palais des beaux arts museum // lille

" very happy to announce my next shows in june at palais des beaux arts, one of the most beautiful museums in lille, for their 20th birthday. i’ll be singing a cappella for the very time with the very talented feini-x crew choir on the 22nd, also playing new songs with crewdson & michel jocaille on the 23rd. here's a first teaser. more to come soon, watch this space ...

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 ... "

the guardian // the future 50 : the most exciting independent artists in the world ..

" ... not only does sarasara share a record label with björk, as well as an alien, future-facing aesthetic, but this french producer-singer has a passion for wiring tech into her tunes, too (...) her music is robotic: pitting african instruments against squelching, mutant machine beats. her debut, amor fati, also features co-production from the official authority on oddball creations, matthew herbert ...

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...
