Second album Orgone
Out 5th July on One Little Indian Records
“She could become an avant-scene star.” The Quietus
“s a r a s a r a is a captivating creative presence” The 405
The artist moved across the water from Paris to Margate at the beginning of last year, and the record was written there, featuring collaborative tracks with her neighbour, Peter Doherty of The Libertines. Today she shares ‘Tinkertoy’ featuring Peter Doherty – a brooding new track taken from the album.
“I’m not sure I can explain what happened with this song” said Sarasara. “Peter and I were talking about doing something together for a while. One evening, he knocked on my studio door, we had a lovely time and wrote ‘Tinkertoy’, then he said I was “a Siren” and he ran away.”
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.
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.”
Experimental, distinctive, and yet unmistakably ’Sarasara’ – Orgone moves effortlessly through moods and layers of textured sound with a tenacity to stay true to itself yet veer from the path-most-trodden. It is this resolve that sees Sarasara stand apart from the crowd.
