MOLLY SARLÈ – Shares new single ‘Twisted’ – New album ‘Karaoke Angel’ out 20th September via Partisan

August 23, 2019





MOLLY SARLÈ has shared a new song and accompanying video from her forthcoming debut LP Karaoke Angel – out Sept 20th via Partisan Records. ‘Twisted‘ is a captivatingly patient album highlight, and its video (dir. by Megan Lovallo) was shot in California this past spring on Sarlé’s 30th birthday.

Sarlé says of the song:

“’Twisted’ is a song I wrote to myself. I wrote it while working on a David Mamet play called Oleanna. The play is written so well that it’s impossible to tell who is right, and who is wrong! And so empathy ensues. That’s what ‘Twisted’ is about. If you are paying attention to your life, and to the lives of other people, it’s impossible to escape empathy. Unless you’re a sociopath. And yeah, sociopaths are playing quite large roles in our society these days…Enjoy!

Following her upcoming UK and US headline tour dates this autumn, Sarlé will also perform dates withWilco and Sylvan Esso. Please see further below for a full touring itinerary.

Sarlé (1/3rd of the group Mountain Man) previously shared other Karaoke Angel standouts including ‘Human’, ‘This Close’, and ‘Suddenly’. Those have earned early praise including The ObserverNPR MusicThe Sunday TimesThe Line of Best FitThe 405Gorilla Vs Bearand more. She was also recently profiled by Vanity Fair.

Karaoke Angel was written and recorded over a three year period – Sarlé lived in a cliffside trailer in Big Sur, spent time in a monastery, returned home to Durham (NC), finally settling into a church-turned-recording studio in Woodstock (NY). With production by Sam Evian, she combines those two worlds – West Coast incantations with a warm Appalachian glow – to make an album of open-hearted, unflinching songwriting.
