty singles of 2018.

Speaking about the album, GIRLI says: “All the songs on this album are about feeling different from others. There’s a song about being rejected in love, and how it made me feel like I wasn’t good enough to be loved like everyone else is.

“But this isn’t a sad album. These are happy songs because they’re part of me learning to love who I am. I’ve always felt like the odd one out, and chances are because you’re reading this, you have too. I hope when you listen to these songs, you hear things you relate to, and that they make you feel like you’re not alone.”

To coincide with its release GIRLI will be touring the UK in April.
