favourite acts of this year's great escape ! // the quietus
" ... "songstress” doesn’t fit sarasara either, whose set at latest music bar on friday evening is very much a part of the great escape’s proverbial undercard. but the lille-born songwriter, who’s worked with odd-beats-and-pieces master matthew herbert, quite evidently has little enthusiasm for conforming to expectation ...

my video for SUN is out via tsugi magazine
" ... my lover wants me dead : si la vie sentimentale de s a r a s a r a n’a pas l’air évidente ( c’est le cas de le dire ) à en croire les paroles de sun, on ne peut qu’imaginer une vengeance des plus terribles en regardant son clip ... "

" ... s a r a s a r a's album is called amor fati and here she talks to the 405 about the process of creating it. ..."
the guardian // new band of the week : gorgeous but outlandish glitchy pop
" ... she uses technology to form sounds into songs that express the agony and ecstasy of existence. it is hard to think of reference points or other exponents, although it’s probably no coincidence that she’s signed to björk’s label, one little indian, and her debut album, amor fati, has been produced by matthew herbert, no stranger himself to idiosyncratic electronica. all cute breathy vocal-sighs and crashing dissonance, her music is what might have happened had petite meller signed to 90s warp, or the next (il)logical step after the likes of fka twigs, kelela and SZA: a sort of industrial-strength R&B; aaliyah meets aphex twin...
