Continuing on the exciting wave of new electronic artists emerging from France, here's s a r a s a r a.

Just signed to One Little Indian, she sold her record collection so she could afford the gear to begin creating her own brand of very experimental, bold dance music, inspired by the likes of LFO, Nick Cave, Bjork and Vanessa Paradis.

Her debut album a m o r f a t i is co-produced by herself and Matthew Herbert, who also mixed the record.

Check out the premiere of her track 'Euphoria' below:

Q&A with s a r a s a r a

What are you listening to at the moment?

I have eclectic tastes! I’m back to techno music these days, probably because it’s summer. I love Monoloc, Levon Vincent and Mike Denhert.

I listen to Laura Nyro when I cook, A/T/O/S (pronounce “ A Taste of Struggle) when I bike.

I listen to classical music - I love Haydn, Wagner, Malher. And always with me also, Depeche Mode, Björk, Vanessa Paradis, Massive Attack, Portishead, Thievery Corporation, Jeff Buckley. 

What are you up to this summer?

There’s a lot going on. I’m working on videos this month, preparing my live shows, also working on new music already.

First gig, best gig?

My very first gig, was in a little club in France, in my hometown, in front of my classmates basically. It was for fun, I wasn’t writing my own music at that time.

I’ll play at St Giles in the Fields Church for the 21RPM Festival, October 1!

S a r a s a r a's debut album a m o r f a t i is released on 14 October 2016 via One Little Indian
