SHARES NEW TRACK AND VIDEO; ‘INTO ME SEE’
FROM SECOND ALBUM ORGONE
OUT JULY 5TH ON ONE LITTLE INDIAN RECORDS
Boundary-pushing artist and producer Sarasara returns with captivating second album Orgone, out on 5th July via One Little Indian Records, co-produced with Liam Howe of labelmates Sneaker Pimps (who has worked on albums by Nülifer Yanya, FKA Twigs, Tom Vek, Lana Del Rey etc).
Now she shares ‘Into Me See’ with an accompanying video – a brooding new track taken from the album.
“’Into Me See’ is about vulnerability and being seen” says Sarasara. “It takes a lot of courage to let yourself be vulnerable. It is very uncomfortable and there’s obviously a risk of being rejected and hurt. It requires pure honesty with yourself. This is a very difficult exercise because the only way to reach that point is to transcend your ego. That is the only way to feel free.”
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.”
Sarasara 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. “One evening, he knocked on my studio’s door, we had a lovely time and recorded ‘Tinkertoy’, then he said I was “a siren” and he ran away.”
Elaborating on the themes of the new album, the artist said: “Orgone is a very personal record, that took me 3 years to complete from start to finish. It is the story of me, being tossed around, in between 2 life cycles, change of careers, home, countries. It is me rebuilding myself after the violent end of a karmic relationship and falling in love again. It is also me, finding my way on a spiritual path, connecting with God, and learning the healing virtues of vulnerability, self-love, acceptance, surrendering to what is, being true to myself, faith. It is me taking responsibility for what I’m putting into the universe, reclaiming my creative power. It is me becoming a better version of myself.”
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.
