Making simple and adorable little electronic pop tracks that contain the right elements to be easy enough to listen to day in day out is a big trend right now in the smaller commercial musical sector of this big and bad industry. Sasha’s take on this trend, however, puts a spin on it that comes as a surprise to many.
Continuing her enriched and funky way of life in her brand-new track ‘Waterworks’ she has created a unique and intriguing new sound which is nothing but catchy. Blending together the basic elements of any electronic track together with her own organic soundscapes she has created a track like no other. Characterised by choppy vocal samples, euphoric choruses and emotive lyrics she has benefited from influences such as Rae Morris and The Japanese House.
The Londoner’s lyricism reflects the nature of growing up and living in the capital, with her newest offerings highlighting the trials and tribulations faced by a millennial twenty-something living in the big bad world that is London. ‘Waterworks’, although simple on top, really hit the hard spots when it wants to create a unique and attention-grabbing way of listening to the track. With different breakdowns and the merging of a more stripped back genre of electronic towards the end, the track as a whole is very mature and generates a euphoric feeling within the listener as it progresses.
With a groundswell of support throughout the online community from the likes of DIY and The Line Of Best Fit greeting her first few releases in 2017, the 22-year-old altered her songwriting approach with producer Scott Colcombe earlier this year. Discussing the first product of these sessions, Sasha stated: “We wrote the song about getting drunk and telling your friends all your problems – something I have done on multiple occasions. We wanted the track to be a tongue-and-cheek, self-deprecating ‘pull yourself together’ moment. It made me excited to explore a new version of myself as an artist, looking at the complexity of adulthood and not taking myself or my music too seriously”.
