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). Available on CD and single black vinyl.
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 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.”
The artist 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.”
Experimental, distinctive, and yet unmistakably ’Sarasara’ – Orgone moves effortlessly through moods and layers of textured sound with 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.
