A NOTE FROM AMY & EMILY

Help us make the “Happy In The Sorrow Key” video!

We’re asking our fans to join us in making the music video for the lead single from our new album “One Lost Day,” out June 2nd on Vanguard Records / IG Recordings. Our plan is to make a karaoke video from the submissions, and share it with you in mid-June.

It’s simple:
1) Take a 15-second video on Instagram of you solo or with family, friends, pets, etc. and in a fun location singing along to your favorite part of “Happy In The Sorrow Key” – or your best air guitar solo to the instrumental section at the end of the song!
2) Upload the video to Instagram and tag @indigogirlsmusic and #happyinthesorrowkey
3) We do the rest!

“Happy In The Sorrow Key” lyrics:
As I lay my burden down
In the cradle of an elegy
In the shotgun shape of this life
I’m happy happy in the sorrow key

Hadrian’s wall was mighty
Not so mighty it didn’t fall
Ii roamed among its sod and stone
To wonder how we come apart
The earth it holds the human toll
The heavens bow to the gravity
The bursting heart the bleeding brain
In grief we shift tectonically

As I lay my burden down
In the cradle of an elegy
In the shotgun shape of this life
I’m happy happy in the sorrow key

Three days moored in Singapore
The ancient lure of currency
The rain came down the trade winds blew
And held me anchored to my dues
Slumbering I felt a tug
I ran to little India
To find a beggar’s clarity
And eat the spice of deities

When I close my eyes
Imagine us dead and gone
The bright light of kingdom come
But I can’t see
Take it out of my hands
I want to know the truth
The eye of the eagle
To deliver me
I’m happy in the sorrow key
I’m happy in the sorrow
