"She could become an avant-scene star" – The Quietus
"Esoteric and experimental… there is a lightness here, a diaphanous quality, that one associates with pop" – The Guardian
Sarasara (born 28 January 1986), is a French singer, songwriter, electronic musician, and record producer. Born in Fourmies, Nord, she began her music career in 2014. Following the success of her self-released David Bowie cover, ‘Heroes’, Sarasara moved to the UK to work on her first extended play in collaboration with Matthew Herbert. The EP drew the attention of Björk’s label, One Little Independent, who signed Sarah in January 2016. Sarasara subsequently released her debut studio album, Amor Fati in November 2016 to critical acclaim, being featured in The Guardian’s Future 50 rising music stars to look out for, Clash (magazine), Rolling Stone and Tsugi. Her work has been likened to Björk, Kelela, Aaliyah and Aphex Twin, drawing on various genres including electronic music, trip-hop, R&B, industrial and avant-garde.
Sarasara will release her third album ‘Elixir’ on March 1st 2024 on One Little Independent Records. Though consistently creating and experimenting – in 2022 she penned a tribute EP to Serge Gainsbourg – ‘Elixir’ marks her return to the album format following 2019’s ‘Orgone’. An audio manifesto for the angry and disenfranchised, the new LP is fierce, honest, and combative.
The Metropolist has described her as "... an artist to watch closely – a young woman who uses technology to document and portray the agonies and dichotomies of modern-day existence".
