s a r a s a r a’s sound is an stormy yet ethereal masterpiece. Making, dark, atmospheric electronica, s a r a s a r a uses her glitchy pop sound to explore everything from a sometimes agonising existence to epiphanies and uplifting emotions. Her sound, inspired by the likes of Bjork, Aphex Twin, Nick Cave and Vanessa Paradis, has been worked to new levels in her debut album “Amor Fati” released on 11th November (co-produced by Matthew Herbert), where her breathy vocals and dynamic sound structures cross a full spectrum of emotions and mark her as a boundary pushing artist, with her industrial electronica, trip-hop and R&B breaks creating experimental masterpieces.
In her slick and entrancing video for her new track “Supernova”, s a r a s a r a shows her and her dancers pace out enthralling choreography in the morning dawn light, through to the depths of night. Exploring how the growth and changing of human relationships isn’t too dissimilar to the birth of a supernova through the track and video, s a r a s a r a says “a supernovae is at the same time, the dramatic and catastrophic last stage of the life of a star system, and also an event that allows matter to expend, and triggers the formation of brand new stars. It’s the eternal cycle of life. Everything lives and dies to give birth to new things, it’s true for everything in the universe, physical, immaterial, the biggest thing, the tiniest thing, us in the middle, our feelings are no exception. This song is about the unconditional acceptance of this.”
s a r a s a r a’s first headline show is at Old Blue Last, London on November 21st.
