S A R A S A R A

“Really unnerving in the best way.” The Fader

“She could become an avant-scene star.” The Quietus

“s a r a s a r a is a captivating creative presence” The 405

Boundary-pushing artist and producer Sarasara returns with captivating second album Orgone, out on 5th July via One Little Indian Records, co-produced with Liam Howe of labelmates Sneaker Pimps (who has worked on albums by Nülifer Yanya, FKA Twigs, Tom Vek, Lana Del Rey etc). 

Sarasara released her debut album Amor Fati to acclaim from The Fader, The Guardian, The 405 and more – as experimental as it is versatile, taking in elements of industrial electronica, trip-hop, r’n’b and breaks. Her latest body of work sees her explore further her unique breed of leftfield, avant-garde RnB, singing in her mother tongue, French, and dealing with suicidal thoughts, existentialism and meditation. She directly addresses the former on album opener ‘Flatline’, describing an incredibly difficult period she experienced. “I was stuck in very dark place after losing all grounding and certainty about the future, I was praying for somebody to come and save me. I am dedicating the song to the person who saved my life, literally, and became my best friend.”

The enigmatic artist found peace through meditation, faith, and learning how to live in the present – a theme that runs consistently through Orgone. She sings about vulnerability, accepting yourself, and surrendering to things we have no control over. She says this was “a lesson I had to learn the hard way.”
