French electronic singer-songwriter s a r a s a r a releases her debut album ‘a m o r f a t i’ today. Co-produced by s a r a s a r a and acclaimed musician Matthew Herbert, who also mixed the record, a m o r f a t i is an uncompromising and boundary pushing debut album
s a r a s a r a’s primal first single ‘Euphoria’ is available to stream now. An intense listen swelling with mystery, ‘Euphoria’ is a captivating introduction to s a r a s a r a’s truly ambitious and individual sound.
The second single taken from the debut album is ‘Supernova’, the glitchy, bass-heavy track throbs while s a r a s a r a’s birdsong-like vocal floats over bombastic electronic beats.
s a r a s a r a’s infatuation with electronic music at a young age found her seeking out clubs in Belgium at sixteen years old. She says: “I fell in love right away with the music, the people like a community, the freedom, the craziness, the whole nightlife way of thinking. I met fascinating people with such an incredible knowledge of all types of music, as they’d been playing in clubs since the 80’s. They who became friends and even family.”
After consuming the back catalogues of artists including Ricardo Villalobos and Aphex Twin, as well Matthew Herbert, s a r a s a r a began DJing in local bars and clubs. Having cut her teeth as a DJ, she yearned to further her creative outlet and she sold her record collection and decks and purchased gear to begin creating her own music. Combining a diverse range of influences such as Warp stalwarts LFO, Björk, Vanessa Paradis, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds along with her interest in philosophy, literature and film, s a r a s a r a found her voice as a bold and unique artist, with a true vision.
Graced with an enchanting voice tinged with mystery, s a r a s a r a has cultivated a precise and startling individual sound and aesthetic. She says: “ Music definitely has a concrete function for me. It’s not art for art’s sake, it’s an opportunity to get introspective. I have always felt the urge to question and master myself in order to make the best decisions, to make the most of the short time that I have in this life or body. I want every little thing to be exactly as I want it to be, as if I wanted it to repeat for eternity.”
