Today Sunniva Lingård aka Sassy 009 shares her new single, ‘Red Plum’ from her recently announced mixtape Heart Ego, out 22nd October via Luft Recordings. LISTEN + WATCH HERE.
The glitched new outing ‘Red Plum‘ plays on minimalism, relying on a handful of surging currents to bounce around the cavernous space before the atmosphere is cut through with squalling guitar. Speaking on her new track, Sassy 009 conveys: “Red Plum represents the uncompromising, unfiltered headspace that, although I don’t show it myself, it is felt deeply from the inside. The idea came out of frustration over being trapped in-between the need of knowing what goes on in everyone’s lives through my phone, and the unpleasant feeling of observing someone who deals with their pain very publicly.”
Sunni imparts one of her most intimate performances for the accompanying video, co-directed by her close collaborator Maria Hilde. Hilde explains on the video: “I love to indulge into Sassy 009s world, and with Red Plum I feel like we dived into the core, private and intimate.” The new single follows the mixtape’s stand-out tracks ‘Blue Racecar‘, ‘Here Comes The Weekend‘, and ‘Mystery Boy‘.
